Senator Owen H. Johnson congratulates three high schools in the 4th Senate District that were recognized nationally by the College Board for increasing access to Advanced Placement (AP) courses and maintaining or improving the rate at which students score well on demanding AP tests. 
“I’d like to congratulate three schools in my district: Copiague High School; Sayville High School; and West Islip High School for being recognized by the College Board and for being placed on their National Advanced Placement Achievement List,” Senator Johnson said. 

Copiague Public Schools, Sayville Union Free School District and West Islip Union Free School District were among eleven Long Island schools on the College Board’s National AP Achievement List.  College Board research shows that AP courses can contribute to a student’s readiness for college and the likelihood of success.  Students can earn college credit for high scores on AP exams, offsetting college tuition bills.
