As indicated in the following tables, Cranbrook students achieved higher scores than students at the state and national level. It is important to note exam scores of 3 or higher because a score of a 3 or better indicates “qualified” for college-level understanding of the material covered on the test. The AP program uses a score of 3 as the benchmark for determining AP Scholars, Scholars with Honors, and Scholars with Distinction. Our students distinguish themselves further by earning a score of 5, the highest score possible on an AP exam.
