Toluwalope Semowo of Greensprings School has been named a winner in the National African American Recognition Program after earning 720/800 on the English language exams and placing in the 90th percentile on the SAT exam this year.
The College Board, which administers standardized entrance examinations to colleges and institutions in the United States of America, issued this announcement.
Toluwalope, when asked about the strategies to getting a good grade and being one of the highest scorers on all of the SAT papers, attributed it to the way his boarding school is conducted. “I graduated with the class of 2021, and there is no secret to this scholastic achievement other than my Greensprings School learning experience,” he added.
The dormitory atmosphere at school taught me time management and how to organize my academics. All of the study strategies were beneficial to me as I prepared for the SAT and AP English exams.”
“A special thanks to my teacher, Mrs. Abiodun Badmus, for instilling in my colleagues and me the necessity of continuous review in order to develop comprehension, rather than cramming a week before our exams,” he said.
The College Board’s CEO, David Coleman, congratulated Toluwalope and stated the company is pleased of his accomplishment. “We are incredibly proud of what you’ve done and honored to honor you as part of the National African American Recognition Program,” he added.
We hope that this program will assist you in your pursuit of a college education. On behalf of the College Board, I congratulate you on your accomplishments and look forward to all that lies ahead.”
