BCHS 1 of 6 KY Schools Named on National AP Honor Roll

Last week, Boyle County High School (BCHS) received a very prestigious recognition.  The College Board, which is the developer and the administrator of Advanced Placement (AP) exams and the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), recognizes the top districts in the United States and Canada with regards to success on the AP exam each year. Success is defined by the College Board as the ability of a school district to get more students to take AP classes and AP exams and, at the same time, aggressively increase the number of students passing the exams.  Last year, BCHS had 240 AP exams taken and an AP pass rate of 75%.  Below you can find a chart showing how aggressively BCHS has increased participation and pass rate since 2008.  Superintendent Mike Lafavers was thrilled by this recent recognition. “The fact that more and more BCHS students are being successful on AP exams speaks to the intentional structures the school has put in place to guarantee college success for students.  Furthermore, the preparation Boyle County students receive in elementary school (Junction City, Perryville and Woodlawn) and middle school (Boyle County Middle) is as good as any in the nation.” said LaFavers.   The Kentucky Department of Education press release is attached and provides more details.
