IHS Students Named Advanced Placement Scholars

Sixteen students at Islip High School have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement (AP) Program 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 Exam. Students at Islip High School took their AP Exams in May 2011 after completing their courses during the school year. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on these exams, and Islip students were among the top ranked.

Two students, Peter Schuessler and Robert Stone, were named AP Scholars with Honor by earning an average of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, with scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. An impressive 12 students were recognized with the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with grades of 3 or higher. These accomplished recipients include: David Currea, Alexandra D'Acunto Isabella Eccleston, Edward Ednie, Rebecca Goess, Giovanni Mayo, James Pedersen, Montana Prechtl, Maliha Rahman, Natalia Scollo, Frances Sosa, Anna Tashie, Amanda Tirado, and Catherine Weston.
