PGCC’s Academy of Health Sciences Receives Highest Rating on MD School Report Card

The Academy of Health Sciences (AHS) at Prince George’s Community College (PGCC) recently received a five-star rating on the Maryland State Department of Education 2018-19 Maryland School Report Card, making it the only high school in the county to do so.

AHS was established seven years ago as a partnership between PGCC and Prince George’s County Public Schools. The program offers high school students a dual-enrollment opportunity to focus on teaching and health careers pathways while earning an associate’s degree.

“The Academy of Health Sciences continues to exceed expectations and reaffirm its value to the students and families in Prince George’s County,” said PGCC President Dr. Charlene M. Dukes. “We implemented a program that creates pathways to a college degree for our most vulnerable students and this report is proof that it’s working.”

The Maryland School Report Card, released Dec. 4, provides a comprehensive overview of each schools’ ability to meet the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act. Review the findings here for all 24 school districts.
