September 28, 2022 — A total of 44 Mound Westonka High School students have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP exams last school year.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) 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 performance on the AP Exams. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams.
“We are extremely proud of their accomplishments,” said school counselor Ann Baumann. “We continue to increase AP access for all students who are interested in taking a course for possible college credit.”

AP is accepted by more than 3,800 colleges and universities worldwide for college credit, advanced placement, or both based on successful AP Exam grades. Research consistently shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP Exams (based on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest) typically experience greater academic success in college and higher graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.
