RHS Recognized As A Leader in Equitable Access To Advanced Coursework
REVERE, MA – Acting Mayor Patrick M. Keefe Jr. is proud to announce that College Board named Revere High School to the Advanced Placement® Program (AP) School Honor Roll, earning Bronze distinction. The AP® School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP programs are delivering results for students while broadening access. Schools can earn this recognition annually based on criteria that reflect a commitment to increasing college-going culture, providing opportunities for students to earn college credit, and maximizing college readiness.
“We are immensely proud to receive the Bronze Distinction on the 2023 AP School Honor Roll. These achievements are a testament to the dedication of our students, teachers, and staff who continuously strive for excellence in education,” said Acting Mayor Patrick Keefe. “Our commitment to fostering a college-going culture and providing equitable access to AP coursework remains unwavering. We firmly believe in every student’s potential for success, and we are committed to helping them achieve it here in Revere.”
At Revere High, 48% of students in the graduating class took at least one AP Course, and 27% of students in the graduating class scored 3+ on an AP Exam, earning college credit. Together with students who earned college credit through Dual Enrollment classes, that brings the total to 77% of the class of 2023 leaving high school with at least three college credits completed. Amazingly, 15% of the class of 2023 leaves with at least 15 college credits completed; saving the full cost on a semester of college tuition.
In addition to achieving Bronze Distinction on the AP School Honor Roll, Revere High School has also received the 2023 AP Access Award. This award acknowledges the school’s steadfast commitment to ensuring that AP coursework is accessible to all students, regardless of their backgrounds or circumstances. The school firmly believes that every student deserves the opportunity to pursue advanced coursework and strives to make this vision a reality.
“Revere High School’s honor of the Bronze Distinction and AP Access Award is a remarkable achievement that reflects the exceptional education our students receive,” said Superintendent Dr. Dianne Kelly. “We are proud of the Revere Public School’s steadfast commitment to academic excellence and equal access to educational opportunities. These achievements will not only benefit Revere today but also play a crucial role in fostering the next generation of leaders for a brighter future.”
