Meet Highlight Districts

Meet some districts identified as best practice partners for their implementation of a dual credit program

Advanced Placement
The 2017 AP Honor Roll list includes the following districts: Arlington, Everett, Lake Washington, Longview, Orcas Island, Peninsula, Shoreline and Walla Walla. These districts have seen an increase in the number of AP exams taken, and have at least held steady or improved their overall exam scores, for a three-year span or longer.

College in the High School
Zillah HS has done an exceptional job integrating College in the High School opportunities into the master schedule of a fairly small high school

International Baccalaureate
Rainier Beach HS has built a culture of high expectations and achievement through implementing a significant support structure in combination with offering more IB opportunities to all students.

If your district is finding ways to scale up dual credit opportunities for more students and/or increase equitable access to dual credit, please contact Kim Reykdal or Barbara Dittrich and let us know!
