Fifteen Blaine high school students earn AP awards

Fifteen Blaine high school students have earned AP scholar awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement program (AP) provides motivated 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 18 percent of the 1.6 million students worldwide who took AP exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP scholar award.

The board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP exams.

Four 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 three or higher on five or more of these exams. These students are Alexandra Dolk, Michelle Halpin, Patrick Mulholland, and Kieran Lyons.

One student 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 three or higher on four or more of these exams. This student is Blake Stanovich.

Ten students qualified for the AP Scholar award by completing three or more AP exams with grades of three or higher. The AP scholars are Samuel Conway, Catherine Dimalla, Daniel Dougan, Cameron Ellis, Mallory Lynch, Alison Raine, Karanvir Singh, Jackson Struthers, Nathan Tewalt, and Gordon Yung
