Calcasieu Parish Advanced Placement Scores Steadily Increasing

August 26, 2019

Once again, the Calcasieu Parish School Board is proud to report growth in this year’s Advanced Placement® testing results.

This year showcases an increase in the percent, in the number of students and in the number of exams with a qualifying score of a three or higher on an AP test in the Calcasieu Parish School District. This data represents a $1,000,000 savings in the cost of college tuition alone as students earned nearly 3,600 hours of college credit.

The growth exhibited this year exemplifies the success our students and teachers have shown over the last several years. Below is a five-year comparison depicting the growing success within our Advanced Placement program.




We are so proud of the growth and success continued to be exhibited by our students, which is truly a reflection of not only their ability but also our teachers. Our students are committed to gaining knowledge in and out of the classroom, and our teachers are dedicated to ensuring our students are as destined for success.
