Academic congrats

Congratulations to the Montoursville Area School District. Special congratulations to the East Lycoming Area School District.

Both have been named to the 2018 Advanced Placement District Honor Roll.

The AP curriculum, administered by The College Board, consists of standardized high school courses that are roughly equivalent to undergraduate college courses.

After completing an AP course, students can take the AP exam in that subject, which can earn them credit and accelerated placement in college.

The Honor Roll recognition is based on course enrollment, exam participation and exam results. Only 3 percent of eligible school districts in the U.S. and Canada are selected for Honor Roll status.

Montoursville and East Lycoming join Jersey Shore (2015) and Williamsport (2011) among Lycoming County school districts to have been recognized in recent years.

East Lycoming (2015) is the only repeat recipient.

Having been born and raised in Lycoming County, it is nice to learn of good things happening in the area. Congratulations to all four school districts.
