Grandview grads named Colorado AP Scholars
Emily Baade and Kevin Huang, 2012 graduates of Grandview High School, have earned a State AP Scholar Award for their extraordinary performance on the 2012 Advanced Placement Exams. They are among only 108 students nationwide to receive this honor.

2012 marks the 22nd annual celebration of State AP Scholars. The College Board confers this distinction on one male and one female student in each state and the District of Columbia with scores of 3 or higher on the greatest number of AP Exams, and then the highest average score (of at least 3.5 out of 5) on all AP Exams taken. Both students representing Colorado in 2012 came from Grandview High School.

Baade took a total of 17 AP exams in 2012, including AP English Literature and Composition, AP European History, AP Micro and Macro Economics and AP Statistics, and earned a mean score of 4.94. She is now attending the University of Alabama, where she has junior status because of her Advanced Placement credits, even though she is in her first year of college. 

Huang also took 17 AP exams in 2012, including AP English Literature and Composition, AP Comparative Government and Politics, AP Chinese and AP Spanish Literature, and earned a mean score of 4.71. He is now attending the University of Colorado at Denver Medical School, where he is one of only eight freshmen selected to participate in the Medical School program, earning both undergraduate and medical school requirements.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school. In 2012, 3.7 million exams were taken by 2.1 million students at more than 18,000 high schools, including all six high schools in the Cherry Creek School District. Students received scores of 3 or higher on nearly 60 percent of these exams, potentially qualifying them for college credit, advanced placement, or both, at colleges and universities worldwide.
