Posted by Mary Clair Wright in Great News!

The Davidson CS department started 6 years ago with 12 students enrolled in a pilot Software Development Course. In the spring semester of 2016-17, 37 Davidson students took the 1st ever AP Computer Science Principles Exam, and 35 earned a qualifying score of 3 or higher. On the scoring breakdown, Davidson HS students beat the national average on each individual marker.

  • The First 13 students will graduate as IT Completers this spring after taking the following course sequence: Software Development (MOS Excel), AP Computer Science Principles (AP Score), AP Computer Science A (Dual Enrollment Credit Through USA)
  • There are 65 students enrolled in the AP Computer Science Principles Course
  • Approximately 130 students will take a computer science course for the upcoming school year

August 17, 2017, was Launch Day for the USA/DHS Java Pilot Program. The 12 DHS Students who are participating in the 2017 USA/DHS Java Pilot Program along with their instructor, Dr. Tom Johnsten are pictured below.
