The College Board recently announced that 175 Jericho High School students were named Advanced Placement Scholars in four categories: Scholar, Scholar with Honor, Scholar with Distinction and National Scholar.
AP Examinations, which students take in May after completing college level courses, are graded on a five-point scale. Credit, advanced placement or both, is awarded at most of the nation’s colleges and universities for grades of 3 or higher.
The College Board is a not-for-profit educational association that supports academic preparation and transition to higher education for students through the ongoing collaboration of its member schools, colleges, universities, educational systems and organizations. Jericho, in partnership with The College Board, continues to promote educational excellence for all students.
