D155 Named to 8th Annual AP® District Honor Roll
The College Board named Community High School District 155 to the 8th Annual AP® Honor Roll for increasing access to Advanced Placement® courses for students while maintaining or improving scores on the AP® exam. Students must earn a 3 or higher. The honor roll includes 447 school districts nationwide and Canada. This is the sixth consecutive year D155 has been named. Only 23 school district in Illinois were recognized.

“For the last six years, we have identified more students to enroll in an Advanced Placement® course and our achievement rate has not changed. Students continue to earn a 3 or higher on their AP exams, which is the result of exceptional teaching practices,” said Steve Olson, interim superintendent. “Regardless of the course, we want our students to be challenged so they can be better prepared for life after high school.”

During the 2016-17 school year, nearly 37 percent of students completed one AP® course. District 155 offers 29 AP® courses in eight subject areas. Students took 3,568 AP® exams and 79 percent received a 3, 4 or 5.
