Iowa City — Regina High School has been named to the Advanced Placement Program (AP) School Honor Roll, earning PLATINUM distinction.
The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP programs are delivering results for students while broadening access. Schools can earn this recognition annually based on criteria that reflect a commitment to increasing college-going culture, providing opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximizing college readiness.
The College Board’s AP program enables students to pursue college-level studies — with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both — while still in high school.
Last year, Regina seniors reported taking at least one AP exam during high school, with 60.9% scoring a three or higher on at least one AP exam. Nearly 49% of seniors took five or more AP exams during their high school years. The Catholic school currently offers 16 AP courses taught by seven teachers.
“We are proud of the outstanding work of Regina students and the commitment and support provided by our teachers,” said Angela Olson, head of school.
