Muskego - Seventy-four students at Muskego High School last year earned advanced placement awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on exams in their college level courses at the end of last year.
High schools offer AP college-level courses in conjunction with the College Board. To attain college credit, students must pass an exam at the end of the year.
