On June 8, State Rep. Donna Schaibley (R-Carmel) recognized Carmel, Westfield and Zionsville high schools for their high scores on Advanced Placement exams over the past three years.
Fifty-one high schools were recognized at the Statehouse during the 2016 Indiana Advanced Placement Ceremony. The ceremony highlighted each school’s academic success. The schools had to have at least 25 percent of their graduating classes earning a three or higher on the AP Exam, which is scored on a one to five scale.
“This shows that our community, schools and teachers care about our students’ future as they go on to further their education,” Schaibley stated in a press release. “Our students are ahead of the game with college credit already built up before graduating from high school.”
Carmel and Zionsville high schools have been recognized for high achieving AP students the past six years. Last year, Westfield had 51 percent of its students pass the AP exam.
The AP exams are administered every year to students in AP classes. The exams contain college-level questions to test students’ abilities.
