AP Scholars Honored

The Glen Cove Board of Education and Glen Cove High School (GCHS) administration recently honored students who were named Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars for the 2011-12 school year. Certificates were awarded by GCHS Principal Dr, Joseph Hinton and Assistant Principals Sheryl Goodine and Allen Hudson to those AP Scholars who were in attendance at the January 9 Board meeting. The ceremony is scheduled every January when many of AP Scholars who have already graduated return to Glen Cove while still on college break.

The College Board named 28 former and current Glen Cove High School students as AP Scholars this fall following their successful performance on the AP Exams. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams.

AP Scholars scoring 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams are: Heather Artinian, Lorraine Ballero, Carly Baron, Ariana Cavallone, Remi Farnan, Alex Filippone, Rina Hernandez, Robert MacDonald, Erin McCabe, Lazar Mirkovic, Briana Moglia, Julia Oh, Edward Reyes-Benigno, Christian Ring, Viola Sawyer, Aaron Sylver, Bryon Wilkins, and Kellie Williams.

AP Scholars with Honor with an average score of 3.25 or higher on all AP Exams or 3 or higher on four or more exams are: Alison Abrams, Elias Blinkoff, Nicholas Manzione, Jakub Micko, Risa Nagel, and Eduardo Silva.

AP Scholars with Distinction with an average score of 3.5 of higher on all AP Exams or 3 or higher on five or more of these exams are: Alexandra Gerin, Rahul Nath, Katherine Serrano, and Gorov Sodhi.

Through 34 different college-level courses and exams, AP provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit or advanced placement and stand out in the college admission process. Each exam is developed by a committee of college and university faculty and AP teachers, ensuring that AP Exams are aligned with the same high standards expected by college faculty at some of the nation’s leading liberal arts and research institutions. More than 3,800 colleges and universities annually receive AP scores. Most four-year colleges in the United States provide credit and/or advanced placement for qualifying exam scores. Research consistently shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP Exams (based on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest) typically experience greater academic success in college and have higher college graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.
