A Record 547 School Districts across the Nation are Honored
Lincoln County High School and the Lincoln County Board of Education became one of only 547 school districts in the U.S. and Canada honored by the College Board with placement on the 5th Annual Advanced Placement ® (AP) District Honor Roll. To be elligible for this award, high schools must have increased access to AP course work while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. Reaching these goals indicates that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for the rigor of AP classes. Since 2012, Lincoln County High School has increased the number of students participating in AP courses while improving the number of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher.
According to Superintendent Karen Hatter, “The recognition of the school's effort to increase the rigor of coursework at Lincoln County High School is evidence of the commitment to high expectations by the school staff, as well as the students' response to the challenge set forth in AP classes.”
