OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - State School Superintendent Janet Barresi says students at the six Oklahoma schools participating in the National Math and Science Initiative program showed a 55 percent increase in their scores on the advanced placement exams in math, science and English.
The NMSI program is in place at Eisenhower, MacArthur, Lawton, Carl Albert, Del City and Midwest City high schools. The program works with teachers at the schools and provides equipment and supplies to help them teach advanced courses.
Barresi said the program will be added at Tulsa Memorial, U.S. Grant and Enid high schools next year.
Its estimated cost of about $150,000 per year is partially offset with private donations from companies including Northrop Grumman and Boeing.
