Lewis-Palmer School District 38 is in the top three percent of districts in the nation in providing Advanced Placement courses for high school students.

It is the only district in Colorado that is on the College Board’s  Advance Placement Honor Roll for the fourth consecutive time, and is the only district in El Paso County to receive the designation this year, according to Robin Adair, D-38 spokeswoman.

The district’s two high schools, Lewis-Palmer and Palmer Ridge offer approximately 16 advanced courses including European history, government, Spanish, Chemistry, Literature, statistics, and calculus.

“We have very talented educators who are able to teach these advanced courses, and a growing number of students who are enthusiastic to take on the challenge” said Superintendent John Borman in a news release.
