College Board Recognizes 10 AWHS Students for Outstanding AP Scores

BRAINTREE, October 24––Archbishop Williams High School (AWHS) announced today that the College Board has given special recognition to ten 2012 AWHS graduates who showed outstanding achievement on the AP Exams.

Timothy Andrea of Holbrook, Brian Nguyen and Rehana Rupan of Randolph received the designation of "AP Scholar with Distinction." Students achieved an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.

Lindsey Crowley of Weymouth, Alexandra Dean of Plymouth, Ryan Flynn of Braintree, Nicole Lareau of North Easton, Andrew Mason of Randolph, and Khelsea O'Brien of Weymouth received the "AP Scholar with Honor" designation, which required an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams.

Matthew Severance of Weymouth received the designation of "AP Scholar," which is given to students who achieved an average score of at least 3 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on three or more of these exams.

"The excellence of these recent graduates speaks so loudly for itself, there is little I can add," saidPrincipal Dr. Carmen Mariano. "I could not be more proud of them, their teachers, or our school. Collectively, these scholars earned a score of 3 or higher on almost 30 separate AP exams. That is spectacular! There is no limit to how high students can soar if they take off from AWHS!" 

AWHS offers seven AP courses including Biology, Calculus, English, Environmental Science, European History, U.S. History, and Physics. In addition, AWHS students may take AP courses through the Virtual High School. This year, students are taking AP French and AP Statistics.
