BHS Class of 2008 AP Scholar Awards

Burlington High School announced today that eighteen students from the Class of 2008 have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) provides motivated 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. About 18 percent of 1.6 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.

The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams.

Five students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. These students are Nazim Khalifa, Siddhartha Narayanan, Advait Shah, Jason Steinbach and Usamah Suhrawardy.

Six students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. The students are: Eeshan Kabir, Angela Milinazzo, Daniel O’Connell, Wendy Simon Pearson, Rishi Soni and Kevin Vibert.

Seven students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are: Samuel Burkhart, Danica Burt, Jaclyn Casey, Ida Chelengar, Kathleen Hong, Henisha Patel and Mary Alice Perdichizzi.
