The Advanced Placement (AP) exams are administered in high schools to measure college readiness among juniors and seniors. Colleges and universities award college credit to incoming freshmen for high achievement on the AP exams. The benchmark for high achievement is a score of 3 or higher. MSU believes in the importance of college readiness to help better prepare students to compete in the local and global job markets. Making Education and Youth Development a community initiative will help facilitate collaborations among parents, community stakeholders, and the greater MSU family to reflect President Wilson’s mission: Growing the Future. Leading the World.
The above tables reflect information regarding one indicator of college readiness as reported in the school profiles (MERVO and Reginald F. Lewis) published by Baltimore City Public Schools, which summarize a comprehensive analysis of overall school performance.
The MCM Environment Priority Area focuses on creating both a clean and sustainable urban environment enabling more efficient growth. MSU in its quest to make a difference is providing: alternative solar energy, career training, educational awareness, and installation opportunities for residents in lower income and areas faced with environmental challenges. The MCM Solar Panel Initiative is designed to bring a clean, alternate source of energy to homes in these areas. The program, which is currently underway, will commit an investment of $200,000 from Baltimore City to advance solar installations for up to 40 homes located within the Morgan Community Mile.
The Live, Work, and Spend Priority Area is dedicated to creating solutions that will increase the affordability of housing and promote home ownership within the Morgan Community Mile. These efforts will encourage residents to support local businesses, which will in turn attract new business opportunities, thus revitalizing the local economy.
