The Canajoharie Central School District is the only local school district and one of just 26 in New York state to be named to the College Board’s eighth annual Advanced Placement District Honor Roll.
The list was released in December and includes 447 schools nationwide. Overall, the list is focused on student access and success on Advanced Placement (AP) tests over the past three years.
“The AP District Honor Roll recognizes school districts committed to increasing access to AP for underrepresented students while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher,” according to the College Board’s website. “AP District Honor Roll recipients are committed to expanding the availability of AP courses among prepared and motivated students of all backgrounds.”
“This honor is a testament to how hard our students and teachers work in the classroom to prepare for academic challenges,” Superintendent of Schools Deborah Grimshaw said. “Together we are making every learner world ready.”
