The Texas Charter Schools Association is thrilled to recognize a Harmony School of Innovation-Fort Worth senior, Miguel Padilla, for earning a perfect score on the Advanced Placement Computer Science Test-A. Padilla is one of only 10 students to earn a perfect score on this exam out of nearly 60,000 students who took it worldwide.
Advanced Placement (AP) tests are administered by the College Board and allow high school students to earn college credit if they make a certain score.
Padilla has been a Harmony student since the fourth grade and attributes his success to his computer science teacher Angela Garcia. He framed a copy of his perfect score and gave it to Garcia as a gift to thank her.
Recently, the Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price declared November 8th as “Miguel Padilla Day” at a special ceremony at Fort Worth’s City Hall. Padilla received a proclamation signed by Mayor Price for his achievement. State Board of Education member Pat Hardy also plans to formally honor Padilla in February along with Representatives Romero and Goldman.
Padilla’s goal is to attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and one day work for Google. On behalf of the TCSA, we congratulate Miguel Padilla and wish him great success in his future!
