How is High5 AP different from other test prep programs?

Most AP prep programs are tailored for the needs of students. While students can purchase a discounted subscription to High5 AP for their own private practice, our program is designed for and offered to teachers first. It is designed to help you teach students the vital skills they will need to score well on the new test. Teaching AP history is a challenge no matter how much experience you have. We want to help ease some of the stress and lighten your load so your focus can stay on teaching the material.
