The students earned debit cards worth $100 for each passing score on the AP exam, provided it was a three, four or five.
The money comes from the Arkansas AIMS program, designed to award achievement in math, science or English, and some say those high grades are a good start.
"Success in AP is going to equal success in college and success in college is going to equal a good job, particularly if you go in math and science, a good career and a lot more money in your lifetime," says Arkansas AIMS President Tommie Sue Anthony.
Jacksonville High honored students Thursday, while North Pulaski High and Mills High School
in the Pulaski County Special District will honor their students on Friday.
