Seven current students and recent graduates of Woodlawn High School have earned national recognition as AP Scholars by the College Board for their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program (AP) Exams.
Seniors Autumn Hopper and Allana Hopper, Class of 2017, earned the AP Scholar with Distinction award, granted to students who receive average scores of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.
Junior Josue Casco-Rodriguez, Class of 2018, earned the AP Scholar with Honor award for students who received 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.
Junior Alisa Webb, Class of 2018, and Class of 2016 graduates Michael Poor (LSU Honors College), DeAnthieus Clayton (LSU) and Anaya Askins (LSU) earned the AP Scholar recognition award for students who received scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams.
“Our entire Panther Nation is proud to celebrate these students’ outstanding academic achievements. Their hard work and dedication sets an example for everyone at Woodlawn High School and especially those in in Woodlawn’s AP program,” said Principal Scott Stevens. “It is also a testament to the strength of our academic program and our dedicated teachers.”
Woodlawn students can choose from 19 Advanced Placement courses, starting in their freshman year. Woodlawn is the recipient of a National Math and Science Initiative grant to support AP courses in STEM fields.
The College Board’s AP Program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school, and to receive college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. Although there is no monetary award, each award-winning student receives a certificate, and the award is acknowledged on any AP score report that is sent to college after the award has been given.
