Letters to the editor: L-P gets A-plus for AP program

To: The L-P Board of Education
RE: My recognition of becoming an AP National Scholar.
I would not have been nearly as successful were it not for a wonderful group of teachers. In my time at L-P, I never fully realized how excellent our AP program prepares students for tests. Many of my fellow students at the University of Illinois are bitter about the poor quality of instruction in their AP classrooms. I, however, hold no such resent, because every teacher who I had strove for their students’ success.
Beyond a quality education, the AP program has given me a huge headstart to my college education. It put me on track to graduate a year early with ease, saving me much time and money.
I encourage L-P to continue to grow and foster its AP program with new students, teachers and courses because it is truly one of the best tools L-P can give to its college-bound students.

Mathew S. Halm,
