Statewide, there are 424 schools that are receiving the honor for their Advanced Placement programs.
Henry W. Grady High School was recognized as an AP Merit School, a school with at least 20% of the student population taking AP exams and at least 50% of all AP exams earning scores of three (3) or higher.
AP tests are scored 1-5. If students score a 3 and above, the grade earned in the AP class counts for college credit.
