    The Escondido Union High School District (EUHSD) is proud to be recognized in the 5th Annual AP District Honor Roll by The College Board as a school district that improved in the rate at which students earned scores of 3 or higher on an AP exam, while also increasing access to Advanced Placement courses for a broader number of students.

    Being included in the honor roll is based on several criteria and through the analysis of data from the last three years of AP scores. The criteria for being included consists of: Increased participation/access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts, and at least 11 percent in small districts; Increased or maintained the percentage of exams taken by African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students, and; Improved performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2014 scoring a 3 or higher to those in 2012, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70 percent of its AP students are scoring a 3 or higher.

    EUHSD is one of 547 school districts in the US and Canada being recognized for in the AP District Honor Roll, and one of the 4 districts in San Diego county to be recognized. EUHSD is the only school district in San Diego County that is recognized as also having a student population consisting of 30% percent or more of underrepresented minority students (Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian/Alaska Native) as well as 30 percent or more low-income students (students who qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch). This recognition truly portrays the Escondido High School District’s desire to provide all of the diverse Escondido Community with a quality education.
