A total of 77 students from the high school have been honored by the College Board as AP Scholars as a result of their outstanding success on Advanced Placement exams. The exams were taken in May after students completed college-level courses in a variety of subjects. 

According to the College Board website, the AP program offers willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to take college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP exams. 

The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on these exams, including AP Scholar, AP Scholar with Distinction, AP Scholar with Honor and National AP Scholar.

The high school had 43 students acknowledged as AP Scholars after these students received a score of three or higher on three or more exams. AP Scholar with Distinction was presented to 17 students for receiving an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken as well as scores of three or higher on five or more of these exams. Additionally, 17 students were named AP Scholars with Honor by earning an average score at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken and scores of three or higher on four or more of these exams. 

The district commends these students for their hard work and impressive academic achievements.
