“I attribute our high achievement levels to our dedicated AP teachers and committed students. We are utilizing additional data sources to identify all students who should be enrolled in an AP course and therefore expose more Waukee High School students to more learning opportunities. WHS administration and teachers are also committed to mindful growth of our AP program,” Kirk Johnson, Waukee High School Principal, said.
