STATEHOUSE (June 16, 2017) — Floyd Central High School and Lanesville Junior-Senior High School were among 73 schools honored during Wednesday’s Indiana AP Recognition ceremony at the Statehouse, according to State Rep. Karen Engleman (R-Georgetown).

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 stand out in Indiana for their dedication to their student’s academic success in advanced classes,” Engleman said. “AP students understand the value of strong academics and the important role it plays in their futures. I congratulate these hard-working scholars and look forward to seeing more of their successes.”

Engleman 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.
