Bettendorf High School recently ranked #21 in the Iowa AP Index for the Top 50 Schools for 2014-2015 by the University of Iowa’s Belin-Blank Center for Gifted Education, the 10th time it has achieved such an honor since the Belin-Blank Center began rating schools in 2005. In 2014-15, the school year in which AP data was used for the ranking, Bettendorf High School students took a total of 370 Advanced Placement Exams.
