Last month, the College Board released the names of the University High School students who received 2021 AP Scholar Awards. Fifty-nine Trailblazers from the 2020-21 school year, totaling nearly 20% of our school population, were honored due to outstanding academic results on their AP exams.
Recent graduate Garrett Smith (’21), in addition to his AP Scholar honors, received the College Board’s prestigious AP International Diploma.
