William H. Hall High School is proud to announce that four students have received a top score of 5 on their Advanced Placement exam.   

Seniors Aidan Kaminer, Miranda Mertes, and Jessie Xu, and 2017 graduate Alexandra Tomb, were among the 176 students in the world to earn every point possible on the 2017 Advanced Placement Research Exam.

The Advanced Placement exams are scored on a five-point scale, where a 5 is the equivalent to a grade of A in the corresponding college course. We congratulate these students on achieving this extraordinary academic feat.
