Issaquah School District named to AP honor roll

Issaquah School District was named by the College Board to its third annual Advanced Placement District Honor Roll Nov. 13 for simultaneously increasing access to AP work while increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP exams.

“AP classes are part of our overall goal of challenging all students with rigorous coursework that prepares them for college and other post-secondary opportunities,” Superintendent Steve Rasmussen said in a statement. “To be included on the AP Honor Roll, therefore, is great news: More students are participating and succeeding.”

More than 90 percent of colleges and universities across the U.S. offer college credit, Advanced Placement or both for a score of 3 or higher on an AP exam, which can potentially save students and their families thousands of dollars in college tuition.

Eighteen Washington school districts are among the 539 districts across the nation that earned the honor.
