AP District Honor Roll

Mason City Schools is one of 447 school districts in the U.S. and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 8th Annual AP® District Honor Roll.

For the Class of 2017, 70 percent of the class took at least one AP class, and 88.54 percent of the students enrolled in a class took the exam.
