VCS is proud to announce that two Senior High students, Alexander Bhalla (grade 11) and Levi Larsen (grade 12) earned a perfect score on the Computer Science subject of the college-level Advanced Placement® (AP®) Exam in spring 2022.
Bhalla and Larsen were two out of only 369 students in the world to earn every point possible on the AP Computer Science exam. Victor Senior High School Computer Science teacher, Chris Wuest, said "It has been a true honor to work with both Xander and Levi over the last two years. What impressed me most about them is their ability not only to master the content but always their willingness to help their peers out. I couldn't be prouder of both Xander and Levi.”
According to Wuest, out of the forty-four VSH students who took AP Computer Science last year, twenty-two scored a five and thirty-three students scored a four or higher.
“AP courses and exams are college-level, requiring great focus and persistence among participating students,” said Trevor Packer, head of the Advanced Placement Program. “We applaud the educators who encourage students to challenge themselves, who motivate and encourage diverse students to achieve their academic potential.”
The Advanced Placement Program is committed to ensuring that students have access to the opportunities they have earned. Students who succeed in AP are not only more likely to succeed in college but have the chance to save a significant amount of time and money by earning college credit or placement.
Colleges and universities around the world receive AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, and/or consideration in the admission process. To learn more about AP, please visit exploreap.org.
