The 2012 Challenge Index shows 55.6% of Irvington students passing at least one AP exam by graduation.

The reason this figure matters is that Advanced Placement courses are, in theory, the equivalent of a college course.

So: 92% of Irvington students attend a 4-year college the year after graduation, but just 55.6% of Irvington students have passed at least one AP exam during high school.

What happens during the summer after graduation to make the other 36% ready to take a college-level course and succeed?
