John Smolenski stood up to his challenge on Thursday morning — trying to convince a crowd of dozens and dozens of Pittsfield High School students seated in a steamy, semi-lit auditorium at 8 a.m. to enroll in and stick with rigorous college-level courses of the Advanced Placement program. And to help them, there will be intensive practice and study sessions offered, on select Saturday mornings. As a senior field director for the Mass Math + Science Initiative, a Mass Insight Education program, Smolenski may not convince all high school students to challenge themselves, but he and his colleagues have been traveling across the commonwealth this fall to host kick-off programs to rally schools around AP classes. A kick-off was also held at Taconic High School on Thursday
