Six students at South Rowan High School have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement AP Exams.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program provides motivated and academically prepared students the opportunity to take college-level courses while in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP Exams.
Jamie Dabbs 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.
Addison Corriher, Robert Edmiston and Chase Stamey 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.
Tyler Morgan and Seth Walker qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with grades of 3 or higher.
About 18 percent of the nearly 1.7 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 student’s performance on AP exams.
Through more than 30 different college-level courses and exams, 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.
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 high graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.
