188 Students named AP Scholars by the College Board

South Washington County Schools

One hundred and eighty-eight high school students in South Washington County Schools have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP (Advanced Placement) exams. The College Board's Advanced Placement Program (AP) provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the more than 1.9 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students' performance on AP Exams. East Ridge High School's Thomas Bearrood qualified for the National AP Scholar Award by earning an average score of 4 or higher on a five-point scale on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.
