|NOTE: Dual-credit courses allow students to earn both high school and postsecondary credits for a single course. AP courses and their end-of-course examinations are developed and administered by The College Board and allow students to earn postsecondary credit. IB courses are defined as courses that make up a 2-year liberal arts curriculum that leads to an IB diploma. Percentages are based on unrounded numbers. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding or missing data. For the FRSS study sample, there were 29 cases for which the percent minority enrollment in the school was missing. Those cases were included in the totals and in analyses by other school characteristics. See supplemental note 1 for school locale definitions.
