PLAISTOW – Four Timberlane Regional High School 2007 Graduates have earned the designation of AP Scholar and one has earned the AP Scholar with Honor award by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Program (AP) Exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement 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 for successful performance on the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the more than1.3 million high school students in more than 16,000 secondary schools worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar.

Students took AP Exams in May 2007 after completing challenging college-level courses at their high schools. The College Board recognized several levels of achievement based on the number of yearlong courses and exams.

At Timberlane Regional High School, four students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Examinations, with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Brian Beaulieu son of Peter and Rene Beaulieu of Plaistow, Jonathan Carifio son of Alan and Phyllis Carifio of Plaistow, Charles Senter, son of Charles and Laurel Senter of Plaistow, and Igor Tsentalovich son of Genya and Tatiana Tsentalovich of Atkinson.

Eric Lecours qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award. The AP Scholar with Honor award is granted to students who receive 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. Eric is the son of John and Erin Lecours of Danville.

Most of the nation’s colleges and universities award credit, advanced placement, or both based on successful performance of the AP Exams. More than 1,400 institutions award a full year’s credit (sophomore standing) to students presenting a sufficient number of qualifying grades. Nine AP exams are offered at Timberlane Regional High School, in a variety of subject areas, each consisting of multiple-choice and free-response (essay or problem solving) questions (except for the Studio Art exam which evaluates students’ original artwork.
