Hudson High School graduates are already onto the next phase of their lives but for some there is still one more high school accomplishment to note.

The school was recently notified by the College Board's Advanced Placement Program of exceptional performances by numerous HHS graduates in advanced placement courses they took while in high school. Advanced placement courses are taught at the college level and can earn college credits for successful performance on AP exams.

The board recognizes several levels of achievement on the AP exams. To qualify as an AP Scholar a student must complete three or more AP exams with scores of 3 or higher. HHS AP Scholars were:
