ATLANTA -- Georgia School Superintendent Dr. John Barge named 367 Advanced Placement Honor Schools in 2012.
Advanced Placement classes and exams are administed by the College Board and are designed to offer rigorous college-level learning options to high school students. Those who receive scores of 3, 4 or 5 on national AP exams may earn college credit.
"Georgia has much to be proud of when it comes to the success of Advanced Placement," Barge said Tuesday. "Much of this success can be attributed to the dedication to rigor and excellence at each of our AP Honor Schools."
AP Merit Schools are schools with at least 20 percent of students taking AP exams, and 50 percent of all exams earning scores of 3 or higher.
