AP Human Geography Readiness Test

During the 2018 – 2019 school year, MND will offer Advanced Placement Human Geography as a Social Studies semester option for freshmen.

  • Students who scored in the 90th percentile or above or achieved a CSQ score of 125 or above on the High School Placement Test (HSPT) have already been recommended for this course.

  • Any other student who would like to register for the AP Human Geography class is required to take the AP Human Geography Readiness Evaluation which will be used to help determine if a student should take AP Human Geography as a freshman.


Advanced Placement Human Geography is a course structured to meet the requirements of a college-level course. The five skills that students will master are:

  1. Use and think about maps and spatial data
  2. Understand and interpret the implications of associations among phenomena in places
  3. Recognize and interpret at different scales the relationship among patterns and processes
  4. Define regions and evaluate the regionalization process
  5. Characterize and analyze changing interconnections among places.


Students in this course will learn curriculum that is in alignment with college standards. Students will take the College Board AP Human Geography Exam in early May. A passing score on this exam will allow students to earn college credit.

The AP Human Geography Readiness Evaluation will be administered at MND on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 3:45 PM. Students will meet in the foyer.
