Monomoy Regional High School receives honors for statewide excellence and AP access

Monomoy Regional High School has recently received numerous honors for its excellence in educating students and providing all students with access to advanced coursework. 

In the most recent U.S. News and World Report annual ranking of the best high schools in each state, only three Cape Cod schools were in the top 100 of the 348 Massachusetts schools ranked – Monomoy Regional High School took the 83rd spot. The U.S. News ranking system takes into consideration the graduation rates, college readiness, state assessment scores, and underserved student performance of each school to arrive at the rankings.

In addition, Monomoy Regional High School has earned a place on the College Board's AP School Honor Roll for the 2022-23 school year. The AP School Honor Roll recognizes schools that have done outstanding work to welcome more students into AP courses and support them on the path to college success. MRHS is being further recognized with the AP Access Award, which honors schools that encourage more low-income and underrepresented minority students to take AP courses. In the letter announcing this recognition,Trevor Packer, College Board Senior Vice President, AP and Instruction, wrote, “Research shows students who take AP courses and exams are more likely to attend college and graduate on time. And even for those who don't earn college credit, advanced coursework provides early exposure to college-level work and contributes to a college-going school culture.”  

“Our team of dedicated educators has worked hard to ensure that Monomoy students are well prepared, and the US News ranking makes clear that we are offering our students a first-class education,” said MRHS Principal Jennifer Police. “And even more critical, the College Board AP Honor Roll and AP Access recognition demonstrates that we are increasing opportunities for all students, addressing inequities and creating more positive outcomes for our students.”

“I am incredibly proud of the work being done at Monomoy Regional High School and am pleased to see it recognized on a national level,” said Monomoy Superintendent Scott Carpenter, Ed.D. “I’ve always been confident that MRHS is one of the top schools in our region, and these accolades back that up. We also are working hard to ensure that this excellent education is made available to all students, and that they are supported to achieve success.”
