St. Mary’s County Public Schools Students Receive AP® Scholar Awards

October 31, 2012

St. Mary’s County is proud to report that 59 students at Chopticon High School, 72 students at Great Mills High School, and 131 students at Leonardtown High School have earned AP® Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP® Exams for the 2012 school year. “The students earning this recognition represent the most academically able students in St. Mary’s County Public Schools,” stated Dr. Michael J. Martirano, Superintendent of Schools. “When these gifted learners are taught by our excellent AP instructors, the results speak for themselves.”

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. About 20 percent of the 2.1 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 students’ performance on AP® Exams.

Two students at Chopticon High School, five students at Great Mills High School, and six students at Leonardtown High School qualified for the National AP® Scholar Award by earning an average score of four or higher (on a five-point scale) on all AP® Exams taken, and scores of four or higher on eight or more of these exams.

Of this year’s award recipients at Chopticon High School 16 are sophomores or juniors, at Great Mills High School 25 are sophomores or juniors, and at Leonardtown High School 63 are sophomores or juniors. These students have at least one more year in which to complete college-level work and possibly earn a higher-level AP® Scholar Award.

Through 34 different college-level courses and exams, AP® provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit or advanced placement and stand out in the college admission process. Each exam is developed by a committee of college and university faculty and AP® teachers, ensuring that AP® Exams are aligned with the same high standards expected by college faculty at some of the nation’s leading liberal arts and research institutions. More than 3,800 colleges and universities annually receive AP® scores. Most four-year colleges in the United States provide credit and/or advanced placement for qualifying exam scores. Research consistently shows that AP® students who score a three or higher on AP® Exams (based on a scale from one to five, with five being the highest) typically experience greater academic success in college and have higher college graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP®.
