Millis Public Schools recognized for Advanced Placement Success

Millis Public Schools have once again been recognized by the College Board on its Annual District Honor Roll; one of 433 districts in the United States and Canada, and one of 25 districts in the state to receive recognition. According to the College Board:  "The AP District Honor Roll recognizes school districts across the U.S. and Canada for increasing AP access to 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.

It is appropriate that the honor roll recognizes the entire district because all educators in Millis have a hand in preparing students to have the academic skills and confidence in themselves to take on challenging college-level work.  It is also an indication of parent investment in their students' educations, and the support of a community that promotes academic achievement among all students.
