BHS earns national honor for efforts to close gender gap in computer science courses

As a recipient of the national Advanced Placement Computer Science Female Diversity Award, Bartlesville High School has been singled out nationwide for its efforts to close the gender gap in computer sciences.

The school is one of 1,119 throughout the country to receive the award from the College Board, a nonprofit association best known for its SAT college entrance examination. That is nearly 37% more than the 818 schools recognized the previous year.

“The career skills students learn in the computer science courses are in-demand skills that will help them succeed in college and the workforce,” said BHS Principal LaDonna Chancellor. “I’m proud to be part of a district focused on supporting (such) programs.”

In Oklahoma, six high schools received the recognition, including fellow 6A districts Southmoore and Yukon. The remaining schools recognized are Grove High School, Cheyenne High School and Oklahoma Christian School in Edmond.
