STATEHOUSE (June 15, 2017) — Tri-Central Middle/High School and Westfield High School were among 73 schools honored during Wednesday’s Indiana AP Recognition Ceremony at the Statehouse, according to State Rep. Tony Cook (R-Cicero). 

The Indiana Department of Education and Indiana College Board celebrated the success of these schools, where at least 25 percent of the graduating class earned a score of three or higher on at least one AP exam.  

“These schools continue to stand out academically in Indiana,” Cook said. “I congratulate these young students for their hard work and dedication to their academic careers.”Cook said AP exams are tests taken by high school students after they complete a course designed to demonstrate they are prepared to handle college-level work. With a successful score, these students can also earn college credit. These exams are developed by the College Board, a mission-driven, not-for-profit organization that connects students to success and opportunity in higher education.
