Oliver Olsen, senior at Friendswood High School is one of 112 students in the world to earn every point on the AP Computer Science A Exam last year.

Olsen, who took the test in May 2017, had a score that was “so superior that it falls into a rather select category,” according to Trevor Packer Senior Vice President of AP and Instruction for the College Board, the organization that administers the exams.

“This outstanding accomplishment is likely a direct reflection of the top-quality education being offered at FHS,” Packer added in the statement. “We applaud Oliver’s hard work and also the AP teacher responsible for engaging students and enabling them to excel in college-level course.”

Millions of AP exams are taken by high school students every year. In 2017, only 511 students earned a perfect score on any of the 37 exams offered by The College Board.
