PHARR – As part of the National Math and Science Initiative, a group of 69 Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD (PSJA) students were recently awarded a total of $11,700 in incentives for receiving passing scores in their Advanced Placement (AP) exams.
The National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) is a nonprofit organization that seeks to improve teaching of science, math, technology, and engineering by offering training and resources to students and teachers. For each passing score of 3 or higher on core subject AP exams, the organization pays $100 to the student and the teacher.
This year, 37 students from PSJA North Early College HS passed AP exams with a 3 or better, nine at PSJA Memorial Early College HS and PSJA Southwest Early College HS each, and 14 passed an AP test with a 3 or better from PSJA Thomas Jefferson T-STEM Early College High School.
Congratulations students and teachers for a job well done!
