Student Success Spotlight / A Rare Honor

Our Class of 2019 Scarlett (Yuxuan) Huang is one of only 18 students in the entire world to earn a perfect score in the 2018 College Board AP Studio Art: Drawing Portfolio Exam.

“I tend to observe my surroundings a lot and find interesting things that can be a potential subject for artwork or can be translated and modified into a design element. For example, my concentration is fully based on the local MTR. I really like to illustrate details of the subject I'm drawing. So I am more of a realist when it comes to artwork because I just really appreciate the beauty of form or everything and it also challenges my technical skill as well."

Students in AP Studio Art spend an intensive year creating 24 art pieces for submission to the College Board. AP exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5, where a 5 is equivalent to an “A” grade in the corresponding university course. Scarlett Huang achieved a rare honor for her artistic talent. HS Principal Mike Wing was notified by the College Board that Scarlett’s performance on the AP Studio Art: Drawing Portfolio Exam in May 2018 was so superior that it fell into a select category.
