A Look at Advanced Placement in DeKalb Schools

The 2015 Advanced Placement Exam period comes to an end today, Friday, May 15th.  The following is a look at the types and numbers of Advanced Placement classes for DeKalb County high schools during the 2013-2014 school year. 

**Note: For Dunwoody HS, the figures for AP Macro and AP Micro seem to be reversed.  DHS only offers AP Macro.

The data is found on the Georgia Office of Student Achievement site:  http://gosa.georgia.gov/2013-14-downloadable-data-files

One thing I found curious concerns Arabia Mountain High School.  For an Science and Engineering Magnet school, the number of AP science and math classes offered appears to be quite limited in comparison to other "traditional" schools.

  1. I'm having trouble understanding what info is in each column. Could you add some more detail? Thank you.

  2. Not sure how accurate this is. For example Dunwoody only offers AP Macro Econ and one student studied on her own for the AP Mirco exam, but the numbers are reversed.

  3. You are correct in your statement in that the columns should be reversed. However, that is how it is being reported on the GOSA site.
