Starting in February, Mr. Quah gave his students the option of taking the Autodesk Certified User (ACU) test which is an industry recognized certification for the Computer Aided Drawing software he teaches - Autodesk Inventor Professional. The STEM students who have obtained Autodesk certifications and passed the national PLTW tests in each of the classes are to be congratulated for their efforts. These are wonderful passing rates in the STEM program at Tampa Prep. This year, the school has some of the highest "A" rates in the classes since the program inception 5 years ago.
Being inducted in the National Junior Honor Society is one of the most prestigious honors for a Middle School student. Current NJHS chapter members Jeycob Mason-Diaz, Jonnee Ward, Katya Wood, Dylan Mann and Ewan Abercrombie assisted Mrs. Pat Embry in inducting 57 new members last week. Membership into NJHS is an honor bestowed upon students who meet specific criteria. Qualifying students must maintain at least a 3.0 average and have completed two full semesters at Tampa Prep.
