College Board Grants Scheck Hillel 29 AP® Scholar Awards

NORTH MIAMI BEACH - Twenty-nine (29) students at Scheck Hillel Community School have earned 2016 AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program® (AP®) provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. About 22 percent of the 2.2 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.

The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams. 

Four of the 29 Scholars qualified for the National AP Scholar Award by earning an average score of 4 or higher on a five-point scale on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams. These students are Steven Bursztyn, Sarah Dreyfuss, Ariel Gelrud and Abraham Milhem, all members of the Class of 2016 and all attending the University of Pennsylvania. 

Sixteen (16) Scheck Hillel students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. These students are Steven Bursztyn (University of Pennsylvania), Sarah Dreyfuss (University of Pennsylvania), Uriel Epelbaum (Jewish Theological Seminary-Columbia University), Ariel Gelrud (University of Pennsylvania), Daniela Hojda (University of Miami), Daniella Lanes (Florida Atlantic University), Eithan Martinez (Class of 2017), Sivanne Mendelson (University of Miami), Abraham Milhem (University of Pennsylvania), Tamar Mizrahi (Florida International University), Daniela Schmutter (University of Florida), Sarah Waxman (Class of 2017), Abigail Winograd (Class of 2017), Ilana Woldenberg (Barnard College-Columbia University), Joseph Wolf (University of Michigan) and Jordana Zackon (Class of 2017). 

Victoria Cohen-Sechter (Florida International University) qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams.     

Twelve (12) students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Daniel Assor (Class of 2017), Shana Cohen (Class of 2017), Fortunee Cohen (Florida International University), Moises Doron (Class of 2017), Shayel Encaoua (University of Miami), Mark Hanz (University of Maryland), Charles Israel (Class of 2017), Shanna Lewinsky (Class of 2017), Rochelle Lieberman (Class of 2017), Jacob Mars (University of Michigan), Harrison Mizraji (Class of 2017) and Danielle Scheck (Class of 2017). 

Scheck Hillel offers 22 AP courses, providing willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to earn college credit or advanced placement and stand out in the college admission process. Each exam is developed by a committee of college and university faculty and AP teachers, ensuring that AP Exams are aligned with the same high standards expected by college faculty at some of the nation’s leading liberal arts and research institutions. More than 3600 colleges and universities annually receive AP scores. Most four-year colleges in the United States provide credit and/or advanced placement for qualifying exam scores. Research consistently shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP Exams (based on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest) typically experience greater academic success in college and have higher college graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.
