Santa Ana Unified Named to 8th Annual AP District Honor Roll

Santa Ana Unified has been named to the 8th Annual AP District Honor Roll, which recognizes school districts from the United States and Canada committed to increasing access to AP for underrepresented students while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher.

Of the 447 districts named, 34 are in California.  

Santa Ana is joined by Garden Grove, Placentia-Yorba Linda, and Tustin as the only 4 school districts in Orange County to be named to this honor.  

Santa Ana Unified is also 1 of 3 districts statewide that have received this award multiple years while working with an AP student population of 30% or more underrepresented minority students and 30% or more low-income students.

Not only does this award reflect improved student achievement, it also reflects the hard work Advanced Placement teachers, High School counselors and administrators have done in the past few years to increase access and success in these rigorous courses.
