Editor's note: The following is a press release issued by the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District.

More than 650 Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District high school students have been recognized as Advanced Placement (AP) scholars for their excellence on AP exams taken in the 2011-2012 school year.

All told, The College Board recognized 658 District 196 students, up from 571 the year before.

District 196 high schools offer 24 different AP courses which have been audited and approved by the College Board, a nonprofit organization of colleges, universities, secondary schools and higher education institutions focused on college readiness programs. Students who complete an AP course can take an optional exam and earn college credit, depending on their score on the exam and admission requirements at the college or university they attend. An AP exam score of 3 or higher (on a scale of 1 to 5) earns credit at many of the nation's colleges and universities.

There are several different levels of AP scholar recognition that are defined by the scores received and the number of exams taken during a student's high school career:

  • AP Scholar is granted to students who receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams taken;
  • AP Scholar with Honor recognizes 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 the exams;
  • AP Scholar with Distinction is given 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 the exams, and
  • National AP Scholar recognizes students 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 the exams.

The District 196 students who earned recognition as AP scholars during the 2011-12 school year are listed below by category and school.
