FARMINGTON — Eight students at Mt. Blue High School from the class of 2011 and two from the class of 2012 have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on Advanced Placement Program Exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program provides motivated and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while in high school. Students earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams, and tend to stand out in the college admissions process. About 18 percent of the 1.6 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.

Three students, Alexandra Allen, Gwendolyn Beacham and Rosa Cohen 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.

One student, Abigail Flanagan, qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor award by receiving an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on at least four of these exams.

Six students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP exams with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Paul Boucher, North Kay, Elija Mazza, Kayleigh Morin, Gianluca Pane and Katherine Rice.
