116 RHS Students Named AP Scholars

Six qualified for a National AP Scholar Award.

The following was posted on RPS e-News.

One hundred sixteen students at (RHS) have been named AP Scholars by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college level Advanced Placement Examinations.

About 18 percent of the more than 1.9 million high school students worldwide who took AP Examinations in May 2012 performed at a sufficiently high level to merit such recognition. Seventeen award recipients are juniors. These students have at least one more year in which to do collegelevel work, and possibly earn another Advanced Placement Award. 

The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on the students’ performance on AP exams.


  • Six students qualified for the National AP Scholar Award  by earning an average grade of 4.0 or higher on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams. 
  • Forty-five 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. 
  • Twenty 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.
  • Fifty-one students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with grades of 3 or higher.

Careful - that could be seen as exclusionary to those who didn't receive an award :-)
