Washington Township School District Named to the College Boards Sixth Annual Advanced Placement Honor Roll

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP –  The Washington Township School District has been named to the College Board’s Sixth Annual Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Roll.
The school is one of 425 school districts in the United States and Canada to receive the honor and is the second for the District.
Requirements to be added on the Sixth Annual Honor Roll include that the District must increase the number of students who participate in AP while maintaining the number of students earning AP exam scores of three or higher. In order to be included, Districts must:

  • Increase participation/access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts, and at least 11 percent in small districts.

  • Increase or maintain the percentage of exams taken by black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students.

  • Improve or maintain performance levels when comparing the 2015 percentage of students scoring a 3 or higher to the 2013 percentage, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70 percent of its AP students are scoring a 3 or higher.

“The path to success starts with providing our students with educational opportunity,” said Ann Moore, WTHS Principal.  “For that, we thank our Board of Education for their support of our curriculum initiatives.  From there, the strong commitment of the educators who prepare and deliver high-level instruction and relevant learning experiences set the stage for student success.  Our AP students are motivated learners, and the benefits they gain from accepting the challenge of these accelerated academics go far beyond their high school experience, positively influencing their college experience and their career path.  We are so proud of their desire to learn and of their achievement.  I encourage our current and future high school students to explore their AP options.”
