BOZEMAN — A record 16.6 percent of Montana high school seniors took college-level Advanced Placement classes in 2009.

The College Board in a report earlier this month says that's up from 13.1 percent five years but still below the national average of 26.5 percent.

The Montana Office of Public Instruction says seven school districts ranked among the top in the state with the highest percentage of graduating students in AP programs.

Those districts are Bozeman, Gardiner, Stevensville, Three Forks, Roy, Whitefish and Baker.
