KWHS wins Computer Science Female Diversity Award

Congratulations to Key West High School and Mr. Ebenson Michelin! Key West High School has earned the prestigious College Board's AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for expanding young women’s access to AP Computer Science A (CSA). This award acknowledges 1,127 schools for their work toward improving gender representation during the 2022-23 school year. KWHS is one of only 225 schools to be recognized for achieving this important result in AP CSA. This honor recognizes the outstanding work the school is doing to engage more female students in computer science. Research shows that female students who take AP computer science are more likely to major in computer science in college compared with matched peers. Through the school’s leadership in diversifying computer science education, they are preparing female students for the in-demand jobs of the future and giving them the opportunity to help solve some of society's most challenging problems.
