Southeastern Greene students receive college credit, financial awards for test scores

As recent as six years ago, Mapletown High School couldn’t offer students the chance to take Advanced Placement (AP) courses to better prepare them for college and other forms of secondary education, including trade school.

All that changed five years ago when the district initiated AP courses in English. Since then, the AP program has blossomed.

This current school year, 35 students are participating in six AP courses, five of which are offered in partnership with the National Math Science Initiative (NMSI).

Those NMSI classes include AP Statistics, AP Calculus, AP Biology, AP English Literature and Composition and AP English Language and Composition. A sixth course in AP History and Government is not included in the NMSI partnership because it falls outside the realm of science, math and English.

Students are able to attend specialized Saturday Student Study Sessions throughout the year at participating NMSI schools.

The sessions are supervised by NMSI instructors who come from all parts of the country and include professors, retired teachers with many years in education and teachers with experience scoring AP tests.
