    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was one of the most challenging I've ever taken but it was the greatest experience. My writing improved exponentially and my test taking skills are much better because of the novels we read and the material we covered; I highly recommend this class.

    Course highlights:

    We watched many TED talks and annotated many classic pieces of literature such as Allegory of the Cave and wrote essays over them, so my analytical skills and writing skills improved greatly.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a difficult class so you need to be prepared to out in work outside of class as well as being attentive in class. It's an easy A as long as you do what the teacher asks and you put in the effort required.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was excellent for expanding one’s horizons and development of critical thinking skills. The course was rigorous enough to challenge the mind, but not impossibly difficult! The course provides readings of various backgrounds that present diverse views on different controversial issues, pushing the student to examine all evidence and learn to think for themselves.

    Course highlights:

    By taking AP Language, I enhanced my comprehension skills and learned how to read different styles of works. Additionally, being that this is a college course, I bettered my study skills and got a good idea of what kind of effort and how much college courses will require of myself as a student.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, one must maintain good study habits and ALWAYS DO THE READING. A large part of this course is analyzing works outside of class and coming back ready to discuss. If you don't quite understand the reading, that's completely okay, hence the discussion aspect of the class. Just always try your best, take notes on lectures and utilize what you learn from the teacher to ensure individual success.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    AP Language and Composition is an enriching course that helped me develop a solidified worldview with knowledge of how to back up my assertions. I learned to write effectively about the world around me and to be a more observant, aware individual.

    Course highlights:

    The class is essentially based on the real world. We studied pieces that had relevance and clear connections. We were able to take our opinions and thoughts and learn to defend them, articulating exactly why we held a belief.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is crucial to know why you believe something. It is not enough to have a vague understanding of a worldview that you have always assumed is correct. You have to do a little soul searching to be an effective writer with something important to say. The writing skills will come with practice; the real work is being confident in a belief as you have looked at every side of it.
