A PERFECT SCORE...

Please join us in congratulating 12th grade student Christine Zhang who received a perfect score on her AP 2-D Art and Design Exam in May 2022. The Head of the Advanced Placement Program shared that "Christine's performance was so superior that it falls into an extremely select category. Advanced Placement Exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5. Christine not only received the top score of 5, but was one of only 197 students (amounting to just 0.53% of 2022 AP 2-D Art and Design Exam takers) from around the world to earn every point possible on this challenging, college-level examination." The South Brunswick School District along with College Board applaud Christine's mastery of the content and skills of this AP course and wish her many future successes ...Way to go Christine!!
