AP Testing Update

The Board of Education will be considering this evening whether to approve The District paying fees for one AP test for every DCSD test-taker. This is in addition to the test fees for one AP test for students on Free and /or Reduced Lunch paid for by the GaDOE.

We will provide related follow-up information shortly.

The registration deadline for AP tests has been moved to Monday, March 6. Test takers must register through this link: https://user.totalregistration.net/AP/110162. All payments must be made online using a credit or debit card - you will not be able to pay in-person at Druid Hills High.

We do have limited funding for students taking multiple tests with financial need. Please contact Mr. Alexander for more information.

Emory Division of Animal Resources - Summer Internship Program

The Division of Animal Resources (DAR) of the School of Medicine of Emory University in partnership with Druid Hills High School brings forward a paid summer employment opportunity. We are looking for highly motivated high school students who will be seniors in the autumn of 2017 and are interested in pursuing a career after graduation from high school in the care of laboratory animals. This experience is a gateway for a future permanent hire into an entry level career position with DAR.

An interest session has been scheduled for February 23 at 2:30pm at DAR (which is a 5 minute walk from Druid Hills High). Please contact the Main Office for a permission slip to attend.
