STATEHOUSE (June 8, 2016) — State Rep. Greg Steuerwald (R-Avon) congratulated three local high schools for their students’ outstanding performance on Advanced Placement (AP) tests.

The 2016 Indiana Advanced Placement Ceremony, hosted by the College Board, which administers the tests, and the Indiana Department of Education, recognized schools that had a minimum of 25 percent of its graduating class earn a score of a 3 or higher on at least one AP exam. The tests are scored on a 1 to 5 scale.

Avon, Brownsburg and Plainfield were three of the high schools honored today at the Statehouse for achieving the 25 percent success rate for the graduating classes of 2013, 2014 and 2015. 

“I want to congratulate the students and teachers from these three exemplary schools on their significant accomplishments,” Steuerwald said. “Their hours of hard work and dedicated preparation have paid off and I wish them continued success in the future.”

A total of 51 schools from around the state were recognized at the ceremony. Many colleges and universities across the country award course credit to incoming students for certain AP exam results.
