Manchester Junior-Senior High School Honored for Advanced Placement Success
Manchester Junior-Senior High School was recently honored by the Indiana Department of Education and the College Board at an awards ceremony and reception at the Statehouse in Indianapolis. As one of only 34 Indiana high schools to meet the state goal of having 25% of the Class of 2012 take and pass an Advanced Placement Exam with a score of 3 or higher, Manchester was recognized for having achieved a 34% pass rate. A second award was given to Manchester for being one of the top ten schools in the state to achieve the greatest one year growth. The percentage of Manchester students with AP scores of 3 or higher grew from 17% in 2011 to 34.1% in 2012.
“We are honored to have received these awards for AP success. Our participation and success with Advanced Placement classes and scores have grown with emphasis on rigor and achievement by our AP teachers to better prepare students for college,” according to Principal Nancy Alspaugh. Representing Manchester Junior-Senior High School at the awards ceremony were Sally Krouse, MCS School Board President; Dr. Bill Reichhart, MCS Superintendent; and Nancy Alspaugh, MJSH Principal.
