Recently, State School Superintendent Richard Woods named Bradwell Institute an Advance Placement (AP) Honor School in the category of AP Access and Support Schools and AP STEM Schools and Liberty County High in the area of AP Access and Support Schools.
AP courses are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP courses are one of several ways Georgia students can access college-level learning opportunities while in high school. Students who receive a 3, 4, or 5 on AP exams are often eligible to receive college credit for those courses.
AP Access and Support Schools are schools with at least 30 percent of their AP exams taken by students who identified themselves as African-American and/or Hispanic, and 30 percent of all AP exams earning scores of 3 or higher. AP STEM Schools are schools with a minimum of five students testing in at least four AP STEM courses. (AP Calculus, AP Statistics, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, AP Physics, or AP Computer Science).
Georgia’s public school class of 2019 has the 17th highest AP pass rate in the nation, according to data released by the College Board.
State Superintendent Woods stated, “I commend the students, teachers, and staff of these 255 schools. Behind this recognition is an enormous amount of hard work, and I congratulate all those who worked to expand access, improve performance, and build strong Advanced Placement programs in their schools.”
“We are very proud of the Advanced Placement opportunities that are available to students at both of our high schools,” said school Superintendent Dr. Franklin Perry. “Our AP teachers and students work extremely hard and we applaud them in achieving this honor.”
