LUHS receives AP recognition

Lakeland Union High School is one of the top high schools in the region when it comes to Advanced Placement testing.

The Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council recognized LUHS as a pacesetter school for exam scores in the 2012-13 school year, according to Todd Kleinhans, the district’s administrator.

LUHS is among four other high schools in the CESA 9 region to receive the honor, including Rhinelander High School, Tomahawk High School, D.C. Everest High School and Wausau West High School.

The award was based on the amount of students who took at least one AP exam and the number of students who scored three or higher on the exams, which are out of five points.

Kleinhans said 82 students, or about 11 percent of the student body, took 137 AP exams in the 2012-13 school year. More than 73 percent of those students scored three or higher, he said.

“I think this is a really neat recognition in terms of our AP program,” Kleinhans said.

AP students put in an incredible amount of effort for their required coursework. High achievement on the exams also benefits them in attaining college credit for this Advanced Placement program. I also commend the AP teachers who work tirelessly for the kids in offering such wonderful programs. Public education is certainly providing amazing opportunities for all our kids who want to rise to the challenge. Congratulations to all.
