Nineteen students at Blaine high school 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 College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams.

One  student, Alexandra Dolk, qualified for the National AP Scholar Award by earning an average grade of 4 or higher on a five-point scale on all AP exams taken, and grades of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.
Three 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 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. These students are Alexandra Dolk, Michelle Halpin, and Gordon Yung 

Three students 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 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. These students are Lindsy Breckenridge, Catherine Dimalla, and Tyson Foster.

Thirteen students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Tyler Bellville, Dylan Blake, Odinn Johannesson, Matthew Miller, Shayne Moore, Kyle Olason, Cody Richardson, Stephanie Robisnson, Karanvir Singh, Aaron Steelquist, Chelsea Ulrich, Jeffry Weltzer and Marcus Yu.
