In March, Gordon Central High School was named an Advanced Placement (AP) Access and Support school by Georgia State School Superintendent, Richard Woods. Access and Support Schools are schools where at least 30 percent of the AP exams taken by students identify themselves as African American and/or Hispanic, and 30 percent of all AP exams earn a score of 3 or higher. At the April Board of Education meeting, the AP Teaching Staff at Gordon Central High School were recognized for their dedication to their students both inside and outside of the classroom. Without the team of committed AP educators, this award would not be possible. Joining the Gordon County Board of Education for the recognition were: Alan Hughes, Elizabeth Parrott, John Albright, Renee Hughes, and Shannon Rainwater. #GoCoSchools #GETGCS
