The percentage of Delaware’s public high school graduates taking and passing college-level Advanced Placement classes rose considerably in recent years, according to new data from the College Board. Eighteen percent of the graduating class of 2014 passed at least one AP test with a score of 3 or better, up from 10.6 percent a decade earlier.
Three Delaware schools were honored by the U.S. Department of Education today for their dedication to the health and wellness of our environment.
