Dist. 202 Scores Record Number of AP Scholars

Forty-nine of them go to Plainfield South High School, which is attended by a large number of Joliet residents.

District 202 issued this news release on its 2013 AP Scholars. Forty-nine of them go to Plainfield South High School, which is attended by a large number of Joliet residents.

A record-high 231 District 202 high school graduates and current students have been named 2013 AP Scholars based on their performance on the Advanced Placement exams given during the 2012-2013 school year.

The 231 AP Scholars – including eight students who earned the highest Scholar designation (double last year’s number) -- is up 68 students, or 42 percent from last year’s 163 AP Scholars. This is the most AP Scholars ever for District 202.

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program lets motivated and academically prepared high school students take challenging, college-level courses and get college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP Exams.

District 202 has increased the number of AP classes offered, increased access to those classes and provided additional support to students who choose to take them, he said.  In 2006, District 202 offered only four AP courses. This year District 202 offers 24 AP courses.

The 2013 AP Scholars include:  
  • 46 Plainfield High School – Central Campus students, up from 42 last year;
  • 49 Plainfield South High School students, up from 35 last year;
  • 75 Plainfield North High School students, up from 50 last year;
  • 61 Plainfield East High School students, up from 36 last year.

The AP Scholar Awards are given at four levels:

  • AP Scholars earned at least a 3 (out of a possible five) on three or more AP exams. This year, District 202 had 129 AP Scholars, up from 79 last year.
  • AP Scholars with Honor earned an average grade of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. This year, District 202 had 45 AP Scholars with Honor, up from 40 last year.
  • AP Scholars with Distinction earned an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.  This year, District 202 had 57 AP Scholars with Distinction, up from 44 last year.
  •  National AP Scholar status is granted to students in the United States who earn an average score of at least 4 on all AP exams taken and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams. This year, District 202 had eight National AP Scholars, four more than last year.
