GUHSD Named National AP District of the Year

College Board Names GUHSD National AP District of the Year
December 2012- The Glendale Union High School District has been named the nation's Advanced Placement District of the Year by the College Board. GUHSD earned this award for being the national leader, among medium-sized school districts, in expanding AP courses and improving our AP Exam scores.

In November, GUHSD earned a spot on the College Board's Annual AP District Honor Roll, along with 539 other schools across the US and Canada. From this elite list, GUHSD was chosen as the AP District of the Year.

From 2009 to 2012, GUHSD:
  • Increased student participation in AP by 15 percent annually;
  • Increased the percentage of AP students earning a 3 or above on at least one AP Exam by 14 percent annually, with 51% of AP students scoring 3 or above in 2012; and
  • Increased the percentage of traditionally underserved minority AP students earning 3 or above on at least one AP Exam by 21 percent annually, an increase of 142 students last year.

This national recognition is a sure indicator that GUHSD is helping more students learn at a higher level, to ensure they are prepared for college and careers.

GUHSD will be formally recognized for this honor at an award ceremony on Wednesday, January 16th.
