FCS Named to the Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Roll

For the sixth year, Forsyth County Schools was named by College Board to the Annual AP District Honor Roll. Four other school districts received this distinction in Georgia; 373 school districts in the U.S. and Canada were honored. 

The Annual AP District Honor Roll recognizes districts that have increased access to AP for underrepresented students while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning AP exam scores of 3 or higher.

"Our teachers and counselors know the importance of having motivated and prepared students experience college-level academic courses while in high school," shared FCS Superintendent Jeff Bearden. "We have worked hard to expand AP opportunities for more students, and look forward to continuing an offering that is a win-win not only for students, but their parents as well."

Those districts from Georgia included: 

  • Bremen City Schools
  • Buford City Schools
  • Clarke County Schools
  • Forsyth County Schools
  • Marietta City Schools​

Additionally, all FC high schools were named 21 AP Merit Schools. There were only 71 high schools named in the state. AP Merit Schools are schools with at least 20% of the total student population taking AP exams and at least 50% of all AP exams earning scored of 3 or higher.
