Milford High School Announced as Part of the College Board's 2023 AP School Honor Roll

Oct 6, 2023
Congratulations Milford HS - College Board's 2023 AP Honor Roll

The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools that have done outstanding work to welcome more students into AP courses and support them on the path to college success. According to the College Board, “Research shows students who take AP courses and exams are more likely to attend college and graduate on time. The students who enter four-year colleges with credit from AP accelerate their path to graduation and build confidence for college success. And even for those who don’t earn college credit, AP coursework provides early exposure to college-level work and contributes to a college-going school culture.”

Within the MHS Class of 2023:

  • 305 students, or 63%, took 1,237 AP courses
  • 46% scored a 3 or higher on at least one AP exam
  • 31% took 5 or more classes during their high school career, including at least one in 9th or 10th grade

MHS Principal Dr. Tyler Arnold said, “Milford has worked diligently to build its AP offerings and programs to meet the needs and interests of our students. The ability to earn college credit while in high school helps reduce the ever-increasing cost of attending college. Importantly, it also exposes students to advanced coursework and allows them to explore potential career interests. We are proud to achieve this designation and would like to thank our highly qualified MHS teachers, as well as our Administrators and the Board for their commitment to our students and their future as Eagles.”

Honor Roll Metrics:

  • College Culture: Percent of students in the graduating class who took an AP exam at any point in high school, regardless of score. To avoid pressure on students to take large numbers of APs, only 1 AP exam per student contributes to this indicator.
  • College Credit: Percent of students in the graduating class who scored 3B on any AP Exam in high school. To avoid pressure on students to take large numbers of APs, only 1 AP exam score of 3 or higher, per student, contributes to this indicator.
  • College Optimization: Percent of students in the graduating class who took 5 or more AP Exams in high school, where at least 1 exam was taken in 9th or 10th grade. Because research indicates that 6 or more APs do not improve college graduation rates beyond the optimal total of 5 such courses in high school, no exams beyond 5 per student contribute to this indicator. The Honor Roll also recognizes schools that encourage students earlier on their AP journeys so as not to overload them with AP courses their junior and senior years.
