SAHS > Souderton Student 1 of 54 in World to Score Perfect on AP Exam
For the fourth time in six years, the Souderton Area School District has been named to the Annual Advanced Placement (AP) District Honor Roll. Souderton was one of only 425 districts across the United States and Canada to be honored for increasing access to AP course work, while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of three or higher on Advanced Placement Exams. Souderton Area High School Principal, Sam Varano, when asked about the accomplishment said, “Being named to the AP District Honor Roll is a credit to the students, teachers, community, and curriculum of the Souderton Area School District, as well as to the Pathway 360 Program at the high school. Varano believes that the Pathway 360 Program, through its emphasis of rigor, relevance, and relationships, gives students the motivation to take higher level course work, such as Advanced Placement classes, based upon their future goals.
Additionally, Souderton Area High School recently learned that one of its seniors, Hirsh Sisodia, was one of only 54 students in the world to earn every point possible on the AP Microeconomics Exam. Looking across approximately 5.4 million AP Exams taken by 2.5 million US public high school students in 2015, only 322 students earned every possible point on an AP Exam. Regarding Hirsh’s accomplishment, Principal Sam Varano said, “Hirsh Sisodia is one of the most talented, accomplished, and humble students I have known in my 12 years as principal at Souderton Area High School! The world will be his oyster.”
