POLY FOSTERS ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

Through a progressive liberal arts curriculum and an enriching co-curricular program featuring the arts and athletics, Poly students
experience excellence—intellectually, physically, and morally—across many disciplines.
 
Poly educates the whole student: mind, body, and—above all—character in a rigorous, yet supportive academic setting.

Poly demonstrates its commitment to academic excellence in many ways, from celebrating individual academic achievement and creating a culture where excellence is “cool” to offering opportunities for accelerated and advanced learning.

PROGRAMMATIC EXCELLENCE

For instance, because we believe that success in Advanced Placement courses is the single best predictor of college success:

1) Poly has maintained a 30-year commitment to the College Board’s Advanced Placement Program with 300+ tests administered to more than 100 test-takers each year; and

2) we also offer 18 Advanced Placement courses (more than 30 classes) each year.
STUDENT EXCELLENCE

Moreover, our students demonstrate excellence in many ways. For example:

1) Consistently strong results on the college board’s standardized exams, National Merit Scholarship (NMSQT-PSAT), National Achievement Scholars, and Advanced Placement Scholars competitions, with many students each year finishing as semifinalists or with commended status; and

2) Strong schoolwide results on a range of writing assessments, including ERB/WrAP, SAT subtests in writing, and SAT subject tests.
