The College Board has announced that two Mundelein High School students earned perfect scores on its Advanced Placement (AP) Exam in spring 2021.

Hannah Cho, who graduated in May, and Steffen Brown, now a MHS senior, were among a select number of students worldwide to earn every point possible on the AP Exam in a particular subject. Hannah was one of 46 students to earn a perfect score in 3-D Art and Design. Steffen was one of 335 students to earn a perfect score in Computer Science Principles.

These extraordinary academic accomplishments are a direct reflection of the top-quality education being offered at Mundelein High School, the  College Board stated. MHS Principal Anthony Kroll echoed that statement.

“This is not just a source of pride for these two extraordinary students, but to our teaching staff and administrative team as well,” said MHS Principal Anthony Kroll. “We’re so happy that both Hannah and Steffen achieved this honor.

“These students were well-prepared and they put in a lot of hard work and effort to earn this distinction. They exemplify the potential for academic success of every student who walks through the doors of Mundelein High School.”

The Advanced Placement Program is committed to ensuring that students have access to the opportunities they have earned. Students who succeed in AP are not only more likely to succeed in college, but have the chance to save a significant amount of time and money by earning college credit or placement.

Colleges and universities around the world receive AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, and/or consideration in the admission process.
