Abington School District on national AP Achievement List

    The Abington School District was recently named to College Board’s AP Achievement List — an honor bestowed to fewer than 400 schools in the nation.

     

    Based on improving Advanced Placement test scores and a diversifying class of AP students, the school made the list after the three-year evaluation period between 2008 and 2010, the Glenside News Globe Times Chronicle reports.

    To make the list, the district had to: increase course participation by 7 percent, maintain or increase the percentage of exams taken by African American, Hispanic and American Indian students and maintain or improve the percentage of students scoring at least a 3 out of 5 on the test.

    The district had a 59 percent increase in the number of participating students between 2008 and 2010.
