The 2016 Iowa AP Index has been released, and for the eighth straight year, George Washington High School in Cedar Rapids is the Top School in AP participation. The Index, calculated using the previous year’s AP exam and graduation data, recognizes the Top 50 schools in Iowa for their commitment to offering advanced learning opportunities through the College Board’s Advanced Placement program.
The Index reflects one facet of service delivery, rather than overall quality. However, “schools that make [advanced learning] opportunities available to the students are clearly committed to the success of the entire student body,” said Dr. Susan Assouline, director of the Belin-Blank Center.
