The College Board has recognized five members of East Islip High School’s Class of 2013 as AP Scholars with Distinction. Seniors Brendon Bullard, Tyler D’Agostino, Justin Morena, Vincent Sheppard and Peter Zepf were recently recognized with this honor, along with 23 East Islip students who graduated in June 2012.
In order to be recognized as an AP Scholar with Distinction, a student must receive an average score of at least 3.5 on all of his or her Advanced Placement (AP) exams, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of those exams. Each AP course, which earns college credit for high school students, is graded on a scale of 1 to 5, with 3 being a passing grade.
For 2012, East Islip High School can also boast 33 AP Scholars (19 current seniors and 14 who graduated in 2012), who received scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams; 24 AP Scholars with Honor (15 current seniors and nine recent graduates), who received an average score of at least 3.5 on all of their AP exams and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of those exams; and four National AP Scholars (all members of the Class of 2012), who received an average score of at least 4 on all AP exams taken and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of those exams.
