Baldwinsville Central School District is one of fewer than 400 school districts in the nation being honored by the College Board with a place on its AP Achievement List for opening AP classroom doors to a significantly broader pool of students, while maintaining or improving the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher.
From 2008 to 2010, the Baldwinsville Central School District has increased the number of students participating in AP from 249 to 296, while increasing the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher, the score typically needed to earn college credit, from 70 percent in 2008 to 72 percent in 2010.
Congratulations to C.W. Baker High School students, staff and administration for their outstanding accomplishments and high standards of excellence. The district currently offers 12 AP level courses and based on student requests for the 2011 school year, the district has been approved to offer two additional AP level courses in government and politics and psychology.
The AP Achievement List is made up of all school districts that are simultaneously expanding opportunity and improving performance. The list includes 388 school districts representing 43 states, with California's 37 districts on the list representing the largest number of districts from a single state, followed by Michigan with 29 districts and Pennsylvania with 28 districts.
"The AP Achievement List districts are defying expectations by expanding access while enabling their students to maintain or improve their AP Exam scores," said College Board President Gaston Caperton.
