Syosset Central School District is proud to announce that the College Board is recognizing Syosset High School with a Gold distinction on the Advanced Placement Program Honor Roll.

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.

Syosset High School offers 31 AP courses. Seventy-eight percent of seniors took at least one AP exam during high school, 70% scored a three or higher on at least one exam, and 70% took five or more exams.

“We are so grateful for this honor – and that we are able to offer 31 Advanced Placement opportunities for our students to earn college credit while still in high school,” said Giovanni Durante, Syosset High School Principal.

“AP represents an opportunity for students to stand out to colleges, earn college credit and placement, and potentially boost their grade point averages,” said Trevor Packer, head of the AP program. “The schools have shown that they can expand access to these college-level courses and still drive high performance – they represent the best of our AP program.”
