Beyerle and Merit Scholarship awards are provided for selected finalists from Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Gloria Cai, Michelle Li, and Nicholas Mills were among only 113 students worldwide who earned every point possible on their AP United States Government and Politics Exam taken last spring.  They answered every multiple-choice question correctly and earned full points on each of the essays in the free-response section of the exam.  Additionally, Marriotts Ridge High School was one of only 14 schools who had three students with perfect scores across all AP Exams administered in Spring, 2018.   Mustang Pride!
