All around the nation there is gender gap in the high school system.

According to the Department of Education there seems to be a male majority in both math and science classes such as AP Calculus, AP Physics, AP Chemistry and AP Biology. There is also a female majority in AP English courses.

This something that is occuring at Orcutt Academy. According to class reports, there are 60% more boys in AP Science classes this year than girls. There is also 60% more girls in AP English courses this year.

Orcutt Academy offers a lot of AP classes on campus and many students are interested in taking them. All students are welcomed to take these classes and everyone has a equal chance to get in.

AP English teacher, Scott Gelotti says that, “It is an issue everywhere in America and girls are going to start entering in more AP classes hopefully”. He thinks that more girls are going to enroll in more and more classes and soon a majority of students will be girls.

Overall, this is something that is occurring around America, and people hope this will soon be resolved including teachers at Orcutt Academy.
