Rabun County High School Named an AP Honor School

State School Superintendent Richard Woods has named 272 Georgia Schools as an Advanced Placement (AP) Honor school, and Rabun County has made the list.

Out of the six possible categories, Rabun County was placed in two. Including, AP Challenge School, which are schools with enrollments of 900 or fewer students, and are testing in four of the core areas (English, math, science, and social studies), and AP STEM School, which are schools with students testing in at least two AP math courses and two AP science courses.

Georgia is 13th in the nation for the percentage of students earning the highest AP exam scores (3, 4, and 5) and tied for third in the nation in one-year percentage point growth in the percentage of public school graduates scoring a 3, 4, or 5 on at least one of the exams.

This list is based on the results of 2015 AP courses and exams.
