AP Scholar Status for Elmont Memorial Students

Ninety-two students from Elmont Memorial’s Class of 2018, Class of 2019 and Class of 2020 have been named Advanced Placement Scholars by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school and to receive college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on their AP exams. Almost 18 percent of the more than 1.7 million high school students in more than 16,000 secondary schools worldwide who took AP exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar.
