AP Honor Roll Gold

NDB has been named to the inaugural 2023 AP School Honor Roll. The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools whose AP programs are delivering results for students while broadening access. Schools can earn this recognition annually based on criteria that reflect a commitment to increasing college-going culture, providing opportunities for students to earn college credit and maximizing college readiness. The AP School Honor Roll offers four levels of distinction: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. NDB has been designated as Gold. With 217 students who took 452 AP exams, 71.43% scored a three or higher on at least one AP exam.
