“Many of these students are only juniors,” remarks JPII headmaster Faustin Weber, “so they’ll have a chance to add to these awards next year. Their performance is a credit to how hard they’ve worked and how well they’ve been taught, not just in their AP classes, but in all the freshman and sophomore courses leading up to the AP’s. Students are taking AP classes at a greater rate at JPII than any other time in our school’s history, and even so, our results are the best they’ve ever been. My congratulations to our students and teachers. “
