16 DeKalb schools make AP honor roll

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- Sixteen of DeKalb County's 22 public high schools have been named to a statewide Advanced Placement honor roll.

The College Board's AP program gives high school students the opportunity to take college-level courses. At the end of the school year, the students are tested on their knowledge. AP exams earn scores of 1 through 5; receiving a 3, 4 or 5 could result in college credit.

"DeKalb students are succeeding in college-level learning," DeKalb County School District Superintendent Michael Thurmond said. "With more than 70 percent of our high schools on the AP honor roll, we are proud of the district's overall success. Our goal is to be 100 percent."
