The Daviess County Public Schools district is proud to announce that five students have been recognized by the College Board for their exceptional achievements on the college-level AP Exams. Students take AP Exams in May after completing challenging college-level courses at their high schools. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement, based on the number of courses and exams.
Five members of the DCPS Class of 2017 achieved the significant level of recognition as National AP Scholars – an elite honor awarded to students who receive an average score of at least 4 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of those exams.
Representing Apollo High School are Joshua Hay and Olivia Wright.
Representing Daviess County High School are Robert Mason Clark, William Max Smith and Stephen Ward.
Most of the nation’s four-year colleges and universities award credit, advanced placement, or both based on successful performances on the AP Exams. More than 1,400 institutions award a full year’s credit to students presenting a sufficient number of qualifying grades.
