Report: 2 Brookwood High Students Cheated on AP Tests

They allegedly sneaked into rooms and took photos of the tests, answer keys.

Gwinnett County Public Schools confirmed two Brookwood High School students have been disciplined for cheating on Advanced Placement tests.

The students allegedly sneaked into classrooms and took pictures of tests and answer keys, the Gwinnett Daily Post reported.

Gwinnett Public Schools spokesperson Sloan Roach told the newspaper the students had a “very deliberate plan of action” in the scheme.

No other students were reportedly involved. The names of the students have not been released due to privacy laws. The details of the disciplinary actions the students faced were not disclosed.

10 involved, I guess technically those aren't being reported because they only attempted to cheat, not break through a locked door. I heard that one of the two was slotted to be valedictorian. New wouldn't that make front page real news?

Note that they broke into more than one classroom. This was a huge scheme with texting and sharing of those photos. I guess Brookwoods brightest aren't that smart.

Cheaters are scum.

Amy, please know the facts before trying to make an argument. "...because Gwinnett county schools have kept this hush hush ... protect their precious Brookwood ...downplaying the situation." Yes, they are downplaying the situation. Wouldn't you? If the media were to get hold of these two childrens' names, they would lose a significant part of their futures. It's not about protecting a reputation for themselves as much as protecting the students. "I understand that two were arrested, probably for breaking into the classroom and that there were about 10 involved" Nobody was arrested. The students entered through unlocked doors so there was no "breaking." There were only three involved as far as the investigation goes- only two of the cases were severe. "I heard that one of the two was slotted to be valedictorian." This is false. "This was a huge scheme with texting and sharing of those photos." How would you know? "I guess Brookwood's brightest aren't that smart." At least they know not to falsify on a public website. I am not defending their actions- they were unjustified and ridiculously foolish to do what they did. Nonetheless, these were mistakes. Hopefully they will learn from them.

Well said Stanton. Amy sounds bitter to me. Not sure where she got all her 'facts' about 10 being involved and the two being arrested but apparently she reads and listens to 'The News as I want it to be' station
