D230 students named Advanced Placement Scholars
Seven hundred eight Consolidated High School District 230 students were recently named Advanced Placement Scholars in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program Exams.
AP Scholars may receive college credit, advanced placement or both for their success on the exams.
Students at Sandburg, Stagg and Andrew High Schools took AP exams in May 2022 after completing challenging college-level courses.
AP exams were offered in 27 disciplines, each consisting of multiple-choice, essay, or problem-solving questions.
AP exams are graded on a 1-5-point scale (5 is the highest). Most of the nation’s colleges and universities award credit and/or placement for grades of 3 or higher, and more than 1,300 institutions award one year of credit to students with a sufficient number of qualifying grades.
The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on the number of year-long courses and exams.
- 191 students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award with an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken and scores of 3 or above on five or more AP exams.
- 89 students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honors Award with an average grade of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken and scores of 3 or above on four or more AP exams.
- 428 students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams, with grades of 3 or higher.
