Fairland High earns spot on AP honors list

ROME TOWNSHIP — Fairland High School has been honored by the College Board by being placed on the annual Advanced Placement District Honor Roll.

The school was one of 425 named to the list out of the nation’s more than 26,000 high schools, principal Chad Belville said.

“It’s a pretty big feather in our cap,” he said. “We’re proud of it.”

Belville said the placement on the list was due to high test scores and the growth in the school’s advanced placement program.

To be included in the honor roll, schools had to, since 2013, increase the number of students taking part in AP while also increasing or maintaining the number of students earning exam scores of 3 or higher.
