Dublin High School Students Excel on Advanced Placement (AP) Exams

September 12, 2012

Class of 2012 Valedictorian Andrew Song

Dublin High School’s Advanced Placement (AP) program built on the College Board developed curriculum provides college-bound students with the opportunity to experience college-level classes while in high school.

In all, 110 Dublin High students have been recognized for outstanding performance on standardized AP exams based on the most recent AP testing results (see full listing below).

Dublin High School 2012-13 Student Body President Manny Rubio on the results, “The teachers at Dublin High do a great job preparing students for college-level classes and the transition to the college curriculum. All of my friends who have gone to college have said how ready they were to be successful there because of what Dublin High School has done for them.

Dublin High School Class of 2011 graduate and City of Dublin 2010 Young Citizen of the Year Aslan Brown commented: “I have to give credit to all of my AP teachers, they definitely prepared us amazingly well. Thanks to the rigor of Dublin High School’s AP courses, I was able to enter UC Berkeley as a sophomore, I had 24 credits from my AP courses. AP courses are reflections of college courses and if a student wants to see if college is for them, because some people say ‘college is not for me’, AP courses give you an opportunity to try college while in high school. You’ll feel more confident – you’re that much more prepared going into college.”
