Westonka is one of only eleven school districts in Minnesota named to the College Board’s 2012 AP® District Honor Roll.
This recognition is given to school districts that simultaneously increased access to AP courses while maintaining or improving the rate at which their AP students earned scores of 3 or higher on an AP exam, according to the College Board.
“This recognition is testament to our students and families wanting more rigorous courses and our high school staff’s commitment to supporting all of our students and their academic work in these courses,” said Westonka Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning Mark Femrite. “I cannot be more proud of our students and staff. This honor is another indication of the high school’s commitment to ensuring that all MWHS students are college and career ready.”
Between 2007 and 2012, Mound Westonka High School has increased the number of students taking at least one AP exam from 124 students to 183 students while the number of total exams taken has increased from 165 exams to 278 exams. In addition, the percent of students earning a score of 3 or higher (typically the minimum score to earn college credit) has risen from 56% to 71%.
