TAS Student named “AP Scholar with Honors”


The American School is proud to announce that one of its own, Yen Khe Nguyen, has achieved the distinction of AP Scholar with Honors. Yen Khe has long been a high achiever. In 2016, Yen Khe was named National Merit Scholarship semifinalist for her strong scores on the PSAT/NMSQT in grades 10 and 11. Yen Khe scored in the 96th percentile, or the top 16.000 of the 1.5 million students worldwide. To add to this achievement, Yen Khe was also named AP Scholar in 2016. This award is presented to students who receive scores of 3 or higher on three AP exams. But, she did not stop there. In 2017 Yen Khe was bestowed with the AP Scholar Award with Honors, meaning the average of all AP tests she took was over 3.25 and she scored a 3 or higher on three or more of these exams—a truly amazing accomplishment. Yen Khe Nguyen will matriculate at Cornell University this fall, an Ivy-League institution in Ithaca, New York, founded in 1865 and currently ranked 15 of over 4000 nationally-ranked colleges and universities.
