Rome High was named an AP STEM School and an AP STEM Achievement School.
Armuchee High, Coosa High, Model High and Pepperell High were honored as AP Challenge Schools, while Pepperell High also made the honors list for AP STEM Schools.
AP STEM Schools include those with students testing in at least two AP math courses and two AP science courses. AP STEM Achievement Schools include those with students testing in at least two AP math courses and two AP science courses — and at least 40 percent of the test-takers earning scores of three or higher.
The AP Challenge honor is given to schools with 900 or fewer students that have students testing in the four core areas of English, math, social studies and science.
The move to a more extensive offering of advanced courses for students in Floyd County Schools began with the introduction of the Honors College Prep program in the fall of 2002.
The Honors College Prep program is available at all four Floyd County high schools.
“Offering these advanced classes is not always easy in small community schools such as ours, but we feel it is necessary to the success of our graduates,” stated David Johnson, chairman of the Floyd County Board of Education. “Our board has made a commitment to provide the very best educational opportunities for our children.”
