CALHOUN, GA – Georgia State School Superintendent Richard Woods has named Gordon Central High School an Advanced Placement (AP) Honor School for 2022.
AP exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP courses are one of several ways Georgia students can access college-level learning at the high school level; students who receive a 3, 4, or 5 on an AP exam may receive college credit. The 2022 AP Honor Schools were named in eight categories, based on the results of 2021 AP courses and exams.
Gordon Central High School has been named an AP Access and Support school. Access and Support Schools are schools with at least 30 percent of their AP exams taken by students who identified themselves as African-American and/or Hispanic, and 30 percent of all AP exams earning scores of 3 or higher.
“We are committed to expanding opportunities for Georgia students, including in advanced and accelerated coursework,” State Superintendent Woods said. “I offer my sincere congratulations to each of this year’s AP Honor Schools, and thank each teacher, student, and school leader who worked hard to create strong AP opportunities in these Georgia schools.”
The Georgia Department of Education began recognizing AP Honor Schools in 2008.
