125 Parkway Graduates and 14 Seniors Earn Advanced Placement Honors

Each year the College Board recognizes high school students who have demonstrated college-level achievement through Advanced Placement (AP) courses and exams. For the May 2004 tests, 125 graduates of Parkway High schools and 14 current seniors earned recognition from the College Board. Students take AP examinations in May after completing challenging college-level courses at their high school. They are graded on a five-point scale (five being the highest). Only about 17 percent of the more than one million high school students nationwide who took AP exams in May 2004 performed at a high enough level to merit recognition. Most of the nation’s colleges and universities award credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP exams. Three Parkway students earned the National AP Scholar designation. That honor is given to students in the United States who receive an average grade of at least four on all AP exams taken and grades of four or higher on eight or more of these exams. The students are: Central High: Joseph Pincus and Anant Vinjamoori. West High: Alex Papulis. 32 Parkway students earned the AP Scholar with Distinction designation. That honor is given to students who receive an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken and grades of three or higher on five or more AP exams.
