North Atlanta is Recognized as an AP Honor Roll School

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 AP School Honor Roll offers four levels of distinction: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. 

Congratulations to North Atlanta High School which has been named to the 2023 AP School Honor Roll! North Atlanta High School is a Silver member of the Honor Roll! North Atlanta High School had 56% of seniors who took at least one AP exam during high school, 42% of seniors scoring a three or higher on at least one AP exam, and 12% of seniors who took five or more AP exams! 

College Board’s Advanced Placement® Program (AP®) enables students to pursue college-level studies—with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both—while still in high school. Through AP courses in 38 subjects, each culminating in a challenging exam, students learn to think critically, construct solid arguments, and see many sides of an issue—skills that prepare them for college and beyond. Taking AP courses demonstrates to college admissions officers that students have sought the most challenging curriculum available to them, and research indicates that students who score a 3 or higher on an AP Exam typically experience greater academic success in college and are more likely to earn a college degree than non-AP students.
