CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- After a year of hard work, a record number of students -- 92 -- at Croton-Harmon High School have been recognized for their Advanced Placement scores.
The College Board's AP program 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 successful performance on the AP exams.
"We are extremely proud to have a record number of AP Scholars," said CHHS Principal Alan Capasso. "Thanks to the hard work of our students and teachers, we are able to continually offer new and challenging opportunities for our students."
Five CHHS students were named National AP Scholars, by earning at least 4 on all AP exams taken and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams. These are Shelby Frazier, Alexander Kleinman, Saskia Lane, Duncan McManus and Samuel Roth.
The final score for an AP test is on a 5-point scale, assessing how qualified a student would be, to do introductory-level college coursework in that subject. A score of 5 means a student would be "extremely well qualified," a 4 means "well qualified," 3 is "qualified," 2 is "possibly qualified" and 1 is "no recommendation." Individual schools decide which scores they accept.
Twenty-four CHHS students received the AP Scholar Award with Distinction, by earning an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken and scores of three or higher on five of them.
These students include Ijangmarie Abam-Depass, Shane Andrews, Olivia Anzalone, Veronica Cho, Natalie Danett, Shelby Frazier, Marissa Gershowitz, Henry Jaensch, Alexander Kleinman, Saskia Lane, Marissa Lewis, Duncan McManus, Armand Pappas, Magdalena Roberto, Laura Rodriguez, Samuel Roth, Maggie Rothberg, Susan Rykowski, Olivia Shaw, Izabella Solarz, Griffin Stockton, Olivia Vigiletti, Loretta Violante and Hannah Wolland.
An additional 24 students were named AP Scholars with Honor, by earning an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3 on at least four of these exams.
These include Lorenzo Auslander, Megan Balemian-Spencer, Sophie Bauder, Anna Burholt, Nicholas Casieri, Rebecca Davidson, Donato Deingeniis, Sarah Fant, Alison Garbarini, Imanol Herrero, Joshua Holder, Olivia Huigens, Leif Lindholm, William Mahoney, Audrey Maxwell, Katherine Miller, Alana Mittleman, Dino Nicolari, Ivan Ozaruk, Daniel Parker, William Rickett, Sarah Seidman, Emmanuel Stok and Mary Warner.
Finally, 39 students qualified for the AP Scholar Award, by earning an average score of at least 3 on three or more AP exams. They are Frank Addeo Caroline Anson, Luke Banta, Jordan Barry, Michael Bello, Charlotte Brodie, David Carullo, Jack Carullo, Justin Crowe, Ann DiRusso, Kerry Donnelly, Jared Douglas, Hanna Drabek, Hannah Elsner, Wesley Feero, Katherine Gennarelli, Kyle Gibbons, Jacob Giordano, James Giordano, Trey Glickman, Emily Hahn, Niki Lam, Sarah Latimer, Meredith Levy, Ryan Li, Evelyn Logiudici, Laura Mastracchio, Thomas Minett, Emily Morrison, Edith Neidhart, Katja Olcott, Emily Paolicelli, Johnny Pauta, Madelynn Seruya, Zohra Shaukat, Brian Smith, Matthew Sullivan, Sarah Van Ells and Hannah Varekamp.
