More than 130 current and former Bethpage High School students have been recognized by the College Board as AP Scholars due to their outstanding success on Advanced Placement exams. Students took the exams in May after completing challenging, college-level courses in a variety of subjects.
 
According to the College Board’s website, the AP Program offers willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to take college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP exams. 

The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on these exams, including AP Scholar, AP Scholar with Distinction, AP Scholar with Honor and National AP Scholar. 

Fifty-six students who received a score of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams were acknowledged as AP Scholars. AP Scholar with Distinction status was granted to 56 students who received 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. Twenty students were named AP Scholars with Honor for 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. Eight students received the distinction of National AP Scholar for obtaining an average score of at least 4 on all AP exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.

The district commends these students for this impressive academic achievement.
