Gov. Gary Herbert and state business leaders honored Park City High on Monday as the Top Advanced Placement High School in Utah.

Park City High was named the top AP high school based on a formula looking at the percent of students who take and pass AP tests.

The governor awarded the school a traveling trophy and met with students to learn about the keys to their success.

Herbert recognized the school Monday in collaboration with the Education Excellence Commission, Fidelity Investments and Prosperity 2020, a business-led initiative to improve education in Utah.

According to the formula the governor used to rank top AP schools, Skyline High ranked second, Davis High in Kaysville ranked third, Hillcrest High in Midvale ranked fourth, and Karl G. Maeser Preparatory Academy in Lindon ranked fifth.
