Hundreds of Mansfield ISD high school students were recognized by The College Board for outstanding achievement on their 2020 Advanced Placement (AP) exams.

A total of 533 MISD students earned AP Scholar Awards.

Students who enroll in AP courses have the ability to take AP exams upon completion of the course. College credit is then given to the student depending on the score earned on the exam. The highest possible score is a five.

AP Scholar Awards are broken down into different levels based on the score earned. MISD students received distinctions in one or more of the following categories:

  • AP Scholar Award (316 students) - given to students who earn a score of three or higher on three or more AP Exams.
  • AP Scholar with Honor Award (70 students) - given to students who earn an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken with scores of three or higher on four or more of these exams.
  • AP Scholar with Distinction Award (147 students) - given to students who earn an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken with scores of three or higher on five or more of these exams.
  • National AP Scholar Award (29 students) - given to students who earn an average score of four or higher on all AP Exams taken with scores of four or higher on eight or more of these exams.

The rate of MISD students scoring a 3 or higher on an AP test increased by 9%. The mean score increased as well.
