Southside High School Celebrates AP Student Achievements
Students, staff, administrators, and proud parents gathered in the brand new Southside High School competition arena in an AAIMS Assembly to celebrate the achievements of several Advanced Placement students.
Arkansas Advanced Initiative for Math and Science, Inc. (AAIMS) is an affiliate of the National Math and Science Initiative. The goals of the program are to strengthen the teaching of the AP and grades 6-10 advanced pathway/accelerated mathematics, science, and English courses and to build enrollment and increase the number of students taking and earning qualifying scores on AP exams in these subjects and better preparing students in general for higher education and career.
