NEWPORT-Cocke County High School recently became one of
only four Tennessee high schools/systems to receive Honor Roll status from the
Advanced Placement (AP) College Board for having simultaneously increased the
students' access to AP courses and improved the rate at which their AP students
earned scores of 3 or above on an AP exam.
A total of 539 school districts across the United States
and Canada were recognized by the College Board on its third annual report.
"Achieving both of these goals is the ideal scenario
for a district's AP program," said College Board President David Coleman,
"because it indicates that the district is successfully identifying
motivated, academically prepared students who are likely to benefit most from
rigorous AP course work."
