Date: 
Monday, December 19, 2016

Six Iowa school districts have been honored by the College Board for their work in providing Advanced Placement courses to their students.

Grinnell-Newburg and Williamsburg were added to the College Board’s Seventh Annual Honor Roll for the first time this year. They join four districts that have been named to the honor roll several times: Ankeny, Indianola, Iowa City and Waukee.

The Iowa districts were part of the 433 school districts in the United States and Canada placed on the Honor Roll this year. In order to make the Honor Roll, districts had to simultaneously achieve increases in access to Advanced Placement courses for a broad number of students and also maintain or improve the rate at which their AP students earned scores of 3 or higher on an AP exam.

The College Board is a mission-driven not-for-profit organization that connects students to college success and opportunity. Learn more.
