Advanced Placement at JHSDuring the 2016-2017 academic year. 511 students took 859 AP Exams and 74.2% of our students scored a 3 or higher. Of those students, College Board recognized 169 students as AP Scholars. Also, 12 of the 20 courses offered earned higher pass rates than the global averages, with three of those courses maintaining an average 20% higher than the global average.
We believe we have a strong AP Program. We will continue to build on what works and are moving in a direction to increase rigor, success, access and opportunity.
