GOOD HOPE STUDENT HONORED FOR ADVANCED WORK

Good Hope School senior Kieran Locke has been named an Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars by the College Board in recognition of exceptional achievement on college-level AP examinations. About 13 percent of the 700,000 students who took the examinations in May performed at a level high enough to merit the recognition.
Students take the AP examinations after completing challenging college-level courses at their high schools. At Good Hope, courses are available in seven areas: art, British literature, calculus, French, Spanish, U.S. history and world literature, a release from the school stated. Kieran qualified for the award by completing at least three examinations with grades of 3 or higher.
Most American colleges and universities award credit or advanced placement, or both, based on successful performance on the AP examinations. More than 1,400 institutions award a year of credit (equivalent to sophomore standing) to entering students who present enough qualifying grades. In the recent past, Good Hope School has had students gain more than a semester's college credits for such performance.
Kieran is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Locke.
