A third of TAWS students earn a 3.5+ GPA

The average GPA is above a 3.0.

Brains and hard work pay off in the classroom, just as they do on the job. That’s why TAWS students earn such good grades in high school and college courses. Their GPAs are high —as are their grades in Advanced Placement and Montgomery College courses.

Examples:

A in AP English Literature and Composition, A in AP Calculus, and A in AP Statistics.
