Longwood High School Senior Earns Perfect Score on Advanced Placement Exam

Longwood High School is pleased to share that senior Gregory Cohen earned a perfect score on a college-level Advanced Placement® (AP) Computer Science Principles Exam from May 2023.

AP exams, scored on a scale of 1-5, are intense, challenging, college-level examinations. Scoring a 5 on an AP exam is difficult enough, but receiving a perfect score is extremely rare. Gregory was one of only 459 students worldwide to earn every point possible on the AP Computer Science Principles Exam, receiving the maximum score on each portion.

"We are not only proud of Gregory's amazing accomplishment, but we celebrate our outstanding faculty and staff, who are dedicated and committed to our students and the entire Longwood community." Principal Dr. Sam Ahmed stated. "Longwood High School continues to educate all students to the highest levels of academic achievement while offering many opportunities for success."

The Advanced Placement Program is committed to ensuring students have access to the opportunities they have earned. Students who succeed in AP are more likely to succeed in college and have the chance to save a significant amount of time and money by earning college credit or placement. Colleges and universities worldwide receive AP scores for college credit advanced placement.

According to Trevor Packer, head of the Advanced Placement Program, "This outstanding accomplishment is likely a direct reflection of the top-quality education offered at Longwood High School. We applaud Gregory's hard work and the AP teachers responsible for engaging students and enabling them to excel in college-level courses."
