I am very proud to announce that our AP Art History class for the 2009-2010 year had an excellent showing on the results of the AP exams. Of the 12 students who took the exam, 7 earned a score of a 3 or higher. That means that 58% of our students received college credit for the course last year!
It was my first time teaching the course and I am sure there are things I could have done to improve that rate and I will look to do so going forward into this school year. Still, as educators will always admit, students have to have the desire to learn and the will to go after it. I was privileged and honored to teach such a great group of students as they really pushed themselves to do their best and pursue the best scores they could.
Of the “magnificent” 7 that passed, 3 had a score of 4 (all from the Somerset Arts Conservatory!), and 4 had a score of 3. There were 2 scores of 2 and 3 scores of 1.
Great job to everyone and don’t be a stranger – stop on by my room and scare the new AP Art History students!
