The College Board has released the AP School Scholar Roster and it includes 30 Floyd County students earning AP Scholar Awards. These teens were recognized for their exceptional achievement on AP Exams for 2015. 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. Students can earn college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. Only 18 percent of students worldwide earn an AP Scholar Award each year.

The College Board recognizes three levels of achievement based on a students’ performance on AP Exams.

AP Levels of Achievement: 

•  AP Scholar: Granted to students who receive grades of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams

•  AP Scholar with Honor: Granted to students who receive an average grade of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of the exams

•  AP Scholar with Distinction: Granted to students who receive an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of the exams

Armuchee High had the most AP honorees with 17 total.  Armuchee also had the most AP Scholars with Honor with five.  Armuchee, Model and Pepperell each had one AP Scholar with Distinction.  Armuchee High’s average score was 3.23 with senior Aleya Haney posting the highest average on four AP exams.  Coosa High’s average score was 2.67 with 2015 graduate Devin Rhodes scoring the highest average on six exams.  Model High’s average score was 3.14 with 2015 graduate Jacob Stewart posting the highest average on five exams.  Pepperell High’s average score was 3.42 with senior Daniel Lovell earning the highest average on four exams.
