The BFS 2017 AP exam season saw our highest level of student participation and most AP exams taken in BFS history. We have 44 students take 83 different exams. — roughly half the high school. We also saw our most successful results — with 17 BFS students named AP Scholars. With our increased AP offerings to include 12 classes this success should only continue to grow.
