ISM Students Recognized with AP® Scholar Awards
Ongoing impressive results on Advanced Placement (AP®) exams have consistently earned The International School of Minnesota (ISM) students the recognition of the College Board. Most recently, 22 ISM students received AP Scholar awards for their outstanding academic performance on the 2008 Advanced Placement (AP®) exams. Worldwide, on average 18% of students who take AP exams earn the distinction of being an AP Scholar. At ISM for the fourth consecutive year, more than 50% of ISM students who took APs were recognized as AP Scholars. This impressive record shows that, through its implementation of the SABIS® Educational System, ISM is providing students with solid academic foundation to gain an edge in college preparation.
The AP Program offers four different levels of AP Scholar Awards to recognize high school students who have demonstrated college-level achievement through AP courses and exams. Each level of award is tied to a student’s exam scores as well as the total number of AP exams taken. The award levels include: AP Scholar, AP Scholar with Honor, AP Scholar with Distinction, and National AP Scholar Award. The AP Scholar Awards are academic distinctions that students may cite among their credentials on applications and résumés and are acknowledged on any AP Grade Report that is sent to colleges upon application.
The International School of Minnesota, a member of the SABIS® School Network, currently, offers 17 different AP courses to its students in the high school and prepares students with the knowledge and skills to earn top results on the exams. Each year, ISM students use their strong performance on AP exams to earn credit or advanced placement at many US colleges and universities. In fact, AP can help ISM students build on the foundation of knowledge provided by the SABIS® Educational System and stand out in the college admission process and beyond.
