Forty La Porte High School students, including 14 recent graduates, have been named as 2020 AP Scholars.

The honor recognizes high school students who have demonstrated outstanding college-level achievement through their performance on multiple AP exams, according to information from the College Board. The AP Program announces the honorees each fall.

"These awards are a great honor,” La Porte High School Principal Carlin Grammer said. “We are extremely proud of the work and dedication that these students have put forth to earn these recognitions.”  

Eight more La Porte High School students received honors in 2020 compared with 2019. Grammer said he is hopeful that the trend will continue.
