Over 100 Webb School Students Earn AP Scholar Awards

Webb School of Knoxville emphasizes a world-class college preparatory curriculum that empowers students to stretch their individual strengths and interests while getting a leg up on what lies ahead in college. The Advanced Placement (AP) Program, sponsored by the College Board, has long played a central role in that effort, and for more than 60 years, Webb has provided a wide menu of AP courses for students to do college-level work and receive college credit for their AP exam performances. Webb School currently offers over 25 AP courses.

This year, the College Board announced that 103 Webb School students, both current and graduates from the Class of 2019, earned AP Scholar Awards with eight Spartan students achieving national ranking. The average score of Webb’s award winners was an exemplary 3.68 on a 5-point scale.

In May 2019, 190 Webb Upper School students sat for 503 AP exams. Eighty-eight percent of those students achieved a score of 3 or higher, which included 76 scores of 5 and 153 scores of 4. Over the past five years, an average of 86 percent of Webb AP students have earned a score of 3 or higher on their AP exams.

The College Board’s 2019 AP Scholar report is based on students’ exceptional cumulative scores on college-level Advanced Placement (AP) Program Exams. The Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ results on AP Exams.
