IGDVS Celebrates Student’s Rare “Perfect” Score on an AP Exam

Developing Virtue Secondary School celebrates high school student Amy Liu for earning a perfect score on a college-level Advanced Placement® (AP®) Exam in spring 2022. Amy was one of only 369 students in the world to earn every point possible on the AP Computer Science A Exam.

At the same time, IGDVS honors computer science teacher Dr. Yu Chen for her outstanding dedication and effort in volunteer teaching AP Computer Science even with her full commitment to her college students at San Jose State University.

In 2021, DVGS was a recipient of College Board’s AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award, and the school continues to foster curiosity and innovation in STEM, expanding access and opportunities for girls.

“It is IGDVS’s honor to be a training ground for the next generation of female computer scientists and engineers. We already have alumni in the STEM workforce and more in college exploring the stars, researching viruses, and developing the next AI,” says Jin Jr Shi, IGDVS Principal.

According to Trevor Packer, head of the Advanced Placement Program: “AP courses and exams are college-level, requiring great focus and persistence among participating students. We applaud the educators who encourage students to challenge themselves, who motivate and encourage diverse students to achieve their academic potential”.

The Advanced Placement Program is committed to ensuring that students have access to the opportunities they have earned. Students who succeed in AP are not only more likely to succeed in college, but have the chance to save a significant amount of time and money by earning college credit or placement.

Colleges and universities around the world receive AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, and/or consideration in the admission process. To learn more about AP, please visit
