Snapshot: State, College Board recognize Noblesville High School for AP



Noblesville Schools announced June 17 that Noblesville High School was recognized by the Indiana Dept. of Education and The College Board for strong student performance on Advanced Placement courses and exams. The honor highlights schools where at least 25 percent of the graduating class cohort earned a score of 3 or higher on at least one AP exam. This year, schools that achieved the 25 percent success rate for the 2013, 2014 and 2015 graduating cohorts were honored. NHS has achieved this benchmark for all six years the award has been given. This recognition is in addition to NHS being one of only 13 districts in the state named to the AP Honor Roll last year based on increased student participation in AP coursework and improvement of overall AP exam scores. NHS has exceeded the state benchmark for AP scores for over five consecutive years and most recently bested the benchmark by 22 percentage points. A recognition ceremony was held at the Indiana Statehouse to celebrate the accomplishment.
