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.

Nearly 100,000 student portfolios are submitted each year nationally and internationally, and only a small percentage receives the highest score of 5. Each student’s portfolio consists of 24 original works that are evaluated by nine judges.

Since Andy Anderson took over the art program in 2009, every student’s portfolios received college credit qualifying scores of 3 or higher. For the second consecutive year, all portfolios earned the highest possible scores. Last year, Will Kromer’s portfolio was showcased on the College Boards AP website.

“I am extremely proud of all of the accomplishments of my art students," Anderson said. "Their hard work and dedication has really paid off."
