For the fourth time in six years, Rome High School has been named a
“Best High School in America”
by U.S. News & World Report for 2013.
Rome High was selected a “Silver Award” winner and ranked as the 46th high school in Georgia out of 400 high schools.
56 students at Rome High School have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams.
A total of 275 Rome High students took Advanced Placement (AP) exams this year. The students took a total of 466 exams. Both are school records.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performances on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the more than 1.9 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams.
At Rome High School:
One student qualified for the National AP Scholar Award by earning an average score of 4 or higher on a five-point scale on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams. This student is Juhi Varshney.
12 students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. These students are Kennedy Blose, Elena Diller, Robina Gallagher, Daniel Hester, Emily Hook, Jay Horton, Frank Hu, Lucy Lansing, Johnathan Mayfield, Nathaniel Tan, Juhi Varshney and Frances Wilson.
9 students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. These students are Naomi Kramer, Lohan Lizin, Peyton McElhone, Tashmina Momin, McKenna Monson, Samuel Moses, Taylor Simpson, Phillip Spratling and Laura Whitlow.
35 students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Destiny Adams, Charlynn Andrews, Paul Armstrong, Corbin Bonner, Annalee Bramlette, Georgia Bratton, Jordan Byars, Alexandra Carlton, Laura Chesnut, Katherine Clay, Kylie Copeland, Alezzandro Crow, Abbey DeVille, Dorianna Dobson, Bailey Freeman, Zoe Gardner, Enrique Gaytan, Carter Hightower, Tessa Howard, Samantha Jones, Zachary Kinsey, Sean Klasson, Diana Larios-Coxaj, Courtney Lovingood, Rebecca Matthews, Stephen McConkey, Alondra Monterrosa, Ashleigh Morris, Jennie Nicholson, Munodaishe Myamuranga, Aaron Riddle, Diana Romo, Emily Stolte, Nancy Vazquez and Jonathan Williams.
Through 34 different college-level courses and exams, AP provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit or advanced placement and stand out in the college admission process. Each exam is developed by a committee of college and university faculty and AP teachers, ensuring that AP Exams are aligned with the same high standards expected by college faculty at some of the nation’s leading liberal arts and research institutions. More than 3,800 colleges and universities annually receive AP scores. Most four-year colleges in the United States provide credit and/or advanced placement for qualifying exam scores. Research consistently 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 have higher college graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.
The College Board is a mission-driven not-for-profit organization that connects students to college success and opportunity. Founded in 1900, the College Board was created to expand access to higher education. Today, the membership association is made up of more than 5,900 of the world’s leading educational institutions and is dedicated to promoting excellence and equity in education. Each year, the College Board helps more than seven million students prepare for a successful transition to college through programs and services in college readiness and college success — including the SAT® and the Advanced Placement Program. The organization also serves the education community through research and advocacy on behalf of students, educators and schools.
Rome City Schools will begin the 2013-2014 school year on Friday, August 2. 2013.
