Clarke County high schools earn AP recognitions

Clarke County School District

Cedar Shoals and Clarke Central High Schools are among 273 Georgia high schools named AP Honor Schools by State School Superintendent Richard Woods.

Both Clarke Central and Cedar Shoals were named AP STEM schools, a recognition for schools which have at least five students testing in at least four AP STEM courses, like biology, calculus, or physics.

Cedar Shoals was also named an AP STEM Achievement School, for having at least 50% of its AP STEM students score a 3 or above on the test.

Finally, both high schools were named AP Access and Support Schools. Schools with that distinction have at least 30% minority representation among AP test takers and by having at least 30% of all test takers earning a score of 3 or higher.
