Congratulations Dr. Barnes and BFS for once again earning the College Board’s AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award. This award has been granted for attaining female student representation in AP Computer Science Principles (APCSP) for 2022. BFS has also received this award in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
Out of 1,105 schools being recognized for their work toward equal gender representation in 2022, 832 have earned this award for AP Computer Science Principles. According to new College Board research, female students who take AP CSP in high school are more than 5 times as likely to major in computer science in college, compared to similar students who did not take CSP.
We’re honored that our school earned this distinction and look forward to seeing these young women and others pursue and achieve success in computer science education and careers.
