School leaders and teachers are focused on helping students achieve college and career success.

We work closely with partner schools to strengthen instruction, provide student supports, and create a culture of high expectations for all students.

Advanced Placement® STEM & English Program

Mass Insight partners with high schools to increase participation and performance in Advanced Placement (AP®) courses, particularly for Black and Latino students and students from low income households. The Program is designed to prepare students for college and career success, particularly in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Over more than 15 years, we’ve supported more than 60,000 students and 2,500 teachers in more than 140 Massachusetts high schools. We also established the AP Teachers of Color Advisory Council, all members of which are AP teachers of color, to advise our team on strategies to increase the numbers of teachers of color in AP classrooms.

Our AP STEM & English Program is in more than 90 high schools across Massachusetts

More than 600 teachers receive coaching, resources, professional development, and more through our partnerships

More than 10,000 students receive extra support to succeed in AP through our partnership with their school

We raise $1M annually in support of our AP Program, leveraging $2.80 in public funding for each dollar donated

The support from Mass Insight staff, who are also veteran teachers, is immeasurable. Faculty benefited greatly, those that have taught their subject for years and those new to Advanced Placement or even the profession. I value the relationship built with Mass Insight, that is helping to raise the academic bar and provide students with real tools that bring about academic growth and success.
