Algonquin can now add another award to its resume. At last night’s Regional School Committee meeting, Superintendent Charles Gobron announced the school recently had been honored by the College Board for it’s college-level AP courses. It’s an honor only 388 districts across the country received.
Here’s a snippet of the press release. You can read the entire statement here.
Northborough-Southborough Regional 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, Algonquin Regional High School has increased the number of students participating in AP from 234 in 2008 to 291 in 2010, while improving the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher, the score typically needed to earn college credit, from 88 percent in 2008 to 93 percent in 2010.
“Algonquin Regional High School continues to provide excellent opportunities for all students, and we are pleased that the high school is being recognized for the breadth and depth of our Advanced Placement courses. This success is due, not only to the hard work of our students, faculty, administration, and staff, but also to the support and encouragement of parents and community members in Northborough and Southborough,” said Charles E. Gobron, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools for the Northborough-Southborough Public Schools.
Nineteen other districts in Massachusetts received the honor, including Shrewsbury, Harvard, and Dover/Sherborn, among others. For more information and a complete list of honorees, visit the College Board website.
