It means nothing to the student who chooses not to go to college after graduation.

However for the students who do pursue this goal it means alot to receieve the college prep and advancment tests.

This list demonstrates Mecklenburg and other schools in the area that made the list are making efforts to provide what is needed to get the students to college.
