Another Year, Another Academic Honor

Super senior student-athletes Kasey Linkhart and Elizabeth Smith frame the poster celebrating that YSHS/MMS was recently named for our 1st time to the College Board’s Advanced Placement Honor Roll. According to the College Board, “the AP District Honor Roll recognizes school districts across the U.S. and Canada for increasing AP access to these students while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning AP exam scores of 3 or higher. AP District Honor Roll recipients are committed to expanding the availability of AP courses among prepared and motivated students of all backgrounds. Inclusion on the 7th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data, from 2014 to 2016, for the following criteria:

  • Increased participation/access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts, and at least 11 percent in small districts;

  • Increased or maintained the percentage of exams taken by African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students who scored 3+ on at least one AP Exam; and

  • Improved performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2016 scoring a 3 or higher to those in 2014, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70 percent of its AP students are scoring a 3 or higher.”

Yellow Springs High School is one of six Southwestern school districts and one of 32 Ohio districts who received this honor. This is roughly the top 5% of all Ohio Districts. More info at:
