FREE AP Study Sessions Offered to BHS Students
Bourne High School is pleased to partner with Mass Insight’s Mass Math + Science Initiative (MMSI), the largest math and science program in the state. This grant is designed to increase student participation and performance in AP Math, Science and English. The MMSI program relies on multiple resources and support systems to help schools reach their performance goals each year, including world-class teacher training and professional development (AP Summer Institute and 2-Day training sessions), Saturday student study sessions, and content support from experienced math, science, and English directors.
To support this initiative, Bourne High School students will be participating in Mock AP Exam Sessions and Saturday AP Study Sessions with area MMSI schools including Wareham, Middleborough, and Carver. For each AP course in Math, Science and English, there are two Saturday study sessions and one school-based Mock Exam session. Saturday sessions last approximately 4 hours and students rotate through 3 one-hour 15 minute meetings (8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.). These sessions are run by MMSI staff and locations vary among the MMSI cohort of schools in our area. When Saturday sessions are scheduled off campus, transportation will be provided (departing from Bourne High School at 7:30 AM).
Students enrolled in AP Science, math and English courses are expected to attend all Saturday study sessions and participate in the scheduled mock exam during the school day. We are providing the list of dates ahead of time so that students and parents may plan accordingly.
