In the VHS course AP® European History, which includes activities such as debates, role-playing, and participation in research groups using Web 2.0 tools, the average pass rate was 71.4 percent compared to the national average of 44 percent. In The Virtual High School’s AP® English Literature and Composition course, 88.9 percent of VHS students passed the AP® exam compared to the national average of 52.6 percent.
