Watertown, NY – Immaculate Heart Central celebrates high school student Liesel Barkei for earning a perfect score on a college-level Advanced Placement® (AP®) Exam in spring 2021. Liesel was one of only 11 students in the world to earn every point possible on the AP English Language and Composition Exam in May 2021.
“Liesel is a talented and diligent student who possesses remarkable faculty of language. She is a gifted writer who persistently works to enhance her skills. Her unique insights and humor shine in her written work and have proven to be valuable assets in class discussion. While IHC values integrating our rigorous curriculum with the AP program, Liesel’s individual accomplishment is a testament to her consistent dedication to growth in writing and analysis.” – Jillan Norris, Liesel’s ELA Teacher
“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.
