PORT CHESTER, N.Y. Fourteen students from Port Chester High School earned AP Scholar Awards from the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on Advanced Placement tests last year.
About 18 percent of the 1.7 million students worldwide who took Advanced Placement Exams in the spring performed at a level high enough to also earn an AP Scholar Award, the College Board reported. The program provides motivated students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school and to earn college credit.
Three Port Chester High School graduates of the Class of 2012 were named AP Scholar with Distinction, having scored three or higher on five or more AP exams with an average test score of at least 3.5. The students are Juan Guerra, Christian Mora and Artur Szerejko.
Three Port Chester High School graduates and eight current senior students were named AP Scholars. To earn this distinction, each student received grades of three or higher on three or more AP exams. These students are: Caitlyn Celestino, Anne Marie Esposito, Jillian Ferretti, Eduardo Gonzalez, Jason Ippolito, Anika Krause, Jenny Maldonado, Nicolle Mendoza, Lukas Patrizio, Lisseth Torres and Astrid Vargas-Hernandez.
Port Chester High School currently offers 11 Advanced Placement courses to juniors and seniors.
