STATEHOUSE (June 13, 2018) — The Indiana Department of Education on Tuesday awarded Westfield High School and Tri-Central Middle-High School for student success on AP exams for the 2016-2017 school year, according to State Rep. Tony Cook (R-Cicero).

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.

“AP courses are a good way for students to prepare for their post-secondary education and build on the skills they’ll need in college,” Cook said. “Our educators are passionate about teaching these courses and helping their students succeed in school and beyond the classroom. This is the second year in a row .”

Cook 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.
