TASIS The American School in Switzerland is pleased to announce that 13 students from the Class of 2015 have earned an AP Scholar Award for their excellent work on Advanced Placement exams last spring.
Six TASIS students received the highest honor, AP Scholar with Distinction, which requires scores of 3 or higher on five or more AP exams with an average score of at least 3.5. (All AP exams are scored from 1-5.) Anton Alyakin, Tomson Carroll, Mindy Chen, Gabriella Cova, Takaaki Ishii, and Peiying Zhu all earned this impressive honor.
Four students–Hailey Hibbard, Sofia Jaramillo, Miller Marcus, and Honor Sargent–were named an AP Scholar with Honor, posting scores of 3 or higher on four or more exams with an average score of at least 3.25.
Sebastian Echeverri, Elizaveta Krikun, and Arthur Pelinson Nordi scored 3 or higher on three or more exams to earn the designation of AP Scholar.
The 13 total AP Scholars and the six AP Scholars with Distinction both represent highs for TASIS in the past five years. (The College Board’s online reports only go back to 2011.)
