The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) provides motivated and academically prepared students the opportunity to take challenging 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 22 percent of the more than 2.2 million high school students who took AP Exams merited the recognition of AP Scholar.
The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams. At Sheridan High School:
Caleb Hoopes qualified for the National AP Scholar Award by earning an average score of at least 4 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.
Eight students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning 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. These students are: Heather Bergey, Zachary Campbell, Liam Casey, Anastasia Giljum, Caleb Hoopes, Tyler Myers, Jaxon Porterfield, and Janika Sweeney.
Nine students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. These students are Alexandra Bammel, Katie Beardslee, Heather Belus, Olivia Boley, Katherine Campbell, Mackenzie Dougherty, Sidney Jensen, Kael Sweeney, and Madison Wilkerson.
Eighteen students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams, with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Davis Alden, Laura-Louise Alicke, Luke Burrell, Cheyenne Buyert, Robert Culver, Addison Dugal, Julia Fenn, Blake Godwin, Brock Gransbery, Samantha Hamilton, Liam Jones, Paden Koltiska, Dale McCuistion, Helen Patten, Zachary Petersburg, Tyra Relaford, Xiomara Robinson, and Evan Staben.
AP provides motivated and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit or advanced placement and stand out in the college admissions process. AP is accepted by more than 3,600 colleges and universities worldwide for college credit, advanced placement, or both on the basis of successful AP Exam grades. Research consistently shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP Exams (based on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest) typically experience greater academic success in college and higher graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.
