Feb 26 2021

The Georgia Department of Education (GADOE) recently released its data regarding the state’s Advanced Placement (AP) pass rate for the Class of 2020, and Villa Rica High School was recognized as an AP Access and Support School. Schools in this category have at least 30 percent of AP exams taken by African American and Hispanic students and 30 percent of all AP exams earning scores of 3 or higher.

Dr. Jessica Ainsworth, Assistant Superintendent of School Performance stated, “Earning state recognition for advanced academic offerings at VRHS is testament to the great work that our teachers and administrators are doing to provide premier opportunities for all students. It also demonstrates the district’s commitment to helping our students prepare to be enrolled, employed, enlisted, and engaged upon graduation.”

Seth Rogers, Principal of Villa Rica High School added, “We are honored to be recognized among the top schools in Georgia for preparing students for a successful future. Our team is focused on positively impacting the lives of our students in all areas, especially in academics.”

According to the GADOE and the College Board, Georgia’s public-school Class of 2020 ranks 17th in the nation for AP pass rate. The state’s ranking remained the same in comparison with the Class of 2019.
