Eleven students at Sheboygan North High School have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exception achievement on AP Exams.
The College Board's Advanced Placement (AP) Program provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the more than 1.8 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students' performance on AP Exams. At North, three students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning 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. Those students are current seniors, Kevin Chen and Brandon Pakkebier and 2010 graduate Brennan Gundrum.
Four North students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning 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. Those students are current seniors Otto Kletzien and Catherine Sattler and 2010 graduates David Britton and Aristotle Leonhard.
Four North students also qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are current senior Kaitlyn Laning and 2010 graduates Matthew Griffith, Thomas Nonnweiler, and Samantha Norman.
