Commack Named an AP Honor Roll District

AP Honor Roll Banner for Commack High School

We're so much more!  Read below!

Commack’s Access and Opportunity program, mentioned in Newsday’s online story regarding our AP Honor Roll status, offers much, much, more than AP courses. For example, in addition to nine (9) AP classes in Commack HS we offer more than 90 other college-level courses including six (6) Project Lead the Way courses (college level engineering classes), 56 International Baccalaureate (IB) courses (internationally recognized college level classes), and 29 college credit-bearing courses through affiliations with colleges and universities.

To assure students are ready for these classes, we offer pre-college level classes to all 9th and 10th graders. This program has had astounding results with approximately 66% of all students slated to graduate with five college-level classes on their transcript this year and 90% with at least one class on their transcript. We’ve seen increases in student participation in these classes every year since the inception of Commack's Access and Opportunity initiative. Because many of these classes are project-based, one student said, “I learn so much more when I build (engineer) a robot than when I read about building a robot.”  Dr. James believes that, “Real life, high-level experiences for our students, all students, that interest them has put Commack in a position to allow our students to be prepared for whatever they want to achieve when they leave our schools.  I am ‘Commack Proud’ of our students and staff for their continued efforts and achievement.”

We will send more information about Access and Opportunity in our other schools at a later date.
