Three hundred twenty-nine D. 202 students named 2020 AP Scholars

Three hundred twenty-nine District 202 high school graduates and current students have been named 2020 AP Scholars based on their performance on the Advanced Placement exams given during the 2019-2020 school year.

District 202 students notched an average score of 3.0 out of  possible five, among all students who took at least one AP exam. Most students took more than one AP exam.

District 202 recorded 104 AP Scholars in 2010, the first year that students from all four high schools took AP exams. 

This year’s group includes 11 students named National AP Scholars, the highest Scholar designation. 

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

District 202 has worked for several years to empower and encourage students to take more challenging courses. 

Those efforts include offering more AP courses, increasing access to those classes and provided additional support to students who choose to take them.  In 2006, District 202 offered only four AP courses. District 202 now offers 27 AP courses. 

Students do not have to take the AP exams associated with their courses, but most do. Students may earn college credit for their subject area by taking the tests for their AP classes. As well, the testing program helps district staff to gauge how effectively the courses are being taught.

This year’s results follow major initiatives implemented over the last several years to improve high school achievement, including increasing the number of more challenging courses; making it easier for more students to take such courses; and eliminating some lower-level classes, among numerous systemic upgrades.

BY THE NUMBERS…

The 2020 AP Scholars include: 

  • Plainfield High School – Central Campus -- 59 students
  • Plainfield South High School -- 72 students 
  • Plainfield North High School -- 107 students 
  • Plainfield East High School -- 91 students

    • This year, District 202 had 168 AP Scholars. 
  • 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.

  • 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 95 AP Scholars with Distinction. 

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.
