Four students at Central Union High School have been named Advanced Placement Scholars by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on college-level AP exams.
Only about 13 percent of the more than 840,000 students in 13,680 schools who took AP exams in May 2001 performed at a sufficiently high level to merit such recognition.
Students take AP exams in May after completing challenging college-level courses at their high schools. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on the number of year-long courses and exams (or their equivalent semester-long courses and exams).
The four students who qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP examinations with grades of 3 or higher are Jose Beltran, Marc Manix, Rachel Pritchard and Jesus Terazon.
