The district is proud to announce that the College Board has designated 68 students, both current and recently graduated, as Advanced Placement Scholars.

This year, 27 students earned the title of AP Scholar for receiving scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams; 15 were named AP Scholars with Honor for earning an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams; and 26 were named AP Scholars with Distinction for earning an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. Of these scholars, seven students also earned the highest recognition of National AP Scholar for receiving 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.

The high school’s AP program, which has grown in popularity and course offerings over the past several years, includes a variety of courses that engage students in intense discussions, problem-solving concepts and collaborative activities. In addition, AP courses and exams give students the opportunity to earn college credit and priority placement so that they stand out in the college admissions process. In 2007, 106 BBP students were enrolled in the high school’s AP courses. During the 2014-15 school year, that number rose to 258 students. During the same time frame, the number of students scoring 3 or higher on the associated exam grew from 143 to 381.  

Principal Dr. Gaurav Passi extended his congratulations to the students on their tremendous efforts and noted that their “Advanced Placement coursework required a great deal of commitment and perseverance.”
