This kind of question depends entirely on the kind of school you go to. If your school offers no AP classes, dual enrollment in challenging courses at a local community college will most likely give you the same boost in admissions that taking a rigorous, AP-heavy schedule would. In fact, you may even get additional points for seeking out a challenging course load when your school doesn’t offer one.
However, if your school offers both a lot of AP courses and Dual Enrollment, they’ll probably be about the same in the admissions committee’s eyes (assuming they’re equally challenging).
Keep in mind that Dual Enrollment is great if 1) you want to get started on a specific or unusual area of study, or 2) your school offers no AP classes, but it can be tricky to manage and not all your classes will transfer like AP’s do. Make sure you know all the details before you get started in something like Dual Enrollment.
So sorry about the delay, hope this helps!
