College Board names Mayfield High School to National AP District Honor Roll

MAYFIELD — A total of 539 schools districts, across the U.S. and Canada, including Mayfield City Schools are being recognized by the College Board with placement on the 3rd Annual AP® District Honor Roll for simultaneously increasing access to Advanced Placement® course work while increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams.

Achieving both of these goals is the ideal scenario for a district’s AP program because it indicates that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are likely to benefit most from rigorous AP course work. More than 90 percent of colleges and universities across the U.S. offer college credit, advanced placement or both for a score of 3 or higher on an AP Exam — which can potentially save students and their families thousands of dollars in college tuition.

Mayfield High School has been named among this elite group of schools for its AP program by the College Board.

"We made the conscious decision to grow and to continue to grow our AP program," said Mayfield High School Principal Anthony Loewer. "We expanded the program, threw out the net and pushed our kids to achieve. As an educator I couldn't be more proud of our students and teachers. This is achievement."

Mayfield High School added World History to its AP index this year and will add English Language & Composition next school year, Mr. Loewer said. In total, Mayfield offers its students 20 AP courses.

A total of 539 school districts across 44 of 50 states in the U. S. and six Canadian provinces achieved honor roll status.
