5 Montana School Districts Make Advanced Placement Honor Roll
HELENA, Mont. – Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau announced today that five Montana school districts are among 433 districts nationwide being honored by the College Board on the 7th annual Advanced Placement (AP®) District Honor Roll. In order to make the cut, districts must have increased access to AP® coursework while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP® exams.
7th annual AP® District Honor Roll:
Great Falls Public Schools
Hamilton School District
Helena School District
Polson School District
Sweet Grass County High School District
“Congratulations to the Montana school districts that are expanding access to high-quality classes that often result in college credit for students,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau said. “Students who complete AP coursework get a head-start on their college education, setting them up for continued success.”
During the 2015/2016 school year, Montana students completed 4,661 AP® exams in 30 different subjects ranging from biology and art, to English and statistics. Montana’s 2017 AP® Summer Institute will include workshops for educators in chemistry, calculus, English language and composition, Spanish language and culture, and U.S. history. The institute gives Montana high school educators an opportunity to receive professional training that will raise academic standards and improve college and career readiness among their students.
