The OPS district had 149 Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars as a result of the 2018 exams. The Advanced Placement program is available in all seven OPS high schools and offers students the opportunity to take college-level courses in a high school setting.
 
The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on student's performance on AP Exams.  Our students have earned the following awards:
  • An AP Scholar Award which is granted to students who receive grades of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams. Five is the highest possible score.
  • An AP Scholar with Honors Award, granted to students who receive an average grade of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams.
  • An AP Scholar with Distinction is granted to students who receive an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.
  • And, a National AP Scholar is granted to students in the United States who receive an average grade of at least 4 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams. 

We salute and congratulate these students for their exceptional achievement on the college level Advanced Placement Program courses and exams.
