The eighth annual AP® District Honor Roll has named the Eanes Independent School District to its 2017 list, one of only 26 Texas school districts to make the list. This is the district’s second time to earn the distinction.
“Congratulations to our hard-working students at all levels who are focused on their academics every day and to our educators who interface with them to succeed at such a high level,” said Eanes ISD Superintendent Dr. Tom Leonard. “This recognition is because of staff efforts focused on improving student performance and increasing the number of AP tests taken annually.”
To qualify for the award, Eanes ISD increased the number of students participating in Advanced Placement courses, with data from 2015 to 2017 taken into consideration. It also increased or maintained the percentage of students earning AP Exam scores of three or higher. Almost 4,000 AP exams were administered at Westlake High School in the spring of 2017, and about 75 percent of the tests were scored at a three or higher.
Lake Travis Independent School District was another area school district to make the list, with only 447 school districts in the United States and Canada honored in total. AP scores can qualify high school students for class credit and advanced placement at more than 4,000 colleges and universities around the world. There are 37 AP exams for a variety of subjects, including world language and culture.
