Newton, Alcovy named AP honor schools

Alcovy and Newton High Schools have been named 2014 Advanced Placement Honor Schools.

The announcement came Monday in a release from the Newton County School System. Alcovy and Newton were named both 2014 AP STEM Schools and 2014 Access and Support Schools by Georgia School Superintendent Dr. John D. Barge.

Advanced Placement (AP) classes and exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP classes offer rigorous college-level learning options to students in high school. Students who receive a 3, 4 or 5 on AP exams may receive college credit.

"Over the last several years, our high school leaders and teachers have worked diligently to provide more students with access to Advanced Placement courses; their hard work and dedication has paid off in many ways," said Newton County School Superintendent Samantha Fuhrey.

"Students taking Advanced Placement courses are direct beneficiaries of this effort as many colleges and universities translate the success on Advanced Placement exams as college credit, and they are well-prepared to participate in the workforce should that be their choice after high school. These most recent honors further demonstrate our commitment to excellence.
