AP exams are developed by the College Board, using a committee of college and AP teachers, and are aligned with the same high standards expected by college faculty. Research shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP Exams (based on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest) typically experience greater academic success in college and higher graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.

I am certain all of the Port Chester residents are very proud of these bright hard working students and the many others who are also good achievers. I always thought my ex Alma Mater is one of the best scholastic achievers in all subjects as well as music and sports. Also let us not forget the excellent teaching staff.Congratulations to the students & staff.

For the money per student per year taxpayers are dishing out, there should be a lot more names on this list. That goes for just about every public school district in the nation.
