KOHS graduates, current students recognized for success on AP Exams through participation in the National Math & Science Initiative
During the 2017-2018 school year, the first year that Keystone Oaks participated in the National Math & Science Initiative, 56 Keystone Oaks High School students earned 104 passing scores (3 or above) on AP math, science, computer science and English exams.
These students, and the instructors who teach those courses, were recognized by the Board of School Directors for their success on the AP Exams, which equated to more than $10,000 in scholarships and an estimated $200,000 in college credit.
The National Math & Science Initiative is a three-year program that strives to advance STEM teaching and learning by increasing the number of students taking and earning qualifying scores on AP math, science, computer science, and English exams.
NMSI provides study sessions for students as well as resources, supplies, and professional development for teachers.
At the end of the 2018-2019 school year, 166 Keystone Oaks students will have received nearly 3,000 hours of additional instruction through Saturday Study Sessions to prepare them for 350 AP Exams.
For Keystone Oaks teachers, NMSI has provided nearly $30,000 in free training and resources. Keystone Oaks AP math, science, computer science and English instructors participated in 448 hour of training during the 2017-2017 school year. Additionally, nearly 40 teachers in grades 3-12 have participated in NMSI's "Laying the Foundation" professional development program.
