SGHS Receives 2022 AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award from College Board
AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award
Southern Guilford High 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 1,105 schools for their work toward equal gender representation during the 2021-22 school year. Yours is one of only 832 schools to be recognized for achieving this important result in AP CSP.
Studying computer science can open doors for students, giving them the tools to excel, and setting them up for high-paying careers, but girls have been left behind for far too long. That’s why College Board is honoring schools for expanding young women’s access to AP computer science classes and for the important steps they’re taking to reach gender parity.
Schools receiving the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award have achieved either 50% or higher female exam taker representation in one of or both AP computer science courses, or a percentage of female computer science exam takers that meets or exceeds that of the school’s female population.
1,105 schools are being recognized for their work toward equal gender representation in 2022.
832 schools received the award in AP Computer Science Principles.
209 schools received the award in AP Computer Science A.
64 schools received the award in both AP computer science courses.
The winners represent a broad range of high schools from across the country and around the world. They include private, public, and charter schools, large and small student bodies, rural and urban populations, and specialized high schools, along with generalized programs.
