Record 64 AP Scholars for BHS in 2011


Beachwood High School had a record number of Advanced Placement Scholars in 2011. The 64 total AP Scholars tops the 63 BHS had in 2009. The steady climb over the past decade is the result of enhanced student preparedness and performance on AP tests; an increase in the number of students taking AP exams; and an increase in the number of Advanced Placement course offerings, which increased to 15 for the 2011-2012 school year with an additional new course slated for next school year.

The chart above reflects the climb since 2000, and an explanation for each category is below:

AP Scholar
Granted to students who receive scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams.

AP Scholar with Honor
Granted to students who receive 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.

AP Scholar with Distinction
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.

National AP Scholar
Granted to students in the United States who receive an average score of at least 4 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.

*By definition, all National Scholars are also Scholars with Distinction, so they are not included in the total column.
