Coventry AP class makes history on test

July 23, 2012

COVENTRY — After much hard work and preparation, 25 students from Coventry High School’s Advanced Placement history program passed their test, making this the first time in 19 years that 100 percent of the students have succeeded.

Social studies teacher and curriculum coordinator Matthew Brissette explained that the test is administered through a group called the College Board, the same group that offers the SATs.

“This is the first time that 100 percent of the students have passed,” he said proudly. “We’ve had the program for eight years and every year the scores have gone up.”
