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

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.

“Congratulations to the AP students and teachers for their great success,” Eberhart said. “These students can head off to college with completed post-secondary work and college credits. AP classes have given them a jumpstart on their education and skills they will be able to use in the next chapter of their lives.”

Eberhart 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.
