North Quincy High School was one of 26 high schools recognized at yesterday’s AP Access Awards at the Massachusetts State House. This annual recognition program by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education acknowledges high schools for expanding access to Advanced Placement (AP) courses and improving the performance of underrepresented students on AP exams.

Criteria for the award include having at least 40 Black/African American and Latino/Hispanic examinees in 2022 OR 40 low-income examinees AND an overall 5-year increase of at least 30% in these examinees from 2017 to 2022. NQHS far exceeded the criteria and will be administering over 750 AP exams next month.

The Boston Globe ran a great story about Massachusetts’ nation-leading participation and achievement in Advanced Placement programming; if you look closely, you’ll spy a few NQHS students in the lead photo!

Congratulations to NQHS staff and students for this huge accomplishment!
