State Superintendent Richard Woods Monday named 204 Advanced Placement STEM Schools, 60 in metro Atlanta.
The honor recognizes schools that test students in at least two AP math courses and two AP science courses.
Gwinnett County Schools led the state with 20 AP STEM Schools. There were five more AP STEM Schools than last year.
“STEM” is one of six categories of AP Honor Schools. Woods named 674 AP Honor Schools this year, 52 more than last year.
“The number of our schools and students succeeding in the college-level learning offered by Advanced Placement continues to increase,” Woods said. “It is my pleasure to recognize these schools – and, by extension, their students, teachers, and staff – for the excellent work being done to expand opportunity to all students.”
