Fifty-three IHA Students Earn AP® Scholar Designation

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 end-of-course AP® Exams. Students took AP® Exams in May 2019. In order to be designated as an AP Scholar by the College Board, a student must earn a score of 3 or higher on the AP scale of 1-5.

Of the 275 AP exams taken by IHA students this past May, 239 achieved scores of 3 or higher. Scores of 5 were achieved on a total of 86 AP exams, scores of 4 were achieved on a total of 84 AP exams, and scores of 3 were achieved on a total of 66 AP exams. IHA students scored above the mean average in the May 2019 AP exams for both the state of New Jersey and also globally in the following subjects: Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Statistics, English Language & Composition, English Literature & Composition, US History, Comparative Government & Politics, Psychology, Chemistry, Biology, Physics C/Mechanics, Environmental Science, Spanish Language & Composition, and Studio Art 2-D. One hundred percent of the students taking the Calculus AB, Calculus BC, English Language, English Literature, US History, Spanish Language & Culture, and Studio Art 2-D exams scored a 3 or better.

Kaitlin Brown’19, the Class of 2019 Valedictorian now at Columbia University, achieved National AP Scholar status by “achieving scores of 4 or higher on at least eight AP exams” and “whose average AP exam grade is at least a 4.0.” Kaitlin took nine AP exams in 2019 and her average grade was 4.78. Fifteen students earned AP Scholars with Distinction, nine were named AP Scholars with Honor, and 28 students were designated AP Scholars. Congratulations to:
