AVERILL PARK, N.Y. (NEWS10) — It’s a story NEWS10 ABC first told you about: an Averill Park High School student representing the Class of 2022 got a perfect score of 5 on his AP art exam this past spring. Not only did Liam Rounds earn a perfect score, but he also scored the maximum amount of points on every single portion of the exam.

When Rounds first found out about the results of the AP exam, he was in the middle of a full-day art studio college course. He said he’s still processing the news, but that it’s “really exciting and also really validating in a way.”

Rounds is currently studying art activism and fashion design at the Rhode Island School of Design. He says it’s hard to put into words being able to study at his dream school.
