North Students Recognized as AP Scholars

Five Sheboygan North High School students have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) Exams.

The College Board's Advanced Placement Program offers students the opportunity to take rigorous 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 18 percent of the more than 1.6 million high school students in more than 16,000 secondary schools worldwide took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar.

Students took the AP Exams in May 2008 after completing challenging college-level courses at their high schools. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on a student's performance on AP Exams.

At North High School one student, Zhexi Wang, 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.

North High student, Benjamin Simmons, 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.

Three North High students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Kristen Glodosky, Dylan Huebner and Zachary Schlieder.
