Last year 36% of the 99 Maumee Valley students who sat for Advanced Placement exams last spring have been designated AP Scholars by The College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced-Placement (AP) Program Exams. Nationally, only about 18% of the more than 1.8 million high school students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar.
Due to the rigorous nature of the Maumee Valley curriculum, it is usually recommend that students take no more than three AP courses per year. However, if a student wishes to take a more challenging course load, meetings with advisors and the college counselor are easily arranged. Also, if your child wishes to take an AP exam that isn’t offered as a class, an order can be placed for that specific exam. However, the student’s test prep will have to be accomplished outside the classroom.
Last year 37 MVCDS students were designated as AP Scholars. One qualified as a National AP Scholar, 11 as AP Scholars of Distiniction, 5 as AP Scholars with Honors, and 20 as AP Scholars.
