71 Owls Soar in AP Exams

Since its inception in 1955, the AP program has been based on the premise that qualified juniors and seniors are capable of college-level work, and that such achievement should be rewarded by advanced placement and/or college credit.

Students at MUS have been among the nation’s top Advanced Placement performers since the school began participating in 1963, and this year was no different. In May the school administered 318 AP exams to 145 students, and 90% of tests taken by MUS students resulted in a score of 3 or higher. Students earned a 4 or 5 on 68% of the tests.
A committee of readers representing colleges and secondary schools graded the exams. Once the results were tallied, 22 Owls from the Class of 2021 and 17 from the Class of 2022 qualified for AP Scholar with Distinction recognition.

Thirty-nine students earned this top honor, which is granted to students who receive 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.
