APhonorrollimageDistrict 211 has been named to the College Board’s 5th Annual AP District Honor Roll, and is one of 26 school districts in Illinois to receive the award. This is the second time in the award’s five-year history that District 211 is a recipient.

The Honor Roll recognizes 547 school districts in the U.S. and Canada that have increased access to AP course work while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores 3 or higher on AP exams.

“We’re very proud of our students and teachers for taking the challenge of more AP classes, as well as attempting the exams to see if they can get college credit,” said Lisa Small, associate superintendent of Instruction at District 211. “Our goal is that each student experiences a college level class, whether it’s through an AP class or a dual-credit class before they graduate.”

Inclusion on the 5th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data, from 2012 to 2014, for the following criteria. Since 2012, District 211 has seen an increase of 317 students taking advanced placement exams for a total of 2,978 District 211 students. Additionally, since 2012 the District has increased the number of exams taken, totaling 6,224 exams.
