After these two weeks of AP testing, students will take their finals over the span of the following two weeks.

All of these tests that the students will be taking are organized by Mrs. Ludwig, the testing coordinator here at ACP. This year is Mrs. Ludwig’s first year here at ACP, and in the short amount of time she has worked here, she has shown us all how amazing she is at her job. In order to organize all of the tests, Mrs. Ludwig had to work with many different organizations such as ACT, College Board, the Department of Education, and many more. When asked what her favorite part of the job is, she responded by saying “the students; being able to work with them is always fun!” While there are many enjoyable parts of her job, there are also the parts of the job that can be hard to manage; one of those times is actually right now, with state testing, ACTs, and AP exams.

A big thank you to Mrs. Ludwig and everyone else who has been helping with the testing taking place this quarter. Don’t forget to strive for the impossible and be extraordinary, Go Knights!
