Lufkin High School provides choices of Advanced Placement courses in 22 subject areas. At the end of the course, a test is given to determine if the student can receive college credit. The score is on a 5-point scale, with 5 being the highest.
Last school year, Lufkin High School gave 457 exams taken by 253 students.
Of those students, 35 received scores high enough to be an AP Scholar with a score of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams.
Fifteen students received scores to be an AP Scholar with Honor. These students’ test scores were at least an average score of 3.25 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on four or more AP exams.
The AP Scholar with Distinction recognition went to 13 students with at least an average score of 3.50 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on five or more AP exams.
“As Lufkin High School strives to educate and equip all students with exceptional learning experiences, we are thrilled with the announcement of College Board’s AP Scholars and program results,” Julie McManus, Lufkin High School principal said. “Our AP program and curriculum are not only challenging but help ensure students are prepared for challenges they will face beyond high school.”
Each college will determine how the scores will affect credit or placement.
“Lufkin High School has a longstanding tradition of well-rounded AP students with many accolades and this year is no exception,” McManus said. “This is a testament to our AP teacher’s expertise and delivery of challenging curriculum, along with the hard work and dedication of our students.”
