State School Superintendent Woods names AP Honor Schools for 2015

State School Superintendent Richard Woods named 609 Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Schools; this is an increase from 462 in 2014.

“These designations recognize schools where students are succeeding in college-level learning, and I’m pleased to say that the number of those successes continues to increase,” Superintendent Woods said. “I offer my congratulations to the students and teachers at all of these schools – it’s their hard work that led to this honor.”

AP courses and exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP courses are one of several ways Georgia students can access college-level learning opportunities. Students who receive a 3, 4, or 5 on AP exams may receive college credit.

The 2015 AP Honor Schools are named in five categories, based on the results of 2014 AP courses and exams.

The Georgia Department of Education began recognizing AP Honor Schools in 2008. This recognition began with AP Challenge, AP Access and Support, and AP Merit; AP STEM and AP STEM Achievement categories were added in 2011, and the AP Humanities category was added in 2015.

Principal Kimothy Hadley is pleased to announce that Americus-Sumter High School was named to three of the categories:  AP Access and Support, AP STEM and AP STEM Achievement. “We are so proud of the hard work from our students and teachers at The Americus-Sumter County High School.  Their dedication to achieve beyond the state and national averages on all standardized tests has paid off.”

To be named to the AP Access and Support Schools category, schools must have at least 30 percent of their AP exams taken by students who identified themselves as African American and/or Hispanic, and at least 30 percent of students taking AP exams must earn scores of 3 or higher.  AP STEM Schools are schools with students testing in at least two AP math courses and two AP science courses (AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, AP Statistics, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, AP Physics B, AP Physics C or AP Computer Science). AP STEM Achievement Schools are schools with students testing in at least two AP math courses and two AP science courses, and at least 40 percent of the students earn scores on AP math and AP science exams of 3 or higher.
