Both Oconee high schools honored for Advanced Placement excellence Watkinsville, Ga. – North Oconee High School and Oconee County High School were recognized yesterday by State School Superintendent Richard Woods for excellence in Advanced Placement performance. The Oconee schools were two of only 57 high schools in Georgia to be named AP Merit Schools. These schools have at least 20 percent of their students taking AP exams, and at least half of those exams scoring a 3 or higher. Advanced Placement classes and exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. These classes offer rigorous, college-level learning options to high school students. Students who receive a 3, 4 or 5 on AP exams may receive college credit. Each Oconee high school was also recognized as an AP STEM School and an AP STEM Achievement School. In order to receive these designations, schools must have students testing in at least two AP math courses and two AP science courses, and at least 40 percent of those exams scoring a 3 or higher. In addition, each school was named an AP Humanities School. For this recognition, a school must have students testing in at least one English language arts course, two social science courses, one fine arts course and one world language course.
