Mineola High School has earned the College Board AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science A and AP Computer Science Principles. More than 200,000 institutions offer AP courses across the globe and Mineola is one of only three in New York State and one of 36 in the world who earned this dual award.
To earn this designation, schools had to achieve 50 percent or higher female representation in either or both of the AP computer science courses, or have the percentage of female computer science examinees meet or exceed that of the school’s female population.
AP Computer Science Principles launched in 2016 had had nearly 100,000 students take the exam in 2019.
Mineola School District has been committed to providing female students with access to computer science courses and opportunities, at all grade levels.
