The Germantown School District has a proud tradition of academic excellence, evident in its state-issued District and School Report Cards, ACT scores, AP exams, WKCE and other assessments. (see School Performance for links to some results) The most recent state report cards rated the Germantown School District and its schools as "Exceeds Expectations," with one school (Rockfield Elementary) rated as the top category of "Significantly Exceeds Exepectations."

- National Scholar: earned an average of 4 or higher on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.
- Scholar with Distinction: earned an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.
- Scholar with Honor: earned an average of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams.

The Academic Hall of Fame is installed in the senior hallway near the high school's front entrance.
