One hundred Lake Park High School students earned recognition from the College Board for
their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program (AP) Exams they took
during their high school career. The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program offers
students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school, and
to receive college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP
Exams. Students took AP Exams in May 2010 after completing challenging college-level courses.
Many of the students are from the class of 2010 and the honors represent their achievement on AP
exams throughout their high school career.
