Leonia High School Earns a Spot on The AP School Honor Roll
Congratulations to Leonia High School which was named a GOLD member on the 2023 AP School Honor Roll! The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP program is delivering results and broadening access for students. In addition, Leonia High School was recognized for an AP Access Award for providing all students the chance to participate in AP courses, including students of underrepresented populations and/or low income students.
Schools can earn the Honor Roll recognition annually based on their ability to increase their school’s college-going culture, to provide opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximize college readiness. The AP School Honor Roll offers four levels of distinction: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
Leonia High School had  68% of seniors who took at least one AP exam during high school, 49% of seniors scoring a three or higher on at least one AP exam, and 17% of seniors who took five or more AP exams!
Leonia High School offers 26 AP courses in a variety of subject areas such as Art, English, Math, Music, Science, Social Studies, and World Languages.  This year there are 43 AP sections being taught at Leonia High School by 23 teachers. Leonia High School is one of 126 high schools in New Jersey offering the AP Capstone program, which is a two year program including AP Seminar and AP Research.  Participating in AP Capstone can help students stand out to colleges, become independent thinkers, and develop key academic skills.   Rather than teaching subject-specific content, these courses develop students’ skills in research, analysis, evidence-based arguments, collaboration, writing, and presenting.
In the Spring of 2023, Leonia High School had three students that scored a 5 on their AP Computer Science Principles exam, earning every point possible.  This elite group of students were among only 459 students world-wide to score a 5 on the AP Computer Science Principles exam.  In addition, there were 109 Leonia High Schools students that earned AP Scholar status with an average score of 3.82 out of 5 on their AP exams.  This includes 39 AP Scholars, 21 AP Scholars with Honor, 49 AP Scholars with Distinction, and 1 AP International Diploma.
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.
