AP SUMMER ASSIGNMENTS 2016

Advanced Placement courses offered by the College Board, require students to complete summer assignments in preparation for the start of the class in August.
Thus we will be providing our high school students with summer assignments for AP classes that will be offered in 2016-2017 school year at SST.

These summer assignments are designed to keep high school students engaged in critical thinking over the two months that they are absent from school, so students will come prepared and ready to take AP courses from the beginning of the school year.

All AP potential students who signed up to take next year AP courses offered at SST, are required to work and complete these AP assignments through the summer. Students, who wouldn’t complete these assignments, will not be eligible to take and start these advanced placement college level courses.

Please click on the following links for the summer AP assignments. AP Students must prepare during the summer to take a diagnostics test in the beginning of the school year.

SST STUDENTS IMPRESS U.S. REP. LAMAR SMITH

Dear Parents,
We were on Rivard Report: "When U.S. Rep. Lamar Smith (R-San Antonio) walked onto the School of Science and Technology (SST) campus Tuesday, he found a very well-researched group of students waiting for him.

As chair of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, Smith had prepared many remarks to share with the student body at the STEM-focused charter school, but he might not have expected the students to be so thoroughly prepared for his visit."
