JACKSON TWP — The Seneca Valley School District is just one of 539 districts nationwide to be on the Advanced Placement District Honor Roll.
The list is compiled by the College Board, the organization that oversees AP courses that allow students to earn college credits while still in high school.
To be placed on the national list, Seneca Valley had to be recognized for both increasing student access to AP courses while simultaneously raising the test scores of students already enrolled in AP classes.
Only 39 schools in Pennsylvania achieved both standards for being named to the national honor roll.
In May, more than 2.1 million students at more than 18,000 schools took the AP exams.
More than 90 percent of colleges and universities offer college credit or advanced placement to high school students who score a 3 or better on the AP exams.
