MMSI drives a school culture of high expectations and dramatically increases participation and performance in Advanced Placement courses, particularly among underserved populations, to prepare students for college and career success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Our Strategy for Change
The number of Massachusetts students entering college prepared for and eager to pursue math and science careers dramatically increases when:
- Schools expand access to and encourage participation in Advanced Placement and other rigorous courses in grades 6-12.
- Teachers are expected, and trained, to engage a broader range of middle and high school students in college preparatory classes.
- Students are supported with tutoring and awarded for success.
53 Massachusetts high schools are participating in MMSI’s intensive program to expand and improve Advanced Placement courses.
MMSI also operates the Advancing College Readiness, which includes professional development for middle and high school teachers in Pre-AP classes to prepare students in grades 6-12 for success in Advanced Placement.
