Randolph High School Principal Debbie Iosso praised RHS students and graduates for their achievements and also recognized the school’s AP teachers.

“While many of these students have graduated, 20 of them are current seniors. Each of these categories requires certain scores on each AP exam and that students take multiple exams.   I would also like to recognize the outstanding work of our AP teachers who are charged with preparing these students to succeed on the Advanced Placement exams.“
Three students, who graduated in June, 2016, were name National AP Scholars. They are Katherine Miao, Raghava Ravi, and Kelly Sun.
