AP School Honor Roll

SCITUATE, R.I., OCTOBER 26, 2023 – On October 2, Scituate High School received notice from the College Board that the high school has been named to the Advanced Placement Program School Honor Roll earning Bronze distinction. SHS earned this recognition through their commitment to maximize college readiness, by increasing college-going culture and providing opportunities for students to earn college credit.

 “Scituate High School is committed to providing students with educational opportunities that prepare them for future success,” said SHS Principal Michael Hassell. “We offer six AP courses in several areas of study, including Computer Science, United States Government, Calculus, and English. These courses benefit students by offering them a rigorous academic environment that helps to develop critical thinking and analytical skills. Students and families are encouraged to talk with our guidance department to explore AP course options.”

 Each year, the AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP programs are delivering results and broadening college access to students. The Bronze distinction recognizes that 45% of SHS students who graduated in 2023 took at least one AP exam and more than half of the students who completed exams received scores that could earn them college credit.

 “Students in 10th or 11th grade can enroll in an AP course at SHS,” said School Guidance Counselor Daniel Casey. “We are proud of our students for challenging themselves by enrolling in these college-level courses.”
