Valley student achieves perfect AP test score

It's a feat seldom repeated, a perfect score on a high school AP test, but one valley high school student was among those on that prestigious list.

Mountain View High School Junior Kassandra Edmondson takes her studies very seriously.

"My parents have a really good work ethic, and they taught me how to study, and how important it is to get good grades and try really hard at school," said Kassandra Edmondson.

With a 3.9 GPA and being fluent in Spanish, last summer Kassandra decided to take what she describes as a very difficult test.

"It was two essay questions, there were a lot of multiple choice, there was a speaking part, and a reading part," said Kassandra.

She is one of 91 students in the world to earn every point possible on the 2014 AP Spanish language and culture exam.

"I just didn't expect for such a long test for it to be even possible to get a 100%," she said.

Kassandra received the top score of five which is equivalent to an A in the corresponding college course. Speaking of college, Kassandra is still uncertain about what she will major in, but whatever it is the odds are she will succeed.

Even though Kassandra took the test last spring, she was only notified recently of her perfect score.
