Barrington 220 Named to College Board’s AP Honor Roll

The Barrington 220 School District is one of just 373 school districts nationwide to earn a spot on the College Board’s 9th Annual Advanced Placement District Honor Roll.

To be included on the Honor Roll, from 2016-2018 Barrington 220 had to increase the number of students participating in AP courses, while also increasing or maintaining the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher.

In 2018, Barrington High School administered 2,450 AP tests, in 35 different AP subjects, to 1,158 students. BHS students scored a 3 or higher on 87% of the total tests administered. Earning a score of 3 or higher earns students college credit, while still in high school.

Among BHS juniors and seniors, AP course enrollment increased from 65% in 2015 to 71% in 2018.

“We’re very proud to provide rigorous opportunities for our students to gain the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in college or a career of their choice,” says Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Brian Harris. “This recognition reflects the world class education our students receive from the time they enter Barrington 220 in pre-k or kindergarten, to the time they graduate from Barrington High School.”

The College Board is a non-profit that connects students to college success and opportunity through the Advanced Placement Program, the SAT, Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy, BigFuture, and more. Learn more at CollegeBoard.org.

Formed in 1973, Barrington Community Unit School District 220 educates over 9,000 students at one high school, two middle schools (grades 6-8), eight elementary schools, and one early childhood center. District 220 encompasses 72 square miles in 4 counties and covers 12 villages: all of Barrington, Lake Barrington, Tower Lakes; and portions of Barrington Hills, Carpentersville, Deer Park, Fox River Grove, Port Barrington, Hoffman Estates, Inverness, North Barrington, and South Barrington.
