This seems to be the question on the mind of many a parent and student alike. Which one to take? Well it all depends what your aspirations are and what your college degree program is like. If you are going into engineering, business, the sciences, and/or math then by all means press on and take Calculus. If you have a full schedule and don't want to be too overwhelmed then just go for the AB Calc. This class will cover less material and at a slower pace. If you are up for it and can devote the time to your studies the BC Calc will put you in a good position to pass out of two full semesters of college calculus i.e.Calc 1 and Calc 2. Now if your schedule is full of other AP classes, extracurriculars, and/or higher math is not needed for your college degree then by all means take AP stats. But, keep in mind everything you have been learning over the past 4 years or more has been preparing the ground work for you to take Calculus so don't bail out now unless you have some good reasons(see above)!
