Advanced placement scholars announced for 2015

MILFORD — Milford High School is extremely proud to announce that 29 current students or recent graduates from MHS have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board.

The honor recognizes their exceptional achievement on the college- level Advanced Placement (AP) Exams.

The AP exams were held in May of 2014 after students completed the challenging, yearlong, college- level AP courses offered at MHS. Exams are scored on a scale of 1–5 with 5 being the highest possible score.
