Rockdale County Public Schools (RCPS) honors 119 students recently named 2017 Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars, including two National AP Scholars, for their outstanding performance on the 2017 exams.
Each year, thousands of high school students across the world take AP exams. The College Board recognizes the hard work of top students through the awarding of several distinctions: AP Scholar, AP Scholar with Honor, AP Scholar with Distinction, and National AP Scholar.
Two RCPS students received the prestigious honor of being named National AP Scholars – Andrew Bonar and Dahlia Walters. These two students, both recent graduates from the Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology, scored 4 or higher on eight or more of their AP exams and had an average score of at least a 4 on all AP exams.
Twenty-three RCPS students were recognized as AP Scholars with Distinction, which is awarded to those students who receive an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams and score 3 or higher on five or more AP exams.
