Mason AP Honor Roll

     The Mason City school district was recently honored by being named a College Board AP Honor Roll Recipient. 477 districts across both the US and Canada received this award, and Mason is one of 38 Ohio districts to have been named a Recipient. This is the fourth year the College Board named districts on their outstanding AP participation, and the fourth year the Mason district has qualified. According to the College Board website, in order to be a recipient a district must have: an increased participation in AP classes by at least four percent for large districts, increased AP exam participation by variety of minority races within the district, and increased AP exam scores for the district overall.
    Last year, 92% of Mason students who took an AP exam scored a 3 or higher on the exam, being the best Mason has ever done on AP exams. These students received college credit for the AP classes they took, as AP exams are scored out of 5.  The total number of AP students who chose to take the AP exams for last school year was 801, and total number of exams taken was 1, 471, also the highest ever for Mason. Congratulations to the hard-working students and teachers, and we thank the district for their continued support.
