Seniors have AP Scholar status As they complete their final round of Advanced Placement testing this month, 28 Skaneateles High School seniors already have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the AP Exams during high school. As they take this year’s AP exams, or awards will be given.
College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while in high school and to earn college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. AP Exams are administered each year in May and represent the culmination of college-level work in a given discipline in a high school setting. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams, which are scored on a scale of 1–5. About 20 percent of the 2 million students worldwide who took AP Exams in 2015 performed at a sufficiently high level to earn an AP Scholar Award. More of our seniors may join these impressive groups after this year’s testing. Already, the following seniors have the following status:

Note: Omissions can occur if a school’s code is entered incorrectly on the day of a test. If a student has received a letter from the College Board but is not on the Skaneateles list, please call and let us know so we can make the addition/correction. (It may well mean the student name appeared instead on the list of another high school).
