Advanced Placement Capstone
In 2015 QISM launched a new and innovative AP Capstone Diploma program, designed by the College Board, to equip students with skills vital for academic success at university. The program consists of two key courses, AP Seminar and AP Research, and at least four other AP courses. Students who successfully complete these core courses, and obtain scores of 3 or higher on their respective exams, receive an AP Capstone Certificate. Students who also obtain scores of 3 or higher on four or more other AP exams earn an AP Capstone Diploma.
The AP Capstone diploma is currently recognized by nearly 300 universities, including Harvard University, MIT, University of California, Berkeley, Georgetown University, New York University, University of Pennsylvania, to name a few. Holders of AP Capstone Diploma have a significant advantage in the university acceptance process and may receive college credit for the AP classes they have successfully completed in high school. Only 12 International schools were selected to participate in AP Capstone in 2014–15, and QISM was the first small international school selected by the College Board to implement this wonderful program. It is a great honor for our school, and an amazing opportunity for our students.
Current AP Courses: AP English Language and Composition, AP Computer Science, AP Psychology, AP Physics, AP Statistics, and AP Russian (prototype). In 2015, more courses will be added to accommodate the capstone program.
Our accreditation through the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA) ensures that students receive a universally recognized diploma that prepares them for a bright academic future. Since 1887, the prestigious MSA accreditation is considered the gold standard for schools, as it verifies the quality of each member school through yearly reporting and visitations. At QISM we take our membership in MSA quite seriously by actively planning and implementing improvement plans to create a strong school environment.
