Marshfield High School has been recognized by the Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council (WAPAC) as a Pacesetter School in Advanced Placement. Based on the below criteria the school received a level 1, 2, or 3 award.
Level 1 % taking exams > 30% and % of scores 3 or above > 70%. Level 2 % taking exams > 20% and % of scores 3 or above > 65%. Level 3 % taking exams > 10% and % of scores 3 or above > 60%.
The impetus of this recognition is to recognize access and excellence regarding Advanced Placement. Pacesetter schools have provided impressive student access to AP courses and posted excellent AP exam results. The Pacesetter Award is unique to Wisconsin and emerged from WAPAC members who felt that many outstanding school districts in our state lacked recognition for AP excellence. In particular, WAPAC was interested in highlighting districts that are seldom recognized for their excellence in AP. The data for the WAPAC award is readily available at http://wise.dpi.wi.gov/about-data-ap-exams. WAPAC’s goal is to focus on increasing participation by recognizing Pacesetters or leaders in AP to encourage other districts to promote both access and excellence.
The Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council is comprised of Wisconsin secondary and collegiate educators who are dedicated to expanding access to AP coursework and rigorous learning for all college bound students.
