The Gainesville Sun (http://bit.ly/16ehyPZ ) reports 19-year-old Kevin Huang graduated from Buchholz last spring and is now a freshman at Yale University. Huang answered all multiple-choice questions correctly and earned the maximum number of points for each essay.

In a letter to the school’s principal, College Board Senior Vice President Trevor Packer applauded Huang for his hard work and AP teacher Will Frazer for “the ability to engage students and enable them to excel in a college-level course. Fifteen students received perfect scores on the exam.

Huang told the newspaper he’s pleased with the accomplishment. He says he paid attention in class and took notes to prepare.

Huang took 20 AP classes.
