Can anybody tell me about their experiences with schools in Palmerton. How does it compare to the Northern Lehigh School District? Does the High School offer AP classes? Any info. is greatly appreciated.

Here are two websites to help you with your research: https://apcourseaudit.epiconline.org/ledger/index.php and SchoolMatters - Home

The first one will give you the AP classes that a school is accredited to teach. The second one will give you stats and demographics on schools, school districts and communities. Just numbers, but a place to start.

If the AP courses are very important to you, I suggest the Northampton school district. They have many more AP classes than No. Lehigh, Palmerton, or Lehighton, and reasonable housing is available too.

There are districts like Parkland who have the biggest and best of the AP courses, but the average person just can't afford to live there.

There's another angle to AP classes and college acceptance. Colleges look to see if the student is taking the most challenging classes. The students that have High Schools with over a dozen AP choices are under alot of pressure to take as many AP's as possible so the Guidance counselor can say that they are taking the hardest path. Nothing wrong with waiting for college to take college level classes.

Any particular reason why nerrad? I'd love to hear your answer. I'm sure it will be very non-judgemental and absent of sweeping generalizations. And no, I'm not from Palmerton.

Also, Palmerton is not in the Lehigh Valley, it is technically in Carbon County. I would try posting your question on the NEPA thread as well.
