Nineteen students became the inaugural class of inductees into Oyster Bay High School’s Academic Wall of Fame for high achievement on Advanced Placement exams administered by the College Board. To memorialize their success, and to serve as inspiration for upcoming students, their names were placed on a bronze plaque that hangs outside the high school library. More names will be added each year.
Seniors Miriam Coor and Riya Gupta were recognized for attaining the highest honor of National AP Scholar, a distinction granted to students who receive an average score of at least 4 (out of a possible 5) on all AP exams taken, and scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of these exams.

“We are thrilled to commemorate our students’ great academic achievements and hope that as students pass this plaque on their way to the library, they are reminded that with hard work and commitment, they, too, could strive to have their name on the Academic Wall of Fame,” said Oyster Bay High School Principal Ms. Sharon Lasher.

The Academic Wall of Fame was created by the District’s Academic Committee, comprised of Board of Education members, administrators, staff, and community members, and reinforces the District goal of “providing excellence in every classroom to result in increased student achievement on measures including Regents and AP examinations.”
