During the 2020-21 school year, 52 Darlington students earned the designation of AP Scholar by The College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program exams.
This does not include students who took the AP Exam in June.
“We are a relatively small school with a senior class of only 116 students and these numbers reflect highly on our college-preparatory program,” said Chad Woods, director of Upper School.
The College Board’s AP Program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school, and to receive college credit, advanced placement or both. Students took the AP exams in May 2020.
Nine students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams: Weizhe Feng, Angelina A. Laramie, Xiang Lian, Brock C. Lignell, Jonathan Murphy, Robert L. Pearson, Mary E. Prusakowski, Oluwasiji O. Soetan, and Bojun Zhang.

Aultman, Belle A. Brooks, Yihan Cui, Kathryn R. Davidson, Gry Son J. Davis, Riccardo Frisiani, and Yutong Wu.
