The cost savings for BHS families is $408,000 at an average rate of $170/credit hour at Portland State University. (Estimates based on PSU 2018-2019 undergrad resident tuition rate.)

A Different Kind of Class

From the moment you enter an AP classroom, you'll notice the difference—in the teacher's approach to the subject, in the attitude of your classmates, in the way you start to think. You'll engage in intense discussions, solve problems collaboratively, learn to write clearly and persuasively and respond to university level questions.

Find Your Passion

With 23 AP courses to choose from, at Beaverton High School, you’ll be able to explore your interests and discover new passions. In AP classes, you'll study fascinating topics and ideas that just might become the foundation of your future college major or career.

Prepare to Succeed in College

Most four-year colleges in the United States and colleges in more than 60 other countries give students credit, advanced placement or both on the basis of AP Exam scores. Find scores required and credits awarded by Oregon Public Universities. By entering college with AP credits, you'll have the time to move into upper level courses, pursue a double major or study abroad. Find colleges and universities with AP credit policy information.

AP and the Cost of College

Research shows that your AP experience can benefit you in several important ways when you reach college:

  • AP students are more likely to graduate from college in four years - students who take longer to graduate at public colleges and universities can spend up to $19,000(1) for each additional year.
  • AP helps students qualify for scholarships - 31 percent of colleges and universities look at AP experience when determining scholarships.(2)

Health Careers



Welcome to the BSD Health Careers Program!
A Partial Day Options Program at Beaverton High School


"In the first year, I liked learning about CPR, getting certified, and teaching it to other people. The second year of the course focuses on community-based clinical rotations, which gives you the chance to experience the environment of the profession and to talk to people who have been through the training necessary. All in all, it’s a really great experience."
​~AHS Student



The BSD Health Careers Program encourages their students to push themselves further by learning about professional behaviors, skills and educational pathways of all areas in Health Care.  From working with Providence, Kaiser, OHSU, TVF&R, Metro-West and many other local health care providers, we strive to get students partnering with the community professionals to help determine their future goals.
