Dec. 18, 2019:  Bronxville High School has earned a spot on the College Board’s 10th annual AP District Honor Roll list for its commitment to expanding access to Advanced Placement courses to its students.

The district is one of 250 school districts across the United States and Canada to earn the recognition for being a leader in making access to – and success in – AP courses a priority.

“We feel that Advanced Placement courses offer students the opportunity to challenge themselves in a college-level course during high school,” Principal Ann Meyer said. “All students deserve the ability to take these courses if they choose. Admittedly, some courses are less likely to have students who do not meet the prerequisites than others. Along with increased enrollment in AP courses, our students continue to score well on the exams.”

To be included in the list, since 2017, the district had increased the number of students taking AP courses while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP exam scores of 3 or higher. According to the College Board, reaching those goals shows that Bronxville High School is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP.
