Lakeview School District has been selected for the College Board’s 8th Annual AP Honor Roll. Lakeview is one of only 447 districts in the U.S. and Canada to achieve this status. Twenty one Michigan districts made the list this year. “This is an honor that reflects the commitment of our high school staff to engage and support all students in achieving at a high level,” said Lakeview Superintendent Blake Prewitt. The College Board annually recognizes districts for increasing student access to Advanced Placement (AP) courses while maintaining or increasing the percentage of students who pass AP exams. Lakeview offers 13 AP courses including English, statistics, economics, physics and history. Enrollment in AP coursework continues to increase, with almost 30% of LHS students enrolled in AP courses this year.
