Grady, Douglass, Mays, North Atlanta and Washington High School Students Awarded 2011 AP Scholar Awards

by Tamiko Hudson, Office of High Schools

Fifty-seven Atlanta Public Schools high school students have earned the College Board’s AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the 2011AP 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. 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 achieve higher college graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.

According to the College Board, about 18 percent of the more than 1.9 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to earn an AP Scholar Award. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams.
