Impressive Advanced Placement Results
Congratulations to our 2013-2014 Westfield High School students for their impressive performance! Advanced Placement results have just been made available for the testing cycle ending in May, 2014. Indiana’s Access and Success initiative challenges schools to get more students to take AP classes and to earn a passing score of 3, 4, or 5 on an AP exam which earns college credit.
Our students collectively completed 787 AP tests-- 203 more tests than the previous year. Typically as access (more tests taken) increases, the success rate measured by percentage of students earning a passing score will decrease. However, our students increased passing rates as well: moving from a 75% to a 78% passing rate! Our passing rates are 15% higher than national rates and 26% higher than Indiana rates.
Based upon the average cost of a credit hour at Indiana state universities, our parents will avoid over $500,000 in future tuition costs due to students who will be leaving high school with earned college credit.
Many thanks to the teachers who prepared their students for success, and, most of all, to our students for their impressive performance.
Another Great Article about Westfield in the media this month. There are so many exciting changes coming in Westfield, I cannot help but be optimistic that our little town now a city is going to continue to prosper. As the media attention continues to grow, more and more relocation buyers are going to target Westfield for their family's new home.
Next time you are weighing what investment will yeild the highest return on investment in your home, don't forget about landscaping. First impressions start before someone enters your home. Updating Kitchens and Baths have always been the no brainers. But don't leave off the landscape architecture that includes a well thought out professional plan for plantings, hardscapses like decks, patios, fire pits, and outdoor living spaces. Many homeowners do not take the time to invest in these areas. So when you do, your home will stand out among the competition. Your home will sell faster and possibly up to 20% additional value!
