One hundred and fifteen exceptional students from Lynbrook High School’s class of 2019 and 2020 were recently designated as Advanced Placement Scholars, a new record for the school. Forty one of the 115 students are from the Class of 2020. Earning this distinction showcases a student’s college readiness level. The College Board awards it to those who achieve exceptional scores on the college-level Advanced Placement exams.
The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on a student’s performance on AP exams. A total of 49 were recognized as AP Scholars, 32 students were named AP Scholars with Distinction, 22 were named AP Scholars with Honor, and 12 members of the Class of 2019 were designated as National AP Scholars.
The AP Scholar Award recognizes students who receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams. Those recognized as AP Scholars with Honor must earn an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. To earn the status of an AP Scholar with Distinction, a student must receive an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. The National AP Scholar Award, the highest honor, is given to students who receive an average score of at least a 4 on all AP exams taken and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.
The district congratulates these students for their outstanding achievement and for all their hard work and dedication.
