Dalton High School has broken its own record. This year, the school had 67 Advanced Scholars—the most in the school’s history. Last year, the school had 61 AP Scholars, a record number for the school at that time.

For the 2014 year, Dalton has 32 students who are currently students at the school, and the other 35 scholars graduated in May of this year.

Dalton High assistant principal Mona Howell said she is excited that the AP Program continues to grow and that the students continue to be successful in the program.

“The students who take our AP courses are highly motivated and welcome the academic challenge the program provides,” said Ms. Howell. “We are very pleased that more students are seeing the benefit of taking AP classes. Students recognize that the rigor of an AP class prepares them to be successful at the college level.”

To be an AP Scholar, students must get a score of three or higher on AP exams.

Ms. Howell said that taking 15 AP courses increases the chances of becoming a Scholar since there are more courses to choose from.

The AP Scholars will be honored by having their photos displayed in the lobby at DHS, and also by receiving a green AP Scholar cord to wear at graduation.
