Reported by firstname.lastname@example.org on 12/7/10
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) provides motivated high school students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses and to earn college credit for their successful performance on the AP exams.
In District 204, 1,527 students took a total of 3,035 AP exams in May of 2010, with 85.3 percent of those tests resulting in a score of 3 or above (on a 5-point scale), providing students with the equivalent of college credit while in high school.
These achievements ranked District 204's high schools among Newsweek's "America's Top High Schools" for 2010, placing them in the top 6 percent of public schools measured by the publication's index, which is based on the number of AP tests taken divided by the number of graduating seniors.
