Humble ISD named to College Board’s Annual AP District Honor Roll

The Humble Independent School District was recently named to College Board’s fifth Annual AP District Honor Roll.

The Honor Roll recognizes 547 school districts in the U.S. and Canada that have increased access to AP course work while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of three or higher on AP Exams.

Humble ISD is one of only 29 school districts in the state of Texas to make the honor roll. District’s chosen for the Annual AP District Honor Roll data show that they are successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are likely to benefit from rigorous AP course work.

The Advanced Placement program allows high school students to take college-level courses and exams that may result in earning college credit. Individual colleges and universities determine course credit, with scores of three to five being widely acknowledged by universities. AP courses are taught at the high school campus or online by high school teachers who have completed AP training.

“I am especially proud to share this good news because I have seen firsthand the value that AP courses add to students’ lives,” said Humble ISD Superintendent Dr. Guy Sconzo.

Each year the number of students enrolled in AP courses are increasing and creating more opportunities for students in Humble ISD to ensure college and career readiness.

AP is just one of several opportunities in Humble ISD for student’s to earn college credit while in high school. Humble ISD also offers International Baccalaureate, Dual Credit and Early College High School. The hard work, commitment and dedication of teachers and students make this success possible.
