Eastern Tech & Patapsco Honored for Female Diversity

Eastern Technical High School, Milford Mill Academy, Owings Mills High School, and Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts have earned the 2019/2020 Female Diversity Award from College Board for having 50 percent or more female test takers in the Advanced Placement computer science principles course.

According to the College Board website, “Studying computer science can open doors for students, giving them the tools to excel, and setting them up for high-paying careers, but girls have been left behind for far too long. That’s why College Board is honoring schools for expanding young women’s access to AP computer science classes and for the important steps they’re taking to reach gender parity.”

The computer science principles course at the award-winning schools is taught by the following teachers:

Eastern Tech – Casey Brady, Daniel Murphy, and Matthew Millholen
Milford Mill – Kenyatta Arnette
Owings Mills – Rochelle Harley
Patapsco – Heather Jones Padilla
