Jonathan Alder Local School District was named to the seventh Annual AP District Honor Roll by The College Board. Only 433 districts across the country earned this distinction.
“We are proud of our students and teachers for their hard work and willingness to engage in the rigorous expectations of the Advanced Placement Program,” said Mr. Mike Aurin, Jonathan Alder High School Principal.
To be included on the AP Honor Roll, districts simultaneously had to increase access to Advanced Placement coursework and maintain or increase the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams (scored 1-5). AP Exam scores of three or higher may be used to earn college credits.
“We are excited to be able to increase the AP opportunities for our students while maintaining a high standard of excellence,” Aurin exclaimed.
Honor Roll Districts defy the expectation that expanding access automatically results in a decline in the percentage of exams earning scores of 3 or better. This year’s Honor Roll is based on Jonathan Alder’s AP Exam scores from 2014-2016.
