The AP honor recognizes Tandem's engagement of more female students in computer science. According to the College Board's award letter, "New 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 your leadership in diversifying computer science education, you’re preparing your female students for the high-paying, in-demand jobs of the future and giving them the opportunity to help solve some of society's most challenging problems." Well done Tandem and AP Computer Science teacher Maria Morrell.
