Blind Brook Is On A Roll

Blind Brook was named to the 2023 Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Roll! For those who do not know, the AP Honor Roll is a recognition program that shows significant achievements for AP programs. The AP School Honor Roll offers four placements: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Blind Brook offers many AP classes, which helps expand opportunities for college credits. Many students here find themselves immersed in different forms of hands-on learning, which is at their disposal through these Advanced Placement courses. Blind Brook High School had the privilege of being named on the AP Honor Roll this year, an achievement that represents our rigorous course offerings. 

There are strict requirements to be placed on an Honor Roll, which shows Blind Brook students’ educational ardor. For a school to be placed on the Honor Roll, students must receive an average score of at least 3.25 on all of their taken AP exams or a 3 or higher on four or more of their AP Exams, thus showing its difficulty to achieve. Blind Brook had at least 83% of seniors who took at least one AP exam in high school, 71% of seniors who scored a 3 or higher on at least one AP exam, and 2% of seniors at Blind Brook who took 5 or more AP exams. These statistics represent the enduring effort made by our students, which is nurtured by our encouraging environment. Only a handful of eligible schools received the bronze AP Honor Roll recognition this year, and the recipients of the award held great variety. Schools can be private, public, or charter schools. The range of grade size goes from 30 students per grade to thousands of students per grade. Schools can be in rural or urban areas, be specialized schools, or have general programs. The Honor Roll each school placed on the Honor Roll is committed to expanding the opportunities for their students. By offering AP classes in high school, the readiness rate of students going to college has heavily increased. A high school superintendent, Dr. Monifa B. McKnight, expresses, “This is a wonderful recognition of staff in all of our high schools working hard to prioritize rigorous learning, including in Advanced Placement and other challenging courses available to our students.” Dr. Mckinight explains that the idea of the AP Honor Roll is effective in recognizing students for their well-earned academic accomplishments. Blind Brook is honored to be placed on the AP Honor Roll and will continue to offer AP classes.
