Ten DHS students earn AP scholar awards
Ten students at Dayton High School have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams for the 2017-18 school year.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. About 22 percent of the 2.2 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
At Dayton High School, seven students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher. Four of these students graduated with the Class of 2018 and three will graduate with the Class of 2019. The AP Scholars are Ryan Barnes, son of Sabrina Flanagan & Thomas Barnes (Class of 2019); Audrey Brown, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Jerry Brown (Class of 2018); Angela Contreras, daughter of Felix Contreras & Marisela Arevalo Contreras (Class of 2018); Federico Garcia, son of Mr. & Mrs. Federico Garcia (Class of 2019); Brayant Gonzalez, son of Mr. & Mrs. Manuel Gonzalez (Class of 2019); Veneriza Guiwa, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Victor Guiwa (Class of 2018); and Andrew Hicks, son of Mr. & Mrs. Andy Hicks (Class of 2018).
