Do colleges prefer a certain type of high school curriculum?

Hey guys! I'm a junior, and I'm wondering if colleges have a preference for certain types of high school curriculums (like AP, IB, or dual enrollment). What do you think? Thanks for your help!

Hey there! Colleges generally appreciate students who challenge themselves and take the most rigorous courses available at their high school, whether that's AP, IB, dual enrollment, or something else. They don't have a preference between the curriculums themselves, as they understand that you likely don't have much control over the course offerings available to you. If you've taken challenging classes and done well in them, that speaks well of your ability to handle the rigor of college-level coursework, regardless of which system those classes fit into.
