Yes, we have a different system here in Quebec. One less year of university, one less of high school, and instead two years of CEGEP, which is some sort of community college I would say.
You just spend two years doing at least half classes of general education (french (4), english (2), philosophy (3), gym(3)) and the other half a package deal over one area (science, social sciences, administration, humanities) where you learn a bit of everything. The science diploma for instance gives Differential Calculus, Integral Calculus, Linear algebra I, Newtonian Mechanics, E&M, Waves & Modern Physics, 1-2 classes of biology, 2-3 classes of chemistry. The whole curriculum is carved in stone.
To the best of my knowledge, AP classes are a foreign concept. I went to an IB high school and got nothing for it.
