MND Announces Record Number of Advanced Placement® Scholars

MND is proud to recognize its 95 Advanced Placement Scholars as identified by the College Board after the 2019-2020 school year. This is the largest number of AP Scholars in school history. Included in the 95 AP Scholars are 1 National AP Scholar, 22 AP Scholars with Distinction (including the National AP Scholar), 22 AP Scholars with Honor and 51 AP Scholars.

Achieving National Status is not an easy feat. National AP Scholars must take at least eight AP exams and receive a score of 4 or 5 (out of 5). Congratulations to MND alumna Jules Jefferson ’20 who was recognized as a National AP Scholar.

Nearly 40% of MND students took one or more AP tests during the 2019-2020 school year with over 35% earning AP Scholar status. What is even more impressive is that these testers finished their final 10 weeks of school via digital distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They were the first AP testers to take their tests digitally.

MND Principal Mrs. Karen Day commented, “MND students continue to thrive academically. These 95 students, along with the hundreds of others who earned collegiate credit, are ready to take on their next AP courses or college coursework! And, we are so proud of our students for continuing to excel during the COVID-19 environment!”
