Two Chippewa County high schools have increased the number of students participating and scoring well in Advanced Placement (AP) classes—enough that both scored both a spot on the yearly AP District Honor Roll.

Since 2015, both the Chippewa Falls Senior High School and Cadott Junior/Senior High School had more students taking AP courses overall—and also increased or maintained higher scores in those classes.

The honor roll includes 447 school districts spanning the U.S. and Canada. A total of 25 Wisconsin school districts received the honor.

AP courses can earn high school students college credit and help them improve their likelihood of college admission, the Chippewa Falls School District said Wednesday.

“Surely, this gives our students a leg-up when they graduate and transition to post-secondary work,” said Chippewa Falls district Superintendent Dr. Heidi Taylor-Eliopoulos.

Cadott district interim superintendent Randy Rosburg also congratulated his students’ achievement. “...Cadott High School is pushing for every student to have the opportunity at AP or transcripted courses during their high school career while ensuring these high outcomes are met and this award shows the extent of our success in these efforts,” he said.

Cadott Junior/Senior High School is offering nine AP courses over the 2017-18 school year.
