Bryant High School has earned the College Board AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science. This honor recognizes the outstanding work BHS is doing to engage more female students in computer science.
Schools honored with the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award have expanded girls’ access in AP computer science courses. Research shows that female students who take #APCSP in high school are more than five times as likely to major in computer science in college. Providing female students with access to computer science courses is critical to ensuring gender parity in the industry’s high-paying jobs and to driving innovation, creativity, and representation.
The 1,020 schools that receive this year’s AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award serve as inspirations and models for all U.S. high schools.
