Wednesday, November 06, 2019

Thirty-four students at Morse 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 excellent performance on the AP Exams. 

The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams. 

At Morse High School:

Four students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning 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. These students are Sarah Berkowitz, Arius Eich, Ella Martin, and Laurel Swanson. 

Ten students 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. These students are Emily Adams, Owen Barter, Elsa Bertlesman, Corey Klein, Kaden Malcolm, Rachel Ouellette, Lorelei Pryor, Elizabeth Schotten, Abigail Sreden, and Thomas Trundy. 

Twenty students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Rosa Atienza, William Carrolton, Griffin Dever, Abigail Durgin, Helena Eich, Aria French, Hannah Goodman, Echo Griggs, Alden Harkins, Madelyn Jones-Cressey, Zachary Lay, Sydney McCarren, Emily Minott, Hayden Platteter, Ryan Reed, Emma Roth-Wells, Tyler Scorfina, Penelope Shields, Aidan Sinclair, and Zoe Sreden. 

Of this year’s Morse award recipients, seventeen are current students (see photo). These students have one more year in which to complete college-level work and possibly earn a higher-level AP Scholar Award. Morse students are able to enroll in thirteen AP courses at Morse and have access to additional online courses offered through the state funded APME program.
