Mansfield ISD high school students earned 343 Advanced Placement (AP) Scholar awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the 2015 AP Exams, according to a recent newsletter sent out by Mansfield ISD. A total of 233 students helped achieve this tremendous accomplishment. This is a 40 percent increase from the previous year when 166 students earned 279 distinctions.

AP courses are college-level classes available to high school students. AP exams are given after completion of the course. The highest score possible is a five, and students have the ability to earn college credit depending on the score earned on the exam.

AP Scholar awards are broken down into four categories, and MISD had students earn distinctions in each one. Read more about the achievements here. A full list of scholars can be found here.
