North Forsyth students receive AP Scholar Awards


September 30, 2013
FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — After taking Advanced Placement exams in the spring of 2013, 108 students at North Forsyth High School earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement.

The number of awards received is a 29 percent increase from the 2011-12 school year.

The College Board's Advanced Placement Program (AP) and North Forsyth High School provide students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses, earn college credit, advanced placement or both for the AP exams.

The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students' performance on AP exams.

Of the 108 students at North Forsyth High School, seven qualified for the National AP Scholar Award, the highest level of achievement, by earning an average score of 4 or higher on a five-point scale on all AP exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.

Those students are: Jacob Flynn, Christina Hansen, Dru Horne, Robert Oldham, Benjamin Riseman, Justin Wallace and Jonathan Tabor.

Research shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP exams typically experience greater academic success in college and have higher college graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.
