Appleton East High School was recognized as a Level 3 Advanced Placement Pacesetter School for impressive student AP access and excellence in AP exam scores in the State of Wisconsin during the 2015-16 school year.
This honor comes from the Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council (WAPAC). The impetus of this recognition is to recognize access and excellence regarding Advanced Placement. Pacesetter schools have provided impressive student access to AP courses and posted excellent AP exam results.
The Pacesetter Award is unique to Wisconsin and emerged from WAPAC members who felt that many outstanding school districts in our state lacked recognition for AP excellence. In particular, WAPAC was interested in highlighting districts that are seldom recognized for their excellence in AP.
Level 3: % taking exams > 10% (school’s population) and % of scores 3 or above > 60%.
