This is the image for the news article titled Danville students achieve high scores on AP and KPREP testsDanville High School students are deciding to spend their high school years earning college credits. Students are taking advanced placement (AP) classes, which allow them to earn college credits after they pass the AP exam.

Last year, 12 AP courses were offered at Danville High School. At least 90 students took an AP exam and scored well enough to earn the college credit.

AP exams are scored on a five-point scale, with many colleges and universities granting credits for scores of 3, 4 or 5. A score of 3 or higher indicates a student is considered “qualified” for college credit and is capable of being successful in a college-level introductory course in the particular content area.

In 2017, seven students who took an AP exam not only earned the college credit, they scored a 5 on the exam -- the highest score possible.

In addition to their high score on the advanced placement exam, these students also scored distinguished in at least one content area of the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress Test, commonly known as the K-PREP test.

The following students are
• Luke Dean
• James Gooch
• Elizabeth Joiner
• Rachel Matherly
• Elisabeth Nesmith
• Emma Webb
• Peyton Young
