Cedarcrest High School makes Advanced Placement Honor Roll

Cedarcrest High School has earned a spot for its second consecutive year on the national College Board’s AP Honor Roll.

Only eight districts in the state received the recognition, for attracting more students to Advanced Placement, or AP, classes, while maintaining or improving the percentage of students to pass the tests.  To qualify for the AP Honor Roll, districts must not only keep AP exam scores high, they must also show increased participation in AP classes, by 4, 6, or 11 percent, depending on the size of the district, over the past three years.

Cedarcrest High School offered two AP courses in 1997 and now offers 10. In that same time, the percentage of CHS students earning passing scores (3 or higher) increased from 55 percent to more than 80 percent.
