BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Berkeley Heights School District is one of 447 school districts in the United States and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 8th Annual AP® District Honor Roll.
To be included on the 8th Annual Honor Roll, Berkeley Heights had to, since 2015, increase the number of Governor Livingston High School students participating in AP while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. Reaching these goals shows that this district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for AP.
“This is an exciting and wonderful recognition for our school district to receive,” said Judith A. Rattner, Berkeley Heights Superintendent of Schools. “I am so proud of our students and educators for their hard work and outstanding achievement.”
Berkeley Heights is committed to expanding the availability of AP courses among prepared and motivated students of all backgrounds.
“Congratulations to all the educators and administrators in this district who have worked to clear a path for more students of all backgrounds to participate and succeed in AP,” said Trevor Packer, Senior Vice President, AP and Instruction, for the College Board. “These educators and administrators are fostering a culture in their schools and classrooms that allows students to face new challenges and build the confidence to succeed.”
Helping more students learn at a higher level and earn higher AP scores is an objective of all members of the AP community, from AP teachers to district and school administrators to college professors. Many districts are experimenting with initiatives and strategies to see how they can expand access and improve student performance at the same time.
In 2017, more than 4,000 colleges and universities around the world received AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, or both, and/or consideration in the admissions process. Inclusion in the 8th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on a review of three years of AP data, from 2015 to 2017, looking across 38 AP Exams, including world language and culture.
