The Manhasset Public Schools is proud to announce that Manhasset Secondary School has earned platinum recognition on College Board’s 2023 Advanced Placement School Honor Roll. Out of 4,570 schools, Manhasset Secondary School is among 886 schools to receive platinum, the highest level of distinction that a school can receive.
According to College Board, “the AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools that have done outstanding work to welcome more students into AP courses and support them on the path to college success.” AP courses prepare high school students for the future with college-level work. Twenty nine AP courses are offered at Manhasset Secondary School to fit all student interests.
To be selected for the AP School Honor Roll, College Board looks at a school’s college culture (percent of students in the graduating class who took an AP exam), college credit (percent of students in the graduating class who scored 3 or higher on any AP exam) and college optimization (percent of students in the graduating class who took five or more AP exams, where at least one exam was taken in ninth or 10th grade).
