Two students at Newport High School 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. Nathan May, son of Anthony and Lisa May, qualified for the AP Scholar award. This award is granted to the students who have received scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams. Nathan is a senior this year. 

Jacey Poplawski , daughter of Tony and Karla George, qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction. This award is granted to students who receive an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.  Newport High School is so proud of this great accomplishment and wishes them well in their educational endeavors.
