THS Earns the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award!

Our school has earned the College Board's AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for expanding young women’s access to AP Computer Science Principles (CSP). This award acknowledges 1,119 schools for their work toward equal gender representation during the 2019-20 school year—nearly 37% more than the 818 schools recognized last year. Yours is one of only 831 schools to be recognized for achieving this important result in CSP.


This honor recognizes the outstanding work your school is doing to engage more female students in computer science. Official award certificates to celebrate these achievements will arrive at your school soon. In the meantime, you can download two versions of each award badge to feature on your school's website or in other school communications.

We will offer 7 Dual Credit Courses for Seniors next year:

1) College Algebra

2) DC English

3) Learning Frameworks

4 & 5) DC Psychology paired with DC Government

6 & 7) DC Sociology paired with DC Economics

Because of the difference in how college classes and our scheduling on a high school campus work those that are paired HAVE to be paired together.

All questions will be answered in the orientation so please make sure you attend one of them if you are interested in taking one or more DC courses next year!
