Francis Howell has been honored by the College Board with placement on the 9th Annual AP ® District Honor Roll. FHSD is one of only five school districts in Missouri and one of only 363 in North America to achieve this distinction.
To be included on the 9th Annual Honor Roll, the District had to increase the number of students participating in Advanced Placement classes while also maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on an AP Exam. Reaching these goals indicates that the Francis Howell School District is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for Advanced Placement. This is the fifth time that FHSD has been named to the prestigious list.
“We are always looking for ways to identify more students to take rigorous courses, and being recognized by the College Board is a testament to our steady increase in AP offerings and student achievement,” said FHSD Superintendent Dr. Mary Hendricks-Harris. “Student success is always our primary focus, and our continuing efforts to expand the AP program will help to ensure that students are college and career ready when they graduate.”
