February 12--  Two area high schools are among 230 in the state which are Advanced Placement Honor Schools, according to the Georgia Department of Education.

Vidalia High School and Swainsboro High School are two of the 44 high schools in Georgia identified as Advanced Placement Challenge Schools.  These are schools with less than 900 students with students testing in the four core areas of English, math, science and social studies.

“It’s essential that we offer a robust set of opportunities to Georgia students, and Advanced Placement is an important part of that,” said State School Superintendent Richard Woods. “I congratulate the educators and leaders who worked to create strong AP programs in these 230 Georgia schools, ultimately connecting students with high-level coursework and the opportunity to gain college credit.” 

AP exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP courses are one of several ways Georgia students can access college-level learning at the high-school level; students who receive a 3, 4, or 5 on an AP exam may receive college credit.
