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."
