60 Oakridge Students Receive AP Scholar Awards
Posted 09/18/2019 04:16PM

Sixty students at The Oakridge School have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level 2019 Advanced Placement Program (AP) Exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement 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. About 25 percent of more than 2.8 million high school students in more than 26,000 secondary schools worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar. At The Oakridge School 34 percent of the students who took AP Exams were named AP Scholars.

Students took AP Exams in May 2019 after completing challenging college-level courses in the Upper School. In 2018-2019, The Oakridge School offered Advanced Placement courses in Art History, Biology, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Chemistry, Comparative Government and Politics, Computer Science A, English Language and Composition, English Literature and Composition, European History, French Language, Physics I, Physics C: Mechanics, Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism, Spanish Language, Spanish Literature, Statistics, Studio Art 2D and 3D, United States Government and Politics and United States History.
