Affton Named to AP District Honor Roll

Affton School District is proud to announce that we have made the 10th Annual AP District Honor Roll. Affton is 1 of only 7 school districts in Missouri and 1 of only 250 districts nationally to make the list.

Other St. Louis-area school districts that made the list include Francis Howell, Lindbergh, Parkway, and Webster Groves. This is the second time Affton has received this honor and was previously included in the 5th Annual District AP Honor Roll. Only 1 other St. Louis County school district (Parkway) has made the list more than Affton and only 7 school districts in the county have ever achieved AP District Honor Roll distinction. Across the state of Missouri, there are only 24 public school districts (less than 5%) that have ever achieved AP District Honor Roll.

The AP District Honor Roll recognizes school districts committed to increasing access to Advanced Placement for underrepresented students while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher. AP District Honor Roll recipients are committed to expanding the availability of AP courses among prepared and motivated students of all backgrounds. Inclusion on the 10th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data, from 2017 to 2019, for the following criteria:

  • Increased participation/access to AP by at least 4% in large districts, at least 6% in medium districts, and at least 11% in small districts;
  • Increased or maintained percentage of American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students taking exams and increased or maintained the percentage of American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students scoring 3+ on at least one AP Exam; and
  • Improved performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2018 scoring a 3 or higher than those in 2016, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70% of its AP students are scoring a 3 or higher.

When these outcomes have been achieved among an AP student population in which 30% or more are underrepresented minority students (American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander) and/or 30% or more are low-income students (students who qualify for College Board’s AP fee reduction), a symbol has been affixed to the district name to highlight this work.
