WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP – Washington Township High School students currently taking the Advanced Placement World History course recently visited Orchard Valley Middle School to talk to the students there about what is involved in an AP class.

Freshmen Katelyn VanMater, Gia Karavangelas, Julia Szwedyk and Gabby Raspanti spoke to approximately 35 OVMS eighth-graders who attended the presentation, which ventured beyond AP and discussed a little more of what to expect upon entering high school in general.

“The girls did such a great job,” OVMS Humanities teacher Jeff Snyder said. “You could hear a pin drop the entire time they talked. The eight-graders really were interested to learn about the high school.”
