Mazel Tov!

The College Board just released the results of last year's Advanced Placement examinations, which are an opportunity for high school students to earn college credit for college level courses in high school. It included lists of high schools that did unusually well.

And the top performing school among all high schools of under 300 students in grades 10 through 12 on the Advanced Placement Biology exam is....SAR High School, a Modern Orthodox High School located in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, just a few blocks from my home! Even more amazing is that SAR, a brand new school, did not even have a grade 12 last year and has not yet graduated a single student -- yet bested every single other small high school in the United States.

Mazel tov to SAR Principal, Rabbi Tully Harcsztark, to AP Biology teacher Robert S. Goodman, and to all the students. This a tremendous kiddush HaShem. I look forward to seeing some of you in graduate school or medical school in a few years!

The entire AP report is online here. SAR is mentioned on page 20 (page 22 in my version of Acrobat Reader).
