WARREN – The Warren City School District is excited to announce that Warren G. Harding High School has been included as part of a select group of schools across the nation chosen to pilot an Advanced Placement African American Studies Course.
This fall, the administration at Warren G. Harding High School submitted interest to the College Board regarding the AP African American Studies pilot course. Principal Sandra Williams was notified Nov. 29 that Harding has been chosen to participate.
“We at Warren G. Harding High School are excited about expanding opportunities for our students and pleased to be selected to pilot the course. We believe this provides another pathway for the students to delve deeper into cultural knowledge and awareness,” Williams said.
The course is designed to offer high school students an evidence-based introduction to African American studies. The course reaches into a variety of fields including literature, the arts and humanities, political science, geography and science to explore the vital contributions and experiences of African Americans.
Harding will offer this pilot AP course during the 2023-2024 school year. This, along with the addition of the AP Computer Science Principles course, expands the repertoire of AP courses offered at Harding which is leading the region in providing advanced placement opportunities for students.
