Davenport North High School is being recognized for
outstanding test scores.
"Each year thousands of students nation wide take
advance placement or AP tests to earn college credit. At Davenport North.. the
students are taking things to a whole new level," said teacher Shannon Buckley.
Students in Buckley's 2012–2013 AP Calculus class have a lot
to be proud of.
"Of the students 100% passed, and received 4 or 5 out
of a 5 point scale," said Buckley.
This is far above the national average.
And now every student has 3 to 4 credits towards college
"It's an honor, because it shows hard work pays off,"
said Davenport North Senior Aaron Reynolds.
Work hard they did. Students start preparing for the AP test
the minute they start math at Davenport North.
"My department has been very supportive over the course
of the past few years. We've worked very
hard to align the two feeder courses that lead up to calculus with regards to
what we're focusing on in each unit," said Buckley.
Students contribute the success, also to the work they do
once in AP Calc.
"Every day in class there was preparation, and practice
exams. Constant repetition. I guess practice made perfect with us," said
And students said practice is the best advice they can give
"Practice up. Know how to take the exam," said
Any student can take AP practice exams on the College Board
