PHS Student Scholars Honored

Congratulations to our Peekskill High School AP Scholars and our College Board National Hispanic Recognition Program winner!
AP Scholars:
Madeline Elam
Tanya Merino
Luisa Urgiles
These students have all taken three Advanced Placement (AP) and have scored a 3, 4, or 5 on each of the exams. During 2020, PHS has had a total of 18 AP Scholars; 2 of which were AP Scholars with Honors and 3 which were AP Scholars with Distinction!
We also celebrate Peekskill High School student August Vitarbo as the College Board's National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholar winner!
Last spring, an invitation was extended to students at PHS that scored in the top 2.5% of PSAT/NMSQT test takers who identify as one or more of the following: African American, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, or who attend school in a rural area or are from a small town. Students submitted an application, were evaluated and then recognized accordingly.
