Area districts honored make national AP honor roll

By John Published: November 7, 2011

Stow-Munroe Falls, Aurora, Revere and North Canton are among the 23 districts in Ohio that made the national Advanced Placement Honor Roll.

According to the College Board, which administers the national AP program:

A total of 367 school districts across the U.S. and Canada are being honored by the College Board by being placed on the Second Annual AP Honor Roll for simultaneously increasing access to Advanced Placement® course work while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. Achieving both of these goals is the ideal scenario for a district's AP program because it indicates that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are likely to benefit most from AP course work. The majority of U.S. colleges and universities grant college credit or advanced placement for a score of 3 or above on AP Exams.

The Second Annual AP Honor Roll is made up of only those school districts that are simultaneously expanding opportunity and improving performance. The Second Annual AP Honor Roll includes 367 school districts across 45 states in the U.S. and six provinces in Canada. The state of Pennsylvania had the largest representation of districts, with a total of 34 on the list, followed by New York and Massachusetts, which both have 30.
