Miss Hall’s students again turned in outstanding performances on the annual Advanced Placement (AP) Exams taken in May.
This year, 92 percent of the exams taken by MHS students received qualifying scores, i.e., scores of 3 or better on the exam’s 5-point grading system, according to the College Board, which oversees the AP program. Of those exams, 70 percent earned the highest scores of 4 or 5. This year, 81 MHS students sat for 172 exams in twenty-three subject areas, and 47 percent of MHS students in grades 10, 11, and 12 sat for at least one AP exam.
“Congratulations to all of our students who prepared for and took these challenging exams, and thank you to our faculty for the hard work throughout the year to make sure students are ready to take them,” said Dean of Academics and Faculty Elizabeth F. Cleary. “These are impressive results across disciplines, and they speak to the scholarly work of our students at Miss Hall’s. Well done, MHS students and faculty!”
The annual AP exams are offered each year at the conclusion of rigorous, college-level courses. Students who score at 3 or higher on the AP Exams have the opportunity to earn credit and/or advanced standing at many of the nation’s colleges and universities.
