Congratulations to Our 2020 AP Scholars!

Congratulations to the 306 CCHS students who sat for 677 Advanced Placement exams in 26 different subject areas during the spring of 2020, achieving scores that exceeded state and global averages. The success of these students on the college-level AP Exams is particularly notable because they completed the final coursework remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
