The College Board has announced that Pennsbury School District has earned a position on the 9th annual AP District Honor Roll! Pennsbury is among only 373 school districts in North America to receive this honor.
“I am proud of our students, teachers, and administrators in building our AP Program and their strong dedication to high levels of achievement in both their coursework and on the AP testing,” said Theresa Ricci, Director of Secondary Education.
The annual AP District Honor Roll recognizes districts for increasing access to Advanced Placement course work while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP exams. 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. Reaching these goals indicates that our School District is successfully identifying motivated, academically-prepared students who are likely to benefit from rigorous course work, according to the College Board.
“This is a testament to the hard work that our curriculum coordinators and teaching staff put into implementing the Advanced Placement Program at Pennsbury High School,” said Reggie Meadows, Principal of Pennsbury High School East. “I am proud of how well our students challenge themselves to perform at a high level.”
