More Hoosier Students Enrolling in AP Classes

Hoosier high school students seem to have their thinking caps on. 

More kids are enrolling in advanced placement classes.  Indianapolis Public Schools saw a more than 80-percent jump between 2006 and 2011 according to the Indiana Department of Education.  Carmel Clay saw a 115 percent jump in AP class attendance. 

This is more than just a point of pride for students and parents.  It is also saving real money.  Our news gathering partners at RTV6 talked to a Purdue student who was able to leave high school and start college as a second semester sophomore because of all the college credits she earned from her AP classes. 

To enroll in a high school advanced placement class, a test has to be passed.  Those tests cost $89, but those fees are waived for AP math and science.
