GPA Weighting

I don't feel my school fairly weights GPA. AP courses get 4.5 and honors and college prep (the lowest section) get 4.25 for an A+. I am taking courses my school doesn't even allow most students in my grade to take and have by far the most rigorous schedule. However, I earn B's and B+s in some AP classes and therefore have a lower GPA and a lower class rank. If I took the college prep or honors courses, I honestly feel I would easily have an A+. Basically, I'm not sure that my rank will even be in the top quintile(the most specific my school will rank) since my grade only has 60 students and I really don't think it's fair. Is this something I would need to explain on my apps?
