December 13th, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — December 10, 2012

Rumson — The College Board has announced that Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High
School has been selected for its national AP District Honor Roll. Schools chosen for this
honor are recognized for successfully offering Advanced Placement (AP) courses to a
more diverse group of learners while simultaneously maintaining or improving students’
scores on AP exams.

To achieve AP District Honor Roll status, RFH increased the number of students taking
AP courses by 32%. In addition, the school successfully increased the percentage of
students scoring a three or above on AP exams.

Currently 628 students are enrolled in the eighteen AP course selections offered at
RFH. The school’s most recent addition to the AP curriculum, AP English Language and
Composition, attracted a record-high number of 70 students in 11th and 12th grade.

“We are thrilled to be selected for the College Board’s AP District Honor Roll,” said
Principal Tracy Handerhan. “RFH has a very special combination of students accepting
the challenge of a rigorous curriculum plus a faculty providing tremendous academic
support, and I am very pleased to see their efforts recognized.”

College Board is a not-for-profit national organization providing students with a path to
college opportunities, including financial support and scholarships. AP courses allow
students to acquire the skills and study habits they need to succeed in college as
well as compete more effectively for scholarships. At the completion of an AP course,
students can earn college credit with a score of three or higher on the exam.
