Humble ISD recognizes National AP scholars at August 8 Board Meeting
The department of Advanced Academics highlighted the performance of Humble ISD students on the 2017 Advanced Placement Exams. A student's score on a given AP exam measures their achievement in a college-level course. The score can be used by colleges and universities to determine if college credit is granted for what a student has already learned and allow the student to skip the equivalent course in college.
In May 2017, a total of 5,086 AP exams were taken by 2,927 students - an increase of 12% over 2016.
More than half of the students received a score of 3 or higher, earning a minimum of 8,781 potential college credits.
Students who do well on multiple AP exams can receive one of four College Board's AP Scholar designations. More than 600 Humble ISD students received one of these designations. 26 of these students attained the highest level of achievement and were named National AP Scholars.
National AP Scholars averaged a score of at least 4.00 on all exams, and scoried 4 or higher on eight or more exams.
The Advanced Academics department commemorated the exceptional academic accomplishment of Humble ISD students by presenting the District with a banner bearing the names of all 26 National AP Scholars.
