MHS Recognized as Level 1 AP Pacesetter School

MHS recognized as Level 1 Advanced Placement Pacesetter School

Congratulations to Marshfield High School for being recognized by the Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council (WAPAC) as a Pacesetter school in Advanced Placement.  Based on the below criteria Marshfield High School received a Level 1.

Level 1 % taking exams > 30% (school’s population) and % of scores 3 or above > 70%.

Level 2 % taking exams > 20% (school’s population) and % of scores 3 or above > 65%.
Level 3 % taking exams > 10% (school’s population) and % of scores 3 or above > 60%.

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. The data for the WAPAC award is readily available from WISEdash data released from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction at  WAPAC’s goal is to focus on increasing participation by recognizing Pacesetters or leaders in AP to encourage other districts to promote both access and excellence.  WAPAC is proud to announce this year’s Pacesetter Award schools at Level 1 increased by five schools from the previous year. This Pacesetter Award celebrates success of individual schools and is not a competition or comparison between schools.  For this reason no data comparing schools will be released.
