Local senior at Kentridge High School honored for outstanding academic achievement
The Metropolitan King County Council today recognized Tracy Tran of Kentridge High School, which is in the Kent School District, for recording a perfect score on her advanced placement calculus test. Only eight students worldwide earned a perfect score.
“To be one of only eight people in the world to earn a perfect score on the AP calculus test is a remarkable accomplishment,” said Councilmember Reagan Dunn. “Tracy should not just be lauded for her academic achievements but also for her active role in the community. She has a very bright future ahead of her.”
“Tracy is an outstanding student and she should be very proud of her achievement,” Councilmember Dave Upthegrove said. “I am excited to see what she does next.”
Tran answered every multiple choice question correctly and received the highest possible score for the essay section of the exam.
Tran also gives back to her community. As the head of the school’s Key Club, she took the lead and was responsible for organizing and assisting in completion of a new playground at Turnkey Park at 104th and James Street in Kent this past June.
“Tracy is a wonderful student who has challenged herself academically by taking a very rigorous course of study including many AP courses,” said Kentridge Principal Michael Albrecht. “Tracy is a contributing member of our learning community by being active in community service, extra-curricular activities and being a leader among her peers. Tracy is exceptional.”
