BORDENTOWN – A Bordentown Regional High School student earned a perfect score on his college-level Advanced Placement computer science A exam.
The Bordentown Regional School District congratulated Kush Gandhi on the honor. He was one of only 369 students in the world to earn the perfect score taken in spring 2022.
Rediola Mema, Kush’s AP computer science teacher, said, “students like Kush are the main reason why I love teaching the AP computer science A (CSA) class.
“Every day, he came to class well-prepared plus full of curiosity and the desire to learn. I am sure Kush has a very bright future ahead in computer science, and I am grateful to him for showing his peers what Scotties interested in technology are capable of,” she said.
Bordentown Superintendent of Schools Dr. Trudy Atkins said she was “totally impressed” by Kush’s performance on the exam.
“To study such rigorous material and to perform in such an outstanding manner demonstrates Kush’s engagement in his study of computer science,” she said.
Bordentown Regional High School Principal Rob Walder said they are proud of all their AP scores, “but to see a perfect exam; that is something off the charts!”
