Aledo High School junior Jacob Seastrunk recently learned that he accomplished an extremely rare academic feat - he earned a perfect score on the Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles Exam in May 2023.

Advanced Placement Exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5. Jacob not only received the top score of 5, but was also one of only 459 students in the world to earn every point possible on the AP Computer Science Principles Exam, receiving the maximum score on each portion of the exam.

Jacob's computer science teacher Julia Reynolds said she's never seen this rare accomplishment before and expects that she'll never see it again in her teaching career.

"This outstanding accomplishment is likely a direct reflection of the top-quality education being offered at Aledo High School," said Trevor Packer, Head of the Advanced Placement Program at College Board. "We applaud Jacob's hard work and the AP teacher responsible for engaging students and enabling them to excel in a college-level course."

Congratulations Jacob and Mrs. Reynolds!
