Bellport High School Class of 2023 graduate Madeline Day has a lot to be proud of. She is among just 337 students in the world to earn a perfect score on the Advanced Placement 2-D Art and Design exam that she took as a senior last spring.

To earn the score, Day was required to submit a comprehensive and thematic portfolio, which took her eight months to curate.

“I challenged myself to work with new perspectives and subjects that I never have before,” she said. “While I may have made things more difficult for myself than necessary, it definitely paid off in the end. If not for the score, the skills that I developed were enough for me.”

Day said she is thankful to be recognized at such a high level and drew inspiration from her friend and classmate Rachel Li, who earned a perfect score on her AP Research paper a year prior.

While enrolled at Bellport High School, Day was involved in numerous activities. She was a member of the stage crew, yearbook, Art Honor Society, National Honor Society and Fathom literary magazine.

Day is currently studying fine arts at the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan.

“I feel very grateful to be at such a notorious art school, and I have to thank the art department at Bellport High School for preparing me to continue studying art post-high school graduation, as well as everything else they’ve helped me accomplish,” she said. “Also, a huge thank-you to everyone at Bellport High School for cultivating such a creative and thoughtful learning environment. I'm so glad that my score is able to reflect what's possible for students to achieve.”
