Shrewsbury on AP Honor Roll.
Since 2009, Shrewsbury Public Schools increased the number of students participating in AP from 236 to 272, while having 93 percent of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher in 2011, far surpassing the Honor Roll's minimum qualifying threshold of 70 percent. The majority of U.S. colleges and universities grant college credit or advanced placement for a score of 3 or above on AP exams.
Shrewsbury Superintendent of Schools Joseph Sawyer said, "I am pleased that our district has again received this honor from the College Board. I congratulate the students and teachers in our Advanced Placement classes who performed at such a high level, as well as all of the educators and parents who have supported our students throughout their schooling so that they would be prepared for advanced work in high school.
Shrewsbury is one of only 113 districts in the U.S. and Canada honored both of the two years of the Honor Roll's existence.
