Roy Snyder, SHS social studies teacher, shared, "The diploma program brings together AP options that kids already have and extends that to teaching academic research, writing and presentation skills that kids don’t pick up in other classes that are content focused...[The students] take whatever interest they have related to an AP class or interests on their own, do research and present on college level."
