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 2023. BFS has also received this award in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2022.
Out of 1,127 schools being recognized for their work toward equal gender representation in 2022, 834 have earned this award for AP Computer Science Principles. According to new College Board research, female students who take APCSP 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 APCSP.
We’re honored that our school earned this distinction and look to continue to make the world of computer science a welcoming one to all of our students here at BFS.
