Three Valencia students earned perfect scores on their AP Exams in May 2017.

Naadir Jamal, AP Microeconomics Exam, 1 of 26 perfect scores
Coaminh Le, AP Computer Science A Exam, 1 of 112 perfect scores
Lauren Mard, AP Computer Science A Exam, 1 of 112 perfect scores

As a point of reference, only 511 students in the world earned every point possible on an AP Exam. Only 50 schools had two students with perfect scores and only 13 schools in the nation had three students earn perfect scores.

These extraordinary academic accomplishments are likely a direct reflection of the top-quality education being offered by our teachers, Fred Jenkins and Jason Parker.
