Lufkin High School AP Scholars
Lufkin, TX -- Sixty-three Lufkin ISD students have been named AP Scholars by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college level Advanced Placement test. The Advanced Placement (AP) is a college-level curriculum program that allows high school students across the nation the opportunity to receive placement and college course credit based on a high score of the examination. The honor is given to students who receive a score of 3 or higher on the AP test and have taken at least three exams. The curriculum for the AP course is derived from a panel of experts for the College Board.
Lufkin High School currently offers 19 different AP courses. Among the 63 who were named AP Scholars, three Lufkin ISD students were recognized as National AP Scholars, an honor given to students in the United States who received an average score of at least 4 on all AP exams taken and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.
Lynn Torres, Deputy Superintendent of Teaching and Learning said, “Lufkin students do exceptionally well on the AP exams and receive many college credit hours and recognitions as a result of their success. Our teachers are well trained and maintain the rigorous standards required by the College Board.”
Mark Smith, LHS Principal said, “I am extremely proud of our students and their performance on AP exams. Being named an AP scholar by scoring a 3, 4, or 5 on 3 or more exams is an honor for these students and for our school. These results speak to the rigor and the depth of our curriculum. I am proud of the focus, dedication, and hard work, not only by our students, but also by our teachers.”
