Science Hill earns Silver recognition on the 2023 AP School Honor Roll
Science Hill High School has earned the Silver recognition on the 2023 Advanced Placement (AP) School Honor Roll according to information released by the College Board. The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP programs are delivering results and broadening access for students.
Schools can earn the Honor Roll recognition annually based on their ability to increase their school’s college-going culture, to provide opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximizing college readiness. The AP School Honor Roll offers four levels of distinction: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. This is the first year that Science Hill has earned this recognition.
“This is a significant recognition for our school and our community,” Science Hill principal Dr. Josh Carter said. “This wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of our students, teachers and staff, along with the support from our Board of Education, counselors and administrators. At Science Hill, we strive to push students to be their best, academically, emotionally and socially, while assisting them on their journey to uncover their significance in their lives and the lives of others.”
Currently, Science Hill offers 27 AP classes for its students. Science Hill scored well in the three metrics, which include College Culture (55 percent, 297/544 programs in Tennessee), College Credit (38 percent, 208/544 programs in Tennessee) and College Optimization (21 percent, 112/544 programs in Tennessee). The College Credit was good enough for gold recognition, while the College Optimization was good enough for the highest recognition, platinum. However, to earn the honor, schools must meet or exceed the criteria for a given recognition level for all three metrics.
