AP Exam award recipients

Little Elm ISD students have started the year on the path of success. More than 200 students were recognized and celebrated Thursday evening in front of parents, educators, and their peers for the Advanced Placement achievement. Nearly 40 of them earned AP scholar awards of various levels. Every fall, the AP Program, through College Board, recognizes high school students who have demonstrated outstanding college-level achievement through their performance on multiple AP Exams. "These students dedicated their time and energy to achieve academic success on AP Exams," said Amanda Ball, Advanced Academics director. "We awarded over $50,000 for achievement on Advanced Placement exams."

  • Students who received a 3 on one or more AP Exams have qualified for college credit at any state university in Texas. 
  • Students who received a 4 or 5 on one or more AP Exams will be awarded a cash scholarship from Little Elm ISD. 

Renee Pentecost, LEHS principal said, "There are several designations we would like to recognize as well."

  • AP Scholar: Granted to students who received a 3 or higher on 3 or more AP Exams. This year LEHS has 41 students with this designation.
  • AP Scholar with Honor: Granted to students who receive an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. LEHS has 9 students receiving this honor.
  • AP Scholar with Distinction: Granted to students who receive an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. This year we have 18 students receiving this award.
  • National AP Scholar: Granted to students in the United States who receive an average score of at least 4 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams. We are proud to recognize 3 students with this high level of achievement.
