AP Program Recognized

The College Board has recognized the district’s 20-year-old AP program through its annual honor roll.

The distinction ranks the district’s AP program as one of 547 programs across the nation and Canada that have expanded access to AP coursework while simultaneously increasing the percentage of students earning a score of 3 or higher on AP exams.

The ranking also places the district among 28 New York schools that made the list and one of six Long Island schools that were recognized.

“I am, as always, impressed by our teachers and by how our students continually challenge themselves through rigorous coursework,” said high school Principal Dan Holtzman.

The high school currently provides 14 AP courses, ranging from math and science to social studies, English, art and music, for 250 students enrolled in the AP program.
