    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course, unless you need to take it to graduate, or if you like learning about government. I do believe that this class is important to take as a high schooler, because it teaches you how our government came to be, and how it was founded. However, I'm not huge into social studies classes, so I found the class to be very boring.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of the class was learning all about the 2016 Presidential Election. I was not able to vote in this years election, but it was still interesting to learn about each candidate, and what they stand for. It was also good to learn how to fact check what the candidates were saying, so we could see how much they lied and told the truth during interviews and debates. When I am able to vote for the POTUS again in 3 years, I hope that I will take the time to look information up, so I am well informed of the candidates and their views.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always study for tests, even if you think you understand the content. The tests are usually asking questions that you might not think about while reading through your notes, so read and understand them thoroughly, and ask questions as needed. As with any class, if you don't understand a topic that you're currently learning, brushing it off and telling yourself that you can learn it later, will not help you in the long wrong. There is no such thing as a dumb question, so ask as much as you can. And lastly, if you don't understand something, chances are that there's at least one more classmate in the room that also doesn't understand.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    While Film studies was enjoyable in class, I feel that it was far too much work for an elective course. Every other week, we were expected to write a well-crafted essay, and while that is expected for core classes, not so much for an elective course. Because of these essays, I found the class itself to be too much, knowing that I would have to write an essay on the film I was watching.

    Course highlights:

    I loved watching the movies, especially the more recent ones, even though they certainly do not have as much of a cultural value. However, it was relaxing to take a break in the day to simply watch a movie. Regardless, I did learn about cinematic techniques such as lighting, as cinematic techniques were the primary focus of each essay.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If a prospective student is concerned about his or her grades and wants a more relaxing class to offset more demanding courses, this class is not a good fit. However, a student who is comfortable with a B, C, or D should take this, as it encourages students to analyze films, but the heavy coursework will not be overwhelming for the student.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course! Since this course is only offered to high school seniors who will soon leave the public school system, students taking the course will gain knowledge that is practical and completely applicable. Students learn how to work with others who may be very similar or polar opposite of themselves, which is an essential skill to have when working with an employer. Furthermore, because students attempt to avoid embarrassing situations throughout their adolescent years, many may not know how to cope with failure when it occurs. Sociology provides students the opportunity to make mistakes in a safe, controlled setting where everyone else is in the exact same position. Finally, during senior year, many cliques have been long established, but this class breaks those stereotypes and builds an understanding community around the students, which is a perfect atmosphere to graduate with.

    Course highlights:

    Ironically, my greatest memories come from my humiliating moments. During one game, I went to throw a frisbee down the hall, but I let go too late and almost nailed my teacher in the head. From that, I learned that even though he was not injured, it was still necessary to apologize. In another game, I launched a ball into a basket at the end of the hall using my own method, despite the teacher yelling throughout the game that I was doing it wrong; at the end, my team and I broke the record for most points ever scored, and we went from 20th place to 15th in one day. From that, I learned that some people might attempt to discourage me, but if I see potential in myself, I should develop it and see where it takes me. Lastly, after being assigned a new team, I gave over a hundred points to my old team accidentally, and that could not be undone. From that, I learned that I was going to make mistakes where I would let others down, but I could not dwell on that, and instead should aim to make it up to them.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, students must truly step out of their comfort zones in the most extreme ways possible. It is not essential to be athletic in order to be successful, even if the games may seem daunting. Also, I would recommend that students should embrace the opportunity. This is truly a unique course, and if students put in a lot of effort to grow into a better version of themselves, then they will. In terms of studying, there are four tests (each worth 20 percent of the overall grade) throughout the semester that are open note, and if students take good notes during the class and review their notes briefly beforehand, they will succeed. Regardless, some of the questions are oddly specific and may seem to apply to multiple personalities, so it is essential to take many notes throughout the class: either be playing the game or writing some notes, nothing else. The final exam is a bit more challenging, also worth 20 percent but without notes. However, most of these questions are broad and much easier to work with.
