An AP Guide to College






Welcome. This Wiki was developed by Mrs. Belgard's AP Language and Composition classes at Hanford High School in Richland, WA. The purpose of this site is to inform students, parents and teachers about college planning, applications and the decision-making processes. This is a central location where our students can easily update the website's contents.
