Crestview High School has earned Bronze recognition from the College Board’s Advanced Placement Program.
- The honor roll distinction recognizes schools that have expanded access to AP courses while maintaining high levels of performance. More than 700 Crestview students are enrolled in the school’s 17 AP courses across 36 sections taught by 10 teachers.
In 2023, 41.84% of Crestview’s AP students scored a 3 or higher on AP exams, making them eligible to receive college credit, according to the Okaloosa County School District.
“Opening AP courses to all students gives them opportunities to earn college credit and maximize college readiness,” stated Superintendent Chambers. “This recognition is a testament to our hard-working students and the dedication of school staff and the school counselors, who encourage our students to challenge themselves academically and prepare them for the future.”
Crestview High Principal Victoria Hayden said the recognition reflects the school community’s commitment to supporting students.
- “Crestview High School is honored to receive this recognition, and it is the result of the unwavering dedication of our staff and families to support our students to believe in themselves and reach beyond expectations,” Hayden said.
The College Board’s AP program allows high school students to take college-level courses and potentially earn college credit by passing end-of-course exams. More than 1 million students took AP exams in 2022.
“AP represents an opportunity for students to stand out to colleges, earn college credit and placement, and potentially boost their grade point averages,” said Trevor Packer, head of the AP program. “The schools have shown that they can expand access to these college-level courses and still drive high performance – they represent the best of our AP program.”
