One hundred sixteen students at The Wheatley School have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program (AP) Exams.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school, and to receive college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the nearly 1.9 million high school students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
The recent Emmy awards included a winner from Roslyn. Steven Passaro, a Roslyn High School graduate from the Class of 2006 took the coveted award for his role as an associate producer for MLB Tonight.
Passaro received a national sports Emmy as the program won the prize in the Outstanding Show – Daily category.
