PHA Earns Dual AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award

Schools receiving the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award had 50% or higher female representation in one of the two AP computer science courses, Computer Science A and Computer Science Principles, during the 2019-2020 school year.

“PHA has successfully achieved diversity in its computer science program through positive reinforcement that computer science is for all students, including students of color and girls. The program at PHA provides students with a broad array of exciting and engaging project-based learning activities. Furthermore, we provide access to extra-curricular opportunities at tech companies in nearby Kendall Square, which serve as a tangible link to the real world and allow students to visualize themselves in the STEM fields,” said Ruth Farmery, PHA’s Director of K-12 Computer Science.
