NLHS Earns College Board AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award AP Computer Science Diversity Badge

North Laurel High School has earned the College Board AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science Principles. Schools honored with the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award have expanded girls’ access to AP computer science courses. 

More than 1,000 institutions achieved either 50% or higher female representation in one of the two AP computer science courses or a percentage of the female computer science exam takers meeting or exceeding that of the school’s female population during the 2020-21 school year. In 2021, North Laurel High School was one of 760 recognized in the category of AP Computer Science Principles (CSP).

“By encouraging young women to study advanced computer science coursework, North Laurel High School is closing the gap in computer science education and empowering young women to access the opportunities available in STEM career fields,” says Stefanie Sanford, College Board chief of Global Policy and External Relations. 

Congratulations North Laurel High School!
