It’s important to note that while AP Exams are validmeasures of students’ content mastery of college-level studies inspecific academic disciplines, AP results should never be used asthe sole measure for gauging educational excellence and equity.Because reliable demographic data for nonpublic schools are notavailable for all states, this report represents public school studentsonly. Additionally, this report looks at students’ entire experiencewith AP — tracking exams taken by graduates throughout their highschool careers — as opposed to reporting exam results from aparticular calendar year.Additional data are available at apreport.collegeboard.org.Note: Throughout this report, public high school graduates represent projectionssupplied in Knocking at the College Door (Western Interstate Commission forHigher Education, 2012).2The redesigned courses, Biology, Latin, and Spanish Literature and Culture,began in fall 2012, and the first AP Exam based on those redesigned courseswas administered in May 2013. As a result, the data in this report reflect a blendof the old and redesigned exam results.

To build aneven stronger AP program, you could: Provide support for professional development for teachers inunderserved areas of the state. Ensure that public colleges and universities develop AP Examcredit and placement policies based on institutional goals,alignment with corresponding courses, and objectiveoutcomes research. Create opportunities for other schools and districts to learn fromyour AP Honor Roll winners. Provide targeted assistance and resources to schools servingtraditionally underserved populations. For example, funding formaterials, supplies, outreach efforts, and tutoring programs. Clearly communicate how AP fits into state graduationrequirements, and share information about fundingopportunities that enable students to participate and succeed inAP. Communicate the advantages of AP for students attendingyour state’s universities. Develop policies that allow AP course work and exam scores forsophomores and juniors to substitute for statewide graduationrequirements and/or end-of-course assessments. Provide resources to schools and districts to supportresearch-based programs that build content knowledge andskills — particularly in literacy and math — to prepare students forsuccess in AP course work, and in college and careers.4

Achievingboth of these goals is the ideal scenario for a district’s APprogram because it indicates that the district is successfullyidentifying motivated, academically prepared students who arelikely to benefit most from rigorous AP course work.4th Annual Honor Roll Districts in New Jersey: 36Barnegat Township School DistrictBridgewater-Raritan Regional School District*Delaware Valley Regional High SchoolDumont School DistrictEast Windsor Regional School District*Edison Township Public Schools*Freehold Regional High School District*Glen Ridge Public SchoolsHammonton Town School DistrictHanover Park Regional High School District*Highland Park School DistrictHunterdon Central Regional High School*Jackson School DistrictLawrence Township Public SchoolsLivingston Public Schools*Mahwah Township Public Schools*Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School DistrictMiddlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools*Monmouth County Vocational School DistrictMonroe Township School DistrictMoorestown Township Public School*Morris School DistrictNew Providence School DistrictNorthern Burlington County Regional School DistrictPark Ridge Public Schools*Pascack Valley Regional High School DistrictRamapo Indian Hills Regional High School DistrictRumson-Fair Haven Regional High School*Rutherford School DistrictSouth Brunswick Board of Education*Toms River Regional SchoolsUnion Township School DistrictVerona Public Schools*Wallkill Valley Regional School DistrictWatchung Hills Regional High School DistrictWest Essex Regional School District* District has achieved the honor for multiple years.6
