Canterbury School

Canterbury students continue to outperform area high schools on the Advanced Placement Exams. For the testing that occurred last May, students scored an average of 3.98 out of a possible 5.0 on all exams taken, with 90% of those exams considered to be "passing" – that is, scoring 3, 4, or 5 (allowing courses to count toward college credit).

From May 2013 to May 2017, Canterbury students have amassed an average score of 3.95 on all exams taken, with 92% of those exams at a passing rate (defined as a score of 3 or higher).

Additionally, 79 AP Scholar designations and 7 National Scholars were awarded by the College Board in recognition of the students' exceptional achievement. The AP exam is required for all high school students enrolled in AP courses for the school year.

BY THE NUMBERS

  • 55% of the Class of 2017 and 30% of the Class of 2018 have been recognized by the College Board for these honors – incredible percentages that speaks so well of the scholarship of our students.
  • 16 students were named AP Scholars for receiving scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams.
  • 14 students were named AP Scholars with Honor for receiving an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams.
  • 49 students were named AP Scholars with Distinction for receiving an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of those exams.
  • 7 of the students also were named AP National Scholars, for receiving an average score of at least 4 on all AP exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.

This level of achievement is not common among the high schools in the greater Fort Wayne area. We are proud of the students committed to taking courses taught at the college level and the dedication of their teachers.
