East Islip Approved as an AP Capstone School


After a lengthy application process, Janet Jones, math and science director, and Dr. Sara Anderson, humanities director, have secured East Islip High School as an AP Capstone school.

AP Capstone is an innovative diploma program that provides students with an opportunity to engage in rigorous scholarly practice of the core academic skills necessary for successful college completion.

AP Capstone is built on the foundation of two courses — AP Seminar and AP Research — and is designed to complement and enhance the in-depth, discipline-specific study provided through AP courses. It cultivates curious, independent and collaborative scholars and prepares them to make logical, evidence-based decisions.

Implementation of the AP Capstone program will begin in the fall of 2016.
