Top of the World

Alexis McKinnon earns Top of the World honor for General Paper

Booker junior, Alexis McKinnon, received Top of the World honors for her score on the General Paper exam last June.  Alexis had the highest score of all the students who took the exam in the June 2017 series.

Worldwide, there are over 1 million students participating in the Cambridge program and over 2 million exams are taken in various subjects.

“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by Cambridge International as Top in the World. The best way to describe the Cambridge International program is as an integration into a world of next level thinking.  My Cambridge classes have engaged me in a way standard classes had never done before. Learning about issues in the world around me, how to use critical thinking techniques, and how to go about analyzing information has exposed me to concepts that I will be able to apply to thinking in the real world and in my future.”

Congratulations Alexis!
