On February 27, Georgia's State School Superintendent Richard Woods named Toombs County High School an Advanced Placement (AP) Honor School.

The 2024 AP Honor Schools are named based on the results of 2023 AP courses and exams. Toombs County High School is one of 276 high schools from 99 school districts to receive this honor.

“I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the 2024 AP Honor Schools,” Superintendent Woods said. “I commend them for their hard work to build strong Advanced Placement programs and, as a result, provide highquality opportunities for Georgia students. Additionally, I am thrilled that the number of AP Honor Schools and school districts continues to rise each year – a testament to the commitment of Georgia public education to expand opportunities for all Georgia students.”

AP exams are administered by the College Board, which also administers the SAT. AP courses are one of several ways Georgia students can access college-level learning at the high school level; students who receive a 3, 4, or 5 on an AP exam may receive college credit.

Toombs County High School earned the recognition of AP Challenge School based on the Georgia Department of Education requirements. AP Challenge Schools are schools with enrollments of 900 or fewer students, exams administered in English, math, science, and social studies, and a minimum of 25 total exams administered. A total of 43 schools received this honor, with Toombs County High School being the only school in the area to be recognized.
