College Board recently released the names of students who earned every possible point on an Advanced Placement Exam in May 2017, receiving the maximum score on each portion of the exam. This is an extraordinary academic feat as only 511 students in the world achieved this. This year a local student, Maria Guevara Carpio, a 2017 graduate of J.P. Stevens High School earned a perfect score on the AP Spanish Language & Culture exam. She is one of 46 students in the world to achieve this distinction.

John P. Stevens High School received a letter acknowledging this achievement which stated, "As you know, Advanced Placement Exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5, where a 5 is equivalent to a grade of A in the corresponding college course. Maria not only received the top score of 5 but was one of 46 students in the world to earn every point possible on the AP Spanish Language and Culture Exam, receiving the maximum score on each portion of the exam. This outstanding accomplishment is likely a direct reflection of the top quality education being offered at John P Stevens High School. We applaud Maria's hard work and also the AP teacher responsible for engaging students and enabling them to excel in a college-level course."

The College Board's Advanced Placement Program (AP) enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies - with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both - while still in high.

Congratulations to Maria on this outstanding accomplishment.
