The College Board has recognized 77 Deer Park High School students as AP Scholars for 2013, an increase of nine since last year. AP courses are graded on a scale of 1 to 5, with a score of 3 or above qualifying high school students for college course credit.

Through its Advanced Placement Program, the College Board presents several levels of AP Scholar Awards honoring top students who demonstrate outstanding college-level achievement via AP courses and exams. Each of the honorees – whose achievements will be noted in AP score reports sent to prospective colleges – received an award certificate.
 
Deer Park boasted a total of six National AP Scholars, a category reserved for students who received an average score of at least 4 on all AP exams taken and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.

The school can also take pride in its 14 AP Scholars with Distinction, a title awarded to students who received an average score of at least 3.5 on their AP exams and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams; seven AP Scholars with Honor, who received an average score of at least 3.25 on all of their AP exams and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of those exams; and 56 AP Scholars, who received scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams.
