South and West Forsyth high schools were two of 125 schools recognized by the state as 2010 Advanced Placement Honor Schools.

In a statement, State Superintendent Kathy Cox heralded what she said was Georgia’s “tremendous strides with Advanced Placement — not only in the number of students taking the courses, but in the number of students having success.”

“Much of that progress comes from the dedication to rigor and excellence at each of [the schools],” Cox said.

The awards were based on results of the 2008-09 AP classes and exams.

West and South Forsyth high schools earned AP Merit School status, where at least half of students who take Advanced Placement exam must score a 3 or higher and at least 20 percent of students must take the exam.

Also recognized as AP Merit were Alpharetta, Centennial, Chattahoochee, Milton and Northview high schools.
