State AP test scores highest in Midwest

High school students in the state are doing better on Advanced Placement tests than neighboring states, and the national average. Twenty-two percent got a three or higher last year, and that's ranked No. 1 in the Midwest.

In the Appleton school district, scores improved for the fourth year in a row.

Kevin Steinhilber is the chief academic officer, and he says more students are taking advanced classes. He says if they do well enough on the AP tests, they can earn college credits.

Steinhilber says about 725 Appleton students took at least one AP test last year. Statewide, 32 percent took one or more tests.
