MD State Superintendent Tours Mardela Springs High School

Posted: Updated:

MARDELA SPRINGS, Md. - For the seventh year in a row, Maryland schools are number one in the nation, when it comes to Advanced Placement scores.

State Superintendent, Dr. Lillian Lowery, and College Board officials dropped in on an AP class at Mardela Springs High School Monday. They tell WMDT, after touring several classes, this one was the biggest yet. They also saw first hand, how the students are achieving such high scores.

"These students are actually touching the assessments. They're looking at the kinds of questions they're going to be asked, and if you notice, they're not working in isolation, they're working in teams to unpack the data and unpack the content," said Dr. Lillian Lowery.

The students will take their AP exams starting on May 6th.
