He earned a perfect score on AP Physics exam

John Mistele
It is very rare for a student to achieve a perfect score on an Advanced Placement exam but John Mistele, a senior at Ransom Everglades School in Coconut Grove, has gotten two perfect scores in his high school career. Last year, he received a perfect score on the AP Calculus BC exam, and this year he earned a perfect score on the AP Physics C: Mechanics exam.  

In May 2017, 55,041 students took the AP Physics C: Mechanics exam. John not only received the top score of five, but was one of only three students (amounting to 0.006% of AP Physics C: Mechanics Exam takers) to earn every point possible on this difficult assessment. This makes John one of only four students to achieve the extraordinary feat of earning a perfect score on an AP Exam in both 2016 and 2017. 

John credits his physics teacher, Paul Natland for acing the exam. “He was rigorous and he really cared about his students,” says John. He says the teacher pushed all the students in his class to do difficult problems because he wanted them to really think and be prepared. “I’ve had some challenging classes, but I felt I couldn’t have been more prepared,” says John about his AP Physics C: Mechanics course. John has taken 14 AP exams during his high school career.  

John will be attending Stanford University in the fall, with the hopes of studying mathematics or computer science. His dream is to become an inventor or create software.

Just imagine, seriously think about this. Proof, before and after as revealed by the Grape. 1st some greedy tow truck driver had to see the sign, think about the sign, and then start towing thinking he had found the golden goose. All those drivers pissed for parking legally, catch a cab or Uber, talked with the lady sitting behind bullet proof glass with 3/5 tattooed employees ready to pounce on anyone who shows displeasure about being towed illegally, more like having their vehicle stolen. All that trouble, the Grape story, city hall, telephone calls and letters and then a call to someone in maintenance who got in their truck, took out a ladder while probably blocking traffic and with his screw drivers removed this contradiction in less than five minutes. Now imagine some black person being arrested for some extremely serious crime, spends 20/30/40 years in prison only to be found innocent by some DNA test. It can be said that when the tow truck driver removed a vehicle it created a parking spot, which is the 1st story to appear in the Grape today "PARKING". Could this be the silver lining.
