FARMINGTON – Two students at Mt. Blue High School have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program exams.

The 2006 scholars are Samantha Allen and Malina Dumas. Allen and Dumas qualified for the award by completing three or more AP examinations with grades 3 or higher.

The Advanced Placement Program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while in high school, and to receive college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP exams.

About 18 percent of the more than 1.3 million high school students in more than 16,000 secondary schools worldwide who took exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar.

Students took exams in May 2006. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on student’s performance on AP exams.
