On Tuesday, Feb. 4, a group of Advanced Placement course students from Los Alamos High School visited the Capitol Building in Santa Fe to receive the College Board’s AP District Honor Roll Award. 

According to the CollegeBoard, the award was given to 477 districts across the nation and Canada for schools that increased “access to AP®course work while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams.” 

LAHS is the first school in the history of New Mexico to receive this award. 

For the 10 faculty members and 22 students that went on the trip, the day began with an awards’ ceremony held in the State Capitol’s rotunda. 

Los Alamos county representatives and New Mexico Senators Richard C. Martinez and Carlos R. Cisneros presented the awards to the LAHS group each with a speech and some words of knowledge about the importance of education.

LAHS Principal Sandra Warnock and Los Alamos Public Schools Superintendent Eugene Schmidt also spoke. 

“You are our nation’s best,” Schmidt said to the audience of LAHS students, “and we are very proud of you.”
