Goshen High School Principal, Stephanie Walker, hit the road to visit several students and their families to celebrate student AP Exam Score success. GHS had 9 students who scored a 5 on their AP exam during the 2018-19 school year. Students and their families were honored with a surprise visit from Principal Walker who delivered a #APWarriorUp yard sign to celebrate their success. Overall, GHS had 123 passing scores of a 3, 4, or 5 on AP Exams.
What does an AP Exam Score Mean? As defined online at CollegeBoard.org, a student’s AP score indicates a measure of their achievement in college-level AP courses. This score will be used by colleges and universities to determine if they will grant credit for classes completed while in high school. If granted, this allows the student advance placement from an equivalent, entry-level course to the next course in the succession.
The score is a weighted combination of the multiple-choice and written response sections. The scale ranges from 5 to 1 and are defined as follows: 5 = extremely well qualified, 4 = well qualified, 3 = qualified, 2 = possibly qualified, 1= no recommendation. “Qualified” indicates a student has proven they are capable of doing the necessary work of a college-level introductory course in a particular subject.
Congratulations to all the Goshen High School students, their teachers and parents who work to help our students succeed! Below are the names of the 9 students scoring a 5.
