STATEHOUSE (June 13, 2018) – The Indiana Department of Education on Tuesday awarded Eastbrook High School for student AP exam success during the 2016-2017 school year, according to State Rep. Kevin Mahan (R-Hartford City).

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.

“Students seeking to distinguish themselves during the college admissions process do so in many ways, but AP classes may be the best option to signal they are committed to their education,” Mahan said. “It demonstrates a student’s willingness to challenge themselves with a rigorous academic schedule, and it’s no secret that colleges and universities look favorably upon those students with a successful AP course load.”

Mahan 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.
