2017 AP Summer Institute Draws More than 300

July 27, 2017 ~ The 12th annual Advanced Placement Summer Institute, hosted at Olathe Northwest High School, drew more than 325 participants from around the world. Some traveled from the coasts of the United States, and one traveled from South Korea to attend this unique event.

In addition, Olathe hosted 18 institutes led by prominent consultants from College Board.

Throughout the four-day institute, participants shared positive comments about the experience. "From start to finish, this training exceeded my expectations," one educator said. "Thank you so much for this wonderful experience," another remarked. "I'm so much more confident and I learned some great strategies."

"I believe this APSI training will not only prepare me for AP Government, but I can easily use techniques and teaching strategies in my other history and on-level courses," a teacher commented.

Organizers plan to build upon the success of this event next year and have already set the date for the 13th annual Advanced Placement Summer Institute. Olathe North High School will host the four-day event July 16-19, 2018.
