 Welcome to
AP Government & Politics
(United States and Comparative)

 Today’s increasingly interdependent world has made it necessary for students to think globally. It is imperative for young citizens to understand political processes and political events not just from our own country, but from a diversity of countries around the world. To gain understanding of international events we must examine political structures and perspectives of other nations and how they compare, affect, and interact with one another. Comparisons assist both in identifying problems and in analyzing policymaking.
Advanced Placement United States Government and Politics along with Advanced Placement Comparative Government provides a yearlong course on government. We focus on the United States along with six core comparative countries: the United Kingdom, Russia, China, Mexico, Nigeria, and Iran.

*** Students should refer to the class VISION page for up to date announcements and class resources.
