A number of students have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP exams that they took last May.

In total, 28 students were named AP Scholars, 19 earned the title of AP Scholar with Honor, 16 were named AP Scholars with Distinction and five were ranked as National AP Scholars.

The district has been running an AP program for the past 20 years in an effort to provide students with college-level rigor in a high school setting. The district’s AP program, which caters to about 250 students, provides students with the ability to not only earn college credits, but to also demonstrate to colleges that they are willing to go beyond minimum high school requirements by choosing to take on a more rigorous AP course load.

The high school currently provides 14 AP courses ranging in subjects from math and science to social studies, English, art and music. The most popular courses include AP Macroeconomics, AP U.S. History, AP English Literature and AP Composition.
