ORLANDO, Fla. -

For the second time in three years, the College Board has named the Orange County School District as one of the top AP programs in the state.

The District Honor Roll distinguishes programs that increase the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP exams.

The College Board says the growth in student participation and scores indicates that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically-prepared students who are likely to benefit most from rigorous AP course work.

Superintendent Barbara Jenkins said, “We are extremely proud of our schools and students for this accomplishment. Orange County Public Schools remains committed to academic acceleration and increased rigor for all students. The fact we are on the AP® District Honor Roll serves as an example of that commitment.”
