PBHS students score big on AP tests

Congratulations are in order for a group of 34 high-achieving Pine Bush High A drawing of an acorn with the letter A and PSchool students and recent graduates. They each scored a 5 on their Advance Placement exams. This is quite an accomplishment and we commend them all.

Two Pine Bush students – John Torpey and Alexis Trojahn – achieved it twice! John, who graduated tops in the class of 2020, scored a 5 on both the English Literature and Composition exam and the Biology exam, while Alexis, a senior this year, racked up 5s in both US History and English Language and Composition.

The Pine Bush Central School District Board of Education recognized each of the students at its Sept. 8, 2020 meeting.

Congratulations to all!
