Pleasant Hill, CA –  College Park High School and the Mt. Diablo Unified School District are proud to announce that  student Asher Alacar has earned a perfect score on a college-level Advanced Placement® (AP®) Exam in spring 2021.

 

Asher was one of only 356 of students in the world to earn every point possible on the AP Computer Science A Exam. Asher is a senior who has a GPA of 4.25 and has been active in Jazz Band and Wind Ensemble at the school.

 

“We were so excited to hear of Asher’s achievement on the AP Computer Science exam,” said Kevin Honey, Principal of College Park High School. “It is a credit to his hard work and the support from his math and computer science teacher Ms. Dahl.”

 

Colleges and universities around the world receive AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, and/or consideration in the admission process.

 

“AP courses and exams are college-level, requiring great focus and persistence among participating students,” said Trevor Packer, head of the Advanced Placement Program. “We applaud the educators who encourage students to challenge themselves, who motivate and encourage diverse students to achieve their academic potential.”

 

The Advanced Placement Program is committed to ensuring that students have access to the opportunities they have earned. Students who succeed in AP are not only more likely to succeed in college, but have the chance to save a significant amount of time and money by earning college credit or placement.

 

Previously, the Mt. Diablo Unified School District announced that Northgate High School students Evan Leach and Jennifer Huang also earned perfect scores on their AP Computer Science exams. Congratulations to all three stellar students!Asher
