D.C. Everest Senior High Recognized for 
Excellence in Advanced Placement Courses

The Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council (WAPAC) recently recognized D.C. Everest Senior High as a Level 3 Pacesetter school in Advanced Placement (AP) performance for the 2015-16 academic year. In order to receive the recognition, at least 10 percent of the school’s population had to take one or more AP exams, and students had to earn passing grades on at least 60 percent of the exams taken.

In 2016, 16 Wisconsin schools attained Level 1 status, 32 were Level 2, and 92 were Level 3. The data for the WAPAC awards is available from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction at wisedash.dpi.wi.gov/Dashboard/portalHome.jsp.
The Pacesetter Award is unique to Wisconsin and emerged from WAPAC members who felt that many outstanding school districts lacked recognition for AP excellence. In particular, WAPAC was interested in highlighting districts that are seldom recognized. By honoring AP leaders, WAPAC encourages 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.
