ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – More New Mexico students than ever before are taking and passing AP courses.

AP classes are rigorous, college-level courses that give students an opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school.

Since 2010, students in the state are taking 63 percent more Advanced Placement exams and more than twice as many students are taking AP courses.

The state is also expanding online AP courses so more rural students can access the program too.
