Five Oakville High students earn AP honors

Five Oakville Senior High School students have earned the designation of Advanced Placement Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on college-level AP exams.

The students earned this achievement by taking such college-level courses as AP calculus, AP European history and AP economics. The students took AP exams last May in these courses and scored exceptionally well. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP exams.

Lauren Miller 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. The highest score possible is 5.

Nicholas Eplin and Christopher Garner 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.

Daniel Martin and Jonathan Wacker qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP exams with grades of 3 or higher.

The College Board’s AP 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.
