Austin High School invited to participate in new AP STEM Access Program

Austin High School (AHS) has qualified to participate in the new AP®  STEM Access program launched by Google,, and the College Board.  This initiative has been created to increase the number of traditionally underrepresented minority and female high school students who participate in Advanced Placement courses in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines. AHS was identified based on PSAT/NMSQT data.

Google has awarded a $5 million grant to to enable U.S. public high schools to start 500 new AP math and science courses.

“We are so excited to be a part of this program because it aligns with one of our major campus goals which is to increase diversity in our enrollment in the AP coursework,” said AHS Principal Mary Ellen Edge.  “This benchmark serves as validation that we are making advancements towards reaching this goal.”

In the spring and summer, AHS students will be recruited for the new course (Physics B), and teachers will begin professional development and acquiring materials as they prepare to offer the class in the 2013-2014 school year.

Nancy Grigassy, AHS Math Department Chair, is excited about this opportunity to expand their AP courses.

“In the last few years at AHS, we have seen a trend toward more diversity in the enrollment in the AP math classes,” she said.  “The teachers at AHS are doing an outstanding job of encouraging students and supporting them in the early high school years to enable them to succeed in the AP classes their junior and senior years, which is evidenced through their scores.”
