The Kenston High School Giving Garden is bearing vegetables. Early this summer, high school students planted a variety of vegetables in raised beds outside the science wing of the school. Superintendent Nancy Santilli checks on some cabbage growing in the garden.

Students earn AP honors

The College Board recognized Kenston High School students for their achievements on the college-level Advanced Placement Program exams. The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program offers students the opportunity to take college-level courses while still in high school. In addition, they can receive college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP exams. About 18 percent of more than 1.6 million high school students nationwide took AP exams and performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar.

AP designations include: 12 National AP Scholars who earned 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; 56 students who earned AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken and grades of 3 or higher on five or more of the exams; 17 students who qualified for AP Scholar with Honors Award by earning an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of the exams; and 50 students who qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher.
