RBHS Celebrates Student Who Earned A Rare “Perfect” Score On An Advanced Placement Exam

Riverside Brookfield Township High School District 208 celebrates high school student
Abigail Sokol for earning a perfect score on a college-level Advanced Placement® (AP®) Exam in
spring 2021.

Abigail Sokol was one of only 335 students in the world to earn every point possible on
the AP Computer Science Principles Exam.

APCS Principles teacher, Sandy Czajka said, "Earning a perfect score on any AP exam is
extremely challenging, but especially in computer science. There are many places where a student
might misread the code or have a minor calculation error that would result in not earning a perfect
score even though the student could earn a 5 on the exam. Abigail worked diligently throughout
the year to master the material in APCS Principles. Her perfect score not only demonstrates
mastery of the computer science content, but is also representative of her critical eye for detail and
code analysis."

“AP courses and exams are college-level, requiring great focus and persistence among
participating students,” said Trevor Packer, head of the Advanced Placement Program. “We
applaud the educators who encourage students to challenge themselves, who motivate and
encourage diverse students to achieve their academic potential.”

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. To learn more about AP, please visit
