This program evaluation studied enrollment trends for the Advanced Placement (AP) program at a Wisconsin high school. To examine the enrollment trends of AP classes, 68 staff and 172 AP students were surveyed. Also, four Gifted and Talented staff were interviewed. Data was gathered through the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction which included the overall student enrollment at School District Y, student enrollment at School X that is within School District Y, and the number of AP exams taken by race, gender, and income at School X. Data from the AP exam participation rate 5-Year summary for Hispanic students at School X was gathered. The results of the data indicate that there are students that are being left behind which include students that are economically disadvantaged as well as Black and Hispanic students.
