“This honor demonstrates the commitment of our teachers to academic excellence,” said Dr. Suzette Lovely, Superintendent of Carlsbad Unified School District. “Our Board of Trustees has made the expansion of Advanced Placement classes a priority goal for the last several years, and our teachers and administrators have focused great efforts in this area. At Carlsbad Unified we believe that all students will succeed. We are extremely proud to achieve this honor.”
In 2013, more than 3,300 colleges and universities around the world received AP scores for college credit, advanced placement and/or consideration in the admission process, with many colleges and universities in the United States offering credit in one or more subjects for qualifying AP scores.
