Minnetonka School District Proves Itself Again!
The Minnetonka Public School District has proved itself again being one of only 11 Minnesota districts and 539 school districts across the United States and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 3rd Annual AP District Honor Roll for simultaneously increasing access to Advanced Placement course work while maintaining a high percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams.
Achieving both of these goals is the ideal scenario for a district’s AP program because it indicates that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are likely to benefit most from rigorous AP course work.
Since 2010, Minnetonka High School has increased the number of students participating in AP from 687 to 835 while maintaining a high percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of three or more. 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 above on an AP Exam — which can potentially save students and their families thousands of dollars in college tuition!!
Minnetonka proves itself over and over.
