HASLETT — When it comes to Haslett High School, it’s more than just high school classes. With the amount of college credits they offer, it’s almost as if the students are part time attending a two-year college. According to the Haslett High School website, the school is fifth-best in the state and 62nd-best in the country when it comes to college readiness. “Currently, all of our advanced placement classes offer college credit upon receiving a 3 or higher on their AP exam,” said principal Bart Wegenke. “Most of our Haslett High School students take at least two AP classes so they are at least half way through their freshman year before they begin college.”

There are students at Haslett that take enough AP classes in which they earn credit that would normally take them two years to earn at college.
