100 Auburn School District students earn AP Scholar Awards

Twenty-three Auburn High School, 33 Auburn Mountainview High School and 44 Auburn Riverside High School students earned the prestigious Advanced Placement Scholar Award in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP exams.

The College Board’s AP Program provides motivated and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performances on the AP exams. About 18 percent of the nearly 1.7 million students worldwide who took AP exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
