The district is proud to announce that its high school students have received 41 Advanced Placement (AP) designations. Throughout their high school careers, students have the opportunity to explore a multitude of AP courses where they are challenged to complete rigorous curricula and develop advanced problem-solving skills.
 
In addition to the academic opportunities AP courses provide to students, the successful completion of these courses and assessments can also result in college credits, preparing students for higher education and saving money on tuition costs.
