According to the College Board AP Report to the Nation, ensuring
that all academically-prepared high school students have access to rigorous
course work that will prepare them to succeed in college is critical for the
United States to remain competitive in a global economy – particularly in
science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-related disciplines.
The College Board has announced results from The 9th Annual AP® Report to the Nation, highlighting the progress of America's public high schools in preparing students for college-level course work.
Research shows that students who succeed on AP Exams during high school usually experience greater academic success in college, save money on college tuition and are more likely to earn a college degree than their peers.
