Campbellsport High School Placed on the College Board's 5th Annual AP® District Honor Roll for Significant Gains in Student Access and Success
Campbellsport High School is one of 547 school districts in the U.S. and Canada being honored by the College Board with placement on the 5th Annual AP® District Honor Roll for increasing access to APcourse work while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. 2014 is a milestone year for the AP District Honor Roll, and more districts are achieving this objective than ever before. Reaching these goals indicates that the district is successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are ready for the opportunity of AP. Since 2012, Campbellsport High School has increased the number of students participating in AP while improving the number of students earning AP Exam scores of 3 or higher.
Out of the 547 schools nationwide that were recognized, Campbellsport High School was one of only 27 high schools in the state of Wisconsin honored. Campbellsport High School was also the only school in Fond Du Lac County, the Eastern Wisconsin Conference, and the new East Central Conference to be named on the 5th Annual AP® District Honor Roll. “Our AP Equity and Excellence numbers show that roughly 19% of last year’s graduating class scored a 3 or higher on at least one AP exam at any point during their high school career,” states Campbellsport Middle-High School Principal Todd Hencsik. “Last year we also broke school records in following areas: Number of AP students (64), number of AP exams taken (81), and number of AP students with scores of 3 or higher (45). Congratulations to our staff and students for their outstanding work in achieving this prestigious honor.”
Inclusion on the 5th Annual AP District Honor Roll is based on the examination of three years of AP data, from 2012 to 2014, looking across 34 AP Exams, including world language and culture. The following criteria were used.
Increase participation/access to AP by at least 4 percent in large districts, at least 6 percent in medium districts, and at least 11 percent in small districts;
Increase or maintain the percentage of exams taken by African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native students; and
Improve performance levels when comparing the percentage of students in 2014 scoring a 3 or higher to those in 2012, unless the district has already attained a performance level at which more than 70% of its AP students are scoring a 3 or higher.
Campbellsport High School Receives Prestigious W!SE Blue Star School Recognition
Campbellsport High School received the Working in Support of Education (W!SE) Blue Star School recognition for the 2013-14 school year. Each of students in our Personal Finance course took the W!SE Financial Literacy certification test last year. To be recognized as a Blue Star School, 75% or higher of the students must pass the test and have either a majority of students on a given grade level take the test or have the students who took the test achieve an average of 80% or higher. This is no small feat, as Campbellsport was one of only ten schools in Wisconsin to achieve Blue Star School status.
"I am extremely proud of our students who took the test and received the certification,” states Ms. Katie Peterson, Campbellsport Business Education teacher. “Financial literacy is a very important skill for everyone to have. This news gives me the confidence that CHS graduates are leaving high school financially literate and will continue to make smart financial decisions as they move forward beyond high school."
Campbellsport High School would like to congratulate the students who took the W!SE Financial Literacy certification test. We would also like to recognize the teachers in our Business Education Department for giving these students the vital knowledge about personal finance and the tools they need to become financially capable young adults.

Two Named as National Merit Semifinalists
Tanis Kneevers and Oscar Hathaway named National Merit Semifinalists in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program
Campbellsport's Tanis Kneevers and Oscar Hathaway were two of the Nation's 16,000 Semifinalists in the 60th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth about $33 million that will be offered next spring. Tanis and Oscar must fulfill several requirements such as crafting an essay and uploading various documents to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and more than half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.
The Campbellsport School District would like to congratulate Tanis and Oscar, their parents, and their teachers on this prestigious recognition.
