Sixteen students at NLRHS have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) 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 22 percent of the 2.2 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 Little Rock High School, one student 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. This student is senior Morgan Hows.
Fifteen students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are seniors Lakyra Banks, Mason Burns, Ashton Davis, Aurora King, and Laura Moss; and graduates, Daniel Ashcraft, Collins Brown, Ryan Eley, Kaitlyn Haynie, Abigail Woodward, Kateln Pruitt, Savannah Scott, Sarahbeth Seabaugh, Rebecca Shunn, and Will Watson.
