The Milton School District was one of 10 in the state and 250 in the US and Canada on the 10th annual AP District Honor Roll.
It is the third time the district has received the College Board recognition since the honor roll began in 2011.
The AP District Honor Roll recognizes school districts achieved increases in access to Advanced Placement courses for a broader number of students and also maintained or improved the rate at which their AP students earned scores of three or higher on an AP Exam.
Exams are given after high school students participate in AP classes to determine whether students can receive college credit. The College Board and the American Council on Education (ACE) recommend awarding credit for AP Exam scores of three or higher.
