"AP Biology Scholars Program: The Best is Yet to Come”
by Jabbar Bennett, PhD, Mentations, Spring 2004


“Students are still marveling in class on what they learned about Harvard Medical School and the dream of having it become a possible school for their preparation to become doctors.”  (Teacher)

“The students loved it! This is the type of experience that helps motivate our students and encourage them to pursue jobs in the medical field.” (Teacher)

“I enjoyed the (Hinton) Scholars Program. It helped me better understand significant biological concepts, the experiments were fun, and the program has prepared me mentally for college.” (Student)                    

“The lectures and review sessions were helpful because it helped with the AP test and I got better grades in my AP Biology class. Reviewing chapters became easier and I learned a lot.” (Student)

“To me the labs are a very valuable aspect of the program because they enabled me to see science at work and it helped me understand the material more.” (Student)
