Massachusetts Tops on Advanced Placement Exams:

For the first time, Massachusetts is the top state in the nation in terms of the percentage of the class of 2016 that scored a 3 or higher on an Advanced Placement exam, the College Board announced this week. In addition, Massachusetts had the nation's highest five- and ten-year growth in the percentage of graduates who scored a 3 or higher. This accomplishment reflects both strong participation – approximately 44.1 percent of Massachusetts' class of 2016 took at least one AP exam while they were in high school – and frequent success, with 31 percent of the overall class scoring 3 or higher out of a possible 5 on an AP exam.

The Department would like to thank Mass Insight Education for their work to expand access to AP courses and congratulate all of the educators and students whose work made these impressive results possible!
