Mauston High School was named to the College Board’s 9th Annual AP Honor Roll competing with school district’s across the United States.
Criteria to qualify for this honor roll list involves “a commitment to expanding access to AP coursework to students of all backgrounds and demonstrated improvements in student performance,” said Mauston Superintendent Christine Weymouth. “This is wonderful news for our high school. It means that Mauston High School is one of 373 school districts in the United States to earn a spot on the College Board’s 9th Annual District Honor Roll.”
School districts qualify for the honor roll list when they achieve increases in access to advanced placement courses for a broader number of students while also maintaining or improving the rate at which their AP students earned scores of 3 or higher on an AP exam.
“This kind of recognition happens over time and with a great deal of hard work from many individuals,” Weymouth said. “We are proud to call Mauston High School a College Board AP Honor Roll recipient.”
According to national data, approximately 50 percent of underrepresented students with a high degree of readiness for AP are participating in the program in 2018.
The selection for the list was made based on an examination of three years of data.
Criteria also included increasing the portion of minority students taking exams and an increase in performance levels from 2016.
Mauston High School Principal Jim Dillin praised the hard work of students and staff at the school.
“We’re just extremely proud of our teaching staff and our students,” Dillin said. “They are the ones who put in the incredible amount of time to do the work that’s needed to earn this.”
