The Indiana Department of Education on Tuesday awarded Whiteland Community High School for student success on AP exams for the 2016-2017 school year, according to State Rep. Woody Burton.

During the 2018 Indiana AP Recognition Ceremony, the DOE and College Board recognized more than 70 schools for having 25 percent or more of their graduating class earn a score of 3 out of 5 on at least one AP exam.

“Students who enroll in AP courses can jumpstart their college education and prepare for higher-level work while they are still in high school,” Burton said. “These college-level classes are more rigorous than traditional high school coursework, and if a student scores high enough, colleges and universities will award them credit. Our community is fortunate to have excellent educators teaching these courses, as they are instrumental in ensuring students are successful once they graduate high school.”

Burton said high school students take AP exams after they complete courses designed to demonstrate they are prepared to handle college-level work. With a successful AP exam score, a student can usually earn college credit. AP exams are developed by the College Board, a mission-driven, not-for-profit organization that connects students to success and opportunity in higher education.
