Do the Math: Boise Student One of Only 12 in World To Earn Perfect AP Score


A Boise High School graduate is not only at the head of his class, but is one of only 12 in the world to earn a perfect score on the Advanced Placement Microeconomics Exam.

The Boise School District announced this morning that Samuel Faucher took the AP exam in May 2012 and earned a perfect 90 out of 90 points. More than 62,000 students worldwide took the AP Microeconomics Exam.

"It's definitely exciting, and I feel fortunate," said Faucher. "But it's important to keep in mind that the body of information I learned from all of my teachers and from my friends is far more than a few hours of work, and far more important as well."

Faucher graduated from Boise High in the spring of 2012 and is now a freshman attending Yale University, studying to become a chemist or environmental engineer.
