This is the image for the news article titled First Class of AP Research Students Launch StudiesBrazosport ISD launched the Advanced Placement (AP) Capstone program two years ago. Approximately only 2,000 high schools in the United States currently offer this program. Rather than teaching subject-specific content, the two courses in this program develop students’ skills in research, analysis, evidence-based arguments, collaboration, writing, and presenting. This program was developed in collaboration with universities across the country to equip students with the research skills necessary to be successful in post-secondary education. To learn more about this program, visit the CollegeBoard's AP Central website.

Brazoswood High School junior Amy Lee, who is in the second year of the program, had this to say, “Capstone has helped prepare me for college as a high school student. These courses have taught me how to properly write essays and conduct research projects. My favorite part is that we, the students, can work independently and call on our teacher for help when we need it.”

Brazoswood teacher Brandyn Hargrove has enjoyed teaching the courses because she feels it helps prepare her students for the college setting. “The Capstone curriculum does an excellent job of preparing students for all post-secondary education. By the end of the two-year program, students will be able to conduct their own research, analyze the data, and defend their research just as they would in a dissertation for a master or doctoral degree,” Hargrove says.

Brazosport ISD is excited to announce that our first class of AP Capstone Research students are beginning the data collection phase of their research projects. Many of our students are conducting surveys to gather data.
