WORTHINGTON — Two students at Worthington High School have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program provides students with the opportunity to take rigorous, college-level courses while still in high school and to earn college credit for successful performance on the AP Exams.
The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams.
WHS graduate Annie Zaske 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. Zaske is the daughter of Mike and Nancy Zaske; she currently attends Carthage College.
WHS graduate Shelby Gravenhof qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher. Gravenhof is the daughter of Alan and Luann Gravenhof; she attends Winona State University.
Research consistently shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP Exams (based on a scale from 1 to 5) typically experience greater academic success in college and have higher college graduation rates than those students who do not participate in AP.
