Regina Junior/Senior High School received a number 1 in the 2008 AP (Advanced Placement) Index Award from the Belin-Blank Center at the University of Iowa. This ranking is determined by dividing the number of graduating seniors from a high school by the number of AP exams taken. A score of 1 means the number of AP exams for a school equals the number of graduates. Ten schools achieved or surpassed this standard this year, up from eight last year.
Regina has been in the top three of the index for the past four years.
Regina Junior/Senior High School was one of the high schools in the United States to receive the Siemens Award. This award is given to schools that excel in the College Board Advanced Placement Program in math and science. Along with the award, Regina’s math and science departments received a check for $1,000.
Regina will administer 94 AP exams in May of this school year to juniors and seniors.
