Between 2008 and 2010, participation in the Advanced Placement program grew by 28% in Davie County. As a result, the College Board has named Davie County Schools to the AP Achievement List for significant gains in Advanced Placement access and student performance!
Dr. Bill Steed, Superintendent of Davie County Schools said, “It is an honor to be recognized by the College Board. The students and staff of Davie County Schools have worked hard to make this happen and should feel proud of this accomplishment.”
The AP Achievement List is made up of school districts that are simultaneously expanding opportunity and improving performance.
Davie County “Defying Expectations”
“Participation in college-level AP courses can level the playing field for underserved students, give them the confidence needed to succeed in college, and raise standards and performance in key subjects like science and math,” said College Board President Gaston Caperton. “The AP Achievement List districts are defying expectations by expanding access while enabling their students to maintain or improve their AP Exam scores.”
