Kimberly High School (KHS) received a Level 1 Advanced Placement Pacesetter Award from the Wisconsin Advanced Placement Advisory Council. The Advanced Placement program allows students to tackle college-level work while still in high school. And, through taking AP Exams, students can earn college credit and placement. There is also a financial advantage to earning AP credits while in high school, which helps students and families lessen the costs of higher education.

The Pacesetter Awards are unique to Wisconsin and are earned based on the percentage of students participating in college courses combined with each student’s AP Exam scores. To be recognized as a Pacesetter Level 1 School, more than 30% of students at the school must take AP exams and more than 70% of those test-takers must receive a score of 3 or higher (students must receive a three or above to receive Advanced Placement credit).

Of Wisconsin's 514 public high schools, KHS is one of only 14 schools to be recognized with a Level 1 Advanced Placement Pacesetter Award.
