Local educator selected to participate in AP Program Reading

Brooke Wilson, Maryville High School history teacher, was selected to participate in the annual reading and scoring of the College Board’s AP Examinations in U.S. History.

Each year the AP Program, sponsored by the College Board, gives more than one million capable high school students an opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses and examinations and, based on their exam performance, to receive credit and/or advanced placement when they enter college.

Approximately 2.8 million examinations in 22 disciplines were evaluated by over 10,000 readers from universities and high schools.

“The reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors that the world has to offer,” said Trevor Packer, executive director of the Advanced Placement Program at the College Board. “It fosters professionalism, allows for the exchange of ideas, and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching. We are very grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Brooke Wilson.”
