Among the recipients were 23 AP Scholars, 17 AP Scholars with Distinction and 13 AP Scholars with Honor. The College Board is recognizing these students for their exceptional achievement in the college-level Advanced Placement program. 

“AP is widely accepted as the most rigorous high school program in the country,” said Dr. Jeff Taylor, superintendent of the Norwin School District. “Our students are to be commended for their high level of achievement, as well as their determination and commitment to completing this challenging academic coursework.”

The Advanced Placement program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school. They may also receive college credit, advanced placement or both for their successful performance on the AP Exams. Students who take these courses are more likely than their peers to complete college within four years.

Norwin High School offered 18 AP courses during the 2020-21 school year. To learn more about the AP Scholar Awards, visit https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/awards-recognitions/ap-scholar-award
