Fourteen students were given the title of AP Scholar with Honor, as they achieved an average score of at least 3.25 on all of their AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. Additionally, 32 students were awarded the title of AP Scholar of with Distinction, as they achieved an average score of at least 3.5 on all exams taken with scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.

The district offered 13 AP level courses during the 2015-16 school year, spanning subjects such as biology and chemistry to various history topics of U.S. History and European History. Students enrolled in these courses are not only challenged academically with college-level material but are also afforded the chance to potentially earn college credit while still in high school.
