D-202 in Plainfield announces 395 AP Scholars

Plainfield – A record-high 395 District 202 high school graduates and current students have been named 2018 AP Scholars based on their performance on the Advanced Placement exams given during the 2017-2018 school year.

This year’s 395 AP Scholars is 19 more than last year’s 376 AP Scholars, which was also a record high.

District 202 recorded 104 AP Scholars in 2010, the first year that students from all four high schools took AP exams. The number of AP Scholars has increased each year.

This year’s group includes 14 students named National AP Scholars, the highest Scholar designation. There were 10 National Scholars last year.

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 25 AP courses.

Fourteen District 202 students earned National AP Scholar status (up from 10 last year):

• PHSCC graduates Sylvia Knight, Ashton Krepelka and Frank Ruane

• PSHS graduate Nicole Bayles

• PNHS graduates Thomas Daugherty, Broc Edson, Rayna Harter, Tanner Houslet and Emily Milton

• PEHS graduate Anthony Crawley, Sophie Ghahtani, Andrea Moncada, Rachel Park and Zachary Stutler.

As well, PEHS graduate Nicole Chlibovytsch earned an AP International Diploma for scoring 3 or higher on five or more AP exams in three or more subject areas.
