Georgia School Superintendent Dr. John Barge has named 462 Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Schools for 2014 in five categories. These categories are: AP Challenge Schools, where schools of 900 or fewer students test in four of the core areas; AP Access and Support Schools, where at least 30 percent of AP exams are taken by minority students and 30 percent of all AP test-takers earn scores of 3 or higher; AP Merit Schools, where at least 20 percent of the student population take AP exams and at least 50 percent earn scores of 3 or higher; AP STEM Schools, where students test in at least two AP math courses and two AP science courses; and AP STEM Achievement Schools where students test in at least two AP math courses and two AP science courses and at least 40 percent earn scores of 3 or higher. Barge says, "There are so many Georgia schools that have great success with Advanced Placement. I am so pleased to see this success grow to more and more of our schools this year. These achievements can be attributed to the outstanding students and teachers at each of our AP Honor Schools." To access the list of schools in each category, go here.
