MSAD 11 Placed on the College Board’s 5th Annual AP® District Honor Roll

MSAD 11 Placed on the College Board’s 5th Annual AP® District Honor Roll for Significant Gains in Student Access and Success

A Record 547 School Districts Across the Nation Are Honored

Gardiner, Maine — MSAD 11 is one of 547 school districts in the U.S. and Canada and one of seven school districts in Maine being honored by the College Board with placement on the 5th Annual AP® District Honor Roll for increasing access to AP course work while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. 2014 is a milestone year for the AP District Honor Roll, and more districts are achieving this objective than ever before. Reaching these goals indicates that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for the opportunity of AP. Since 2012, MSAD 11 has increased the number of students participating in AP while improving the number of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher

“This recognition is the result of incredibly hardworking, dedicated teachers and administrators at Gardiner Area High School, working collaboratively with an amazing student body to achieve high academic success. The MSAD 11 community is proud of all they have accomplished!” said Pat Hopkins, MSAD 11 Superintendent of Schools.

“The devoted teachers and administrators in this district are delivering an undeniable benefit to their students: opportunity. When coupled with a student’s hard work, such opportunities can have myriad outcomes, whether building confidence, learning to craft effective arguments, earning credit for college, or persisting to graduate from college on time.” said Trevor Packer, the College Board’s senior vice president of AP and Instruction. “We applaud your conviction that a more diverse population of students is ready for the sort of rigor that will prepare them for success in college.”

Class of 2015 Comp Day

Dear Parents and Guardians,
As part of the state-wide SAT testing that all grade 11 students have been expected to participate in for the past several years, we have offered various incentives to recognize the effort that students put into this very strenuous assessment. I am happy to announce that our senior class’ participation rate was 99.2%! This is 2.6% higher than the state average and 4.2% higher than what was required by the Maine Department Of Education. As a result, all students in this year’s senior class have earned a day off this Friday, November 7 to compensate for the time they spent taking the SAT on Saturday, May 3, 2014. Seniors who choose to attend school on this day are welcome to do so. All seniors who take Friday off will have their absence coded as ACT so that it will not count against them. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding this event.
