39 DoDEA High Schools Recognized on AP Honor Roll

AP Honor Roll Platinum Logo

The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose Advanced Placement programs are delivering results for students while broadening access to advanced coursework. Schools can earn this recognition annually based on criteria that reflect a commitment to increasing college-going culture, providing opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximizing college readiness.

“I am incredibly proud of our military-connected students and the dedicated efforts of our educators to prepare them for success in college and careers,” said DoDEA Director Thomas Brady. “Having 39 of our 40 high schools recognized on the AP Honor Roll reflects the culture of high achievement and commitment to excellence across DoDEA.”

The College Board has four levels of recognition for the AP School Honor Roll based on qualifying criteria that are anchored in research-based relationships between AP and college outcomes: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. For a school to be recognized, it must meet each of the criteria for their students in the most recent graduating class.
