Leeds High School Named School of Distinction | The Advanced Placement Program has earned Leeds High School recognition as one of two schools statewide to be named Schools of Distinction. Four school years ago, LHS initiated teaching the Advanced Placement college level courses in six subjects. This program provided the ability for a student to take an AP course, earn a “qualifying score” and be eligible to receive college credit for their efforts. Each school in Alabama was required to set goals for qualifying scores. LHS set their goal at 20.

In 2016, there were 38 qualifying scores. In 2017 there were 48 qualifying scores and in 2018 there were 62 qualifying scores which far exceeded their goal. In addition to this incredible success, the LHS calculus teacher led 100% of her students to receive a qualifying score for 2017 and 2018. For the Class of 2018, LHS is one of two high schools in the state to be named a School of Distinction. We are very proud of you, Leeds High School. Great job!
