MANKATO — The Mankato school district has again been recognized for its progress in Advanced Placement classes with its fourth placement in a row on the AP District Honor Roll.
The district continues to expand its Advanced Placement offerings, including to minority students, while maintaining the percentage of students earning scores of three or higher. These tests are scored on a five-point scale, and most U.S. colleges grant credit for scores of three or above.
Since 2010, the number of the district’s students in Advanced Placement classes has risen from 277 to 892. And at least 70 percent of students continue to earn scores of three or higher.
Seven districts in Minnesota made the honor roll this year, and Mankato Area Public Schools is the only district in the state to make the honor roll for each of the four years it has been in existence.
