STATEHOUSE (June 12, 2018) — The Indiana Department of Education on Tuesday awarded Castle High School for student success on AP exams for the 2016-2017 school year, according to State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler).

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 or higher on at least one AP exam.

“Taking AP classes can challenge students and help them stand out in the college admissions process,” Bacon said. “It’s encouraging to see students in our area taking advantage of these courses, building on important college-level skills and excelling on the exams.”

Bacon 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.
