GREENWICH, Conn. – Greenwich Public Schools is one of 547 school districts in the U.S. and Canada that was honored by the College Board with placement on the 5th Annual AP District Honor Roll.
The honor is for increasing access to AP coursework while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of three or higher on AP exams.
Reaching these goals indicates that the district successfully identified motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for the opportunity of AP. Since 2012, Greenwich Public Schools has increased the number of students participating in AP while improving the number of students earning AP exam scores of three or higher.
“I am proud to lead a district that prepares and encourages students to challenge themselves academically,” said Superintendent of Schools William S. McKersie.
“Greenwich is a high performing public school district, however, we do not sit on our laurels. We continuously strive to improve and have made concerted efforts to expand the participation of our students in Advanced Placement courses, and to prepare them to be successful in those courses. I am pleased and proud that the efforts of our staff and students have been recognized.”
In 2014, more than 3,800 colleges and universities around the world received AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, and/or consideration in the admission process, with many colleges and universities in the United States offering credit in one or more subjects for qualifying AP scores.
This is the second consecutive year that Greenwich has earned the AP Honor Roll distinction.
