Congratulations to Herricks High School junior Carolyn Lau for scoring a perfect score level 5 on the Advanced Placement Spanish Language and Culture Exam. A Language Immersion program student, Carolyn took the exam last May as a sophomore, two years earlier than what is typically expected.
Trevor Packer, the head of the Advanced Placement program, recently wrote to Carolyn that her performance was so superior that it falls into an extremely select category.
Additionally, Carolyn is one of only 77 students out of more than 146,646 test-takers from around the world to earn every point possible on this challenging, college-level examination, which places her in the top 0.05%.
Herricks applauds Carolyn on her mastery of the content and skills of this AP course and wish her many future successes.
