Highlighting the school’s strong academic achievements, the College Board has recognized 23 Islip seniors as AP Scholars for 2015. AP courses are graded on a scale of 1 to 5, with a score of 3 or above qualifying high school students for college course credit.

Through its Advanced Placement Program, the College Board presents several levels of AP Scholar Awards honoring top students who demonstrate outstanding college-level achievement via AP courses and exams. Each of the honorees – whose achievements will be noted in AP score reports sent to prospective colleges – received an award certificate.

Wendy Tully-Gustafson was named a National AP Scholar, a category reserved for students who received an average score of at least 4 on all AP exams taken and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.

Four of Islip’s Class of 2016 – Schuyler Dineen, Brian Lithen, Christian Novarro and Tully-Gustafson – were awarded the title of AP Scholar with Distinction, given to students who received an average score of at least 3.5 on their AP exams and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.

Nine students – Brandon Chungata, Thomas DePaola, Sean Dineen, MacKenzie Dymek, Samuel Klomp, Larry Saperstein, Lauren Schadt, Connor Sharpe and Amber Yildizel – were named AP Scholars with Honor, receiving an average score of at least 3.25 on all of their AP exams and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of those exams.

The school also boasted 10 AP Scholars, who received scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams: Cheyenne Coughlin, Daniel Croteau, Emily Curran, Daniela Dacunto, Hannah Flynn, Julianna Lizzul, Joshua Narvaez, Zeynep Okul, Jesus Ore and Perianne Smith.
