THOMASVILLE - 2021 Advanced Placement (AP) exam scores have been released, and Brookwood School students performed well.
AP courses are classes that are taken in high school, but taught at the college level. At the end of the course, students take an AP exam, and based on the result of that exam, can earn college credit. A score of 3 or better on the AP exam’s 5-point scale is sufficient to earn credit at most colleges and universities.
In addition to the strong performance of Brookwood students overall, a total of 27 Brookwood students earned special recognition as AP Scholars, AP Scholars with Honor, and AP Scholars with Distinction.
To earn recognition as an AP Scholar a student must earn a score of 3 or better on three or more Advanced Placement exams. Brookwood’s AP Scholars for 2021 are Will Bryant '22, Fincher Davis '21, Abigail Middleton '21, Taylor Middleton '22, Emmett Miles '21, Bailey Noah '21, and Will Tinney '21.
To be designated as an AP Scholar with Honor, a student must earn scores of 3 or better on at least four Advanced Placement exams, and score an average of 3.25 or higher on all AP exams taken.
