Wilson Classical High School is one of only 16 schools nationwide recognized in the College Board’s fifth annual AP Report to the nation for increasing access to Advanced Placement among traditionally underserved students.
Wilson was specifically recognized as the public school with the largest number of Latino students in the Class of 2008 achieving success, with a score of three or higher on the AP World History Exam.
The Long Beach Unified School District has made a concerted effort to increase access to AP as part of its Academic and Career Success Initiative.
The number of students enrolled in AP classes districtwide has increased steadily in recent years. Wilson regularly appears on Newsweek’s annual list of America’s Best High Schools because of the number of students taking AP tests there.
