Pennridge earns spot on AP Honor Roll


Pennridge High School is among only 373 schools in North America (U.S. and Canada) honored by the College Board with placement on its ninth annual AP District Honor Roll.

To be included on the ninth annual Honor Roll, Pennridge had to, since 2016, increase the number of students participating in Advanced Placement classes while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher.

In Pennsylvania, only 46 high schools earned the distinction. Closer to home, Pennridge was among four Bucks County School high schools to join the Honor Roll this year.

In May 2018, 355 Pennridge students, a 28 percent increase over the previous year, took a total of 645 AP exams in 21 subjects. Eighty-two percent of those who took the test scored a 3 or higher. Their average score was 3.49 on a 5-point scale.

In addition to two National AP Scholars, the College Board awarded AP Scholar with Distinction status to 36 Pennridge students (average score of 4.16), AP Scholar with Honor status to 27 students (average score of 3.81) and AP Scholar status to 48 students (average score of 3.81).
