Congratulations to senior Mitchell T., who earned a perfect score on his AP Computer Science Principles exam. He was one of only 196 students from worldwide to earn every point possible on this challenging, college-level examination.
The AP Computer Science Principles exam evaluates a student's understanding of the computational thinking practices and learning objectives outlined in the course framework. This comprehensive assessment includes the Create performance task and a culminating end-of-course exam.
High School Computer Science Teacher Danielle Maletta shared, "Mitchell is a spectacular student who always tried to find innovative ways to add things to his programming apps – he was never satisfied with the status quo. What’s more, he is kind and humble and willing to help any student struggling with their programming!"
The AP Computer Science Principles course is an introductory exploration into the expansive realm of computer science at the college level. Students learn how to design and evaluate solutions and apply computer science to solve problems through the development of algorithms and programs. Students also explain how computing innovations and computing systems work, explore their potential impacts, and contribute to a computing culture that is collaborative and ethical.
Way to go, Mitchell!
