Chester County school districts recognized for Advanced Placement achievements

    Between 2008 and 2010, Coatesville Area and Great Valley school districts increased the percentage of students that earned Advanced Placement exam scores of three (out of five) or better. In that time, Great Valley’s AP enrollment went from 181 to 312.

    It’s among those reasons why both Chester County districts have received national recognition.

    The districts are among 26 in the state and 388 nationwide honored last week for making AP classes accessible to more students, the West Chester Daily Local reports. The AP District Achievement Honor Roll recognizes districts for improvements to the AP program, which provides college-level courses to high school students with the chance to earn college credit.
