HML students earn a high passing rate in AP testing

Wednesday, October 31, 2018 0 Comments


A total of 524 students participated in Advanced Placement (AP) testing in May 2018 at Hialeah Miami Lakes Senior High School (HML) including 829 tests in over 15 elective and core subjects. Students at HML earned an impressive passing rate of 69 percent, compared to the district average passing rate of 55 percent. 

 Trojan scholars didn’t stop there. They also outperformed peers statewide, where the passing rate was 56 percent, and even outscored the global passing rate of 61 percent. Trojans have outscored the state of Florida average for the last five years and the global average for the last three. Results for AP testing are released by the College Board in July of each year. 

 Students who score a three or above can earn college credit, reducing both the time and expense at the university level. “I earned 21 college credits from AP classes, which prepared me for college because the workload of those classes emulate that of a college class,” said Adrian Rodriguez, HML graduate and freshman at University of Central Florida.
