High School Art Instructor Andy Anderson is very proud to announce that six Friday Harbor High School AP Art students earned the highest possible score of “5”on portfolios submitted to the College Board Advanced Placement Art program.
Seniors Sam McMain, and Daisy Roth each submitted 2-D portfolios, and Drawing portfolios were submitted by seniors Will Kromer, Robyn Roberts, Kendra Meeker and junior Ellery Von Dassow.
There are nearly 100,000 student portfolios submitted each year nationally and internationally and only a small percentage of these receive the highest score of 5. Each student’s portfolio consists of 24 original works that are evaluated by up to nine highly qualified evaluators.
Since taking over the Art program in 2009, all of Art Instructor Andy Anderson’s AP Studio Art student’s portfolios have received a college credit qualifying score of 3 or higher. This is the second year in a row that all FHHS AP Studio Art student that submitted portfolios earned the highest possible scores. Last year Will Kromer’s portfolio was singled out for showcasing on the College Boards AP website.
Mr. Anderson applauds his students, “I am extremely proud of all of the accomplishments of my art students. Their hard work and dedication has really paid off. Last year’s seniors were the first class that I taught for their entire four years of High School. I believe that anyone who has had the opportunity to see our student work displayed at Friday Harbor High School, the San Juan Community Theater, the Island Museum of Arts or in the San Juan County Fair, is always impressed."
