Winchester Schools See Increase in AP Class Enrollment
11 October 2018 News
Winchester Public Schools has seen a significant increase in AP class enrollment amongst its students.
Students who take AP exams and receive a score of 3 or higher on a scale of 1 through 5 have a high chance of receiving college credit. At a Monday Winchester School Board work session, Winchester Public Schools Director of Secondary Instruction Brian Wray revealed that there was a 49% increase in Handley High School’s AP student population from 2017 to 2018, and a 68% increase in AP exam participation. Of those who participated in exams, 53% scored high enough to possibly earn college credit.
Superintendent Jason Van Heukelum was quoted as saying that the school system is on a good trajectory, but that he’d like to see 95% of enrolled students take the AP test. School Board member Erica Truban also expressed a desire to see a better enrolled-versus-tested ratio, and School Board student representative Gina Alfred acknowledged that many students don’t take the AP test seriously.
