Central High School Named To The AP Honor Roll

Central High School Placed on the College Board’s 5th Annual Advanced Placement District Honor Roll for Significant Gains in Student Access and Success


Central Public Schools is one of 547 school districts in the U.S. and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 5th Annual AP District Honor Roll for increasing access to Advanced Placement course work while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. Central High School is one of only 10 high schools in the state of Minnesota to achieve this honor.  2014 is a milestone year for the AP District Honor Roll, and more districts are achieving this objective than ever before.

Reaching these goals indicates that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for the opportunity of AP. Since 2012, Central High School has increased the number of students participating in AP while improving the number of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. Students who receive a score of 3 or higher on the Advance Placement Test in the spring are eligible to receive college credit for their efforts.

The privilege of being named to the College Board’s 5th Annual AP District Honor Roll is a testament that our students are working hard and taking advantage of the opportunities they are provided with in the area of college preparatory classes. It also demonstrates the dedication and commitment that Central High School staff members are making to help students find academic success and help them prepare for their post-secondary options.
