Westfield-Washington Schools has been selected for the 7th Annual AP Honor Roll.

We are thrilled to share the news that Westfield-Washington Schools is one of 433 districts across the United States and Canada that have been selected for the 7th Annual AP Honor Roll. This is the third time we have received this honor and the second year in a row (2012, 2015, 2016).

We have been included on the AP Honor Roll because WHS has simultaneously increased access to Advanced Placement coursework while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. This goes against the expectation that more student access automatically results in a decline in the percentage of passed AP exams.

This honor is earned only through the dedication of all our teachers and their belief that rigorous academic preparation is for ALL students.
