SHS Weekly Update
October 23, 2021
Last week our high school football team arranged and coached a girl's flag football game at the high school.
Monday we have Unified Football at the high school from 9:30 to 12:30. Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. In Unified Sports, teams are made up of people of similar age and ability.
This week our leadership academy hosted our second training in which about 50 student leaders in the building continued to work on their leadership skills as they prepare to tackle student identified issues in the building.
There is so much going on at Strongsville High that we should be proud of.

Strongsville High School Celebrates Student Who Earned a Rare “Perfect” Score on an Advanced Placement Exam
Strongsville celebrates high school graduate Kevin Whitbread for earning a perfect score on a college-level Advanced Placement® (AP®) Exam in spring 2021.
Kevin was one of only 356 students in the world to earn every point possible on the AP Computer Science Exam.
“AP courses and exams are college-level, requiring great focus and persistence among participating students,” said Trevor Packer, head of the Advanced Placement Program. “We applaud the educators who encourage students to challenge themselves, who motivate and encourage diverse students to achieve their academic potential.”
The Advanced Placement Program is committed to ensuring that students have access to the opportunities they have earned. Students who succeed in AP are not only more likely to succeed in college, but have the chance to save a significant amount of time and money by earning college credit or placement.
Colleges and universities around the world receive AP scores for college credit, advanced placement, and/or consideration in the admission process. To learn more about AP, please visit exploreap.org.
