Buford City Schools has done it again! They not only increased the number of students taking an Advanced Placement (AP) course, but the students themselves have demonstrated their heightened knowledge through improved performance on their final AP exam(s)!

Advanced Placement End of Course testing has certain high standing criteria which earns a score of 1 to 5 (1 being the lowest score, 3 a passing score, and 5 an excelling score), meaning Buford had an overall growth of students from 2016 to 2018 that scored a 3 or higher on at least one AP exam.

According to the CollegeBoard webpage, only four other schools in Georgia received the same honor as Buford this year: Bremen City Schools, Clarke County School District, Forsyth County Schools, and Marietta City Schools. Out of the total 373 schools awarded the title of “AP District Honor Roll” throughout the country, those five, in particular, met the requirements in our state.

This is no easy feat, and both the students’ intelligence and readiness for college reflects through their higher AP exam scores.  The award is also a direct reflection of the caliber of staff at Buford. A staff that is invested in their students’ success.

Buford City Schools has achieved this title a total of three times! With their triple-A excellence standards, no doubt Buford City Schools will receive even more honors like this in years to come!
