    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is always able to weigh in on the topics at hand at any moment. Although the class may move a bir fast at times, the teacher is always willing to slow down to let the students understand the focus of the lesson.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a personal interest in the mind of humans. Where are our limits and can we surpass them? What is it to be human? Through this class, you begin to create conflict within yourself, which I believe is a better thing to go home with than memorizing the prologue of Romeo and Juliet, and bring up to question your morals and if you've always thought that way, or if you're willing to change. Much perspective is changed due to the actions and events that happen in the literary works on the agenda. You also expand your vocabulary with new and interesting words. Can't forget about that.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always carry a binder and have your papers organized. Be open to ALL suggestions on your work and read up on others' attempts on the same work (the do's and don'ts).

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it challenges you and your working habits. This course has given me an insight on what college classes are going to be like and I have learned so much through it.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course, I have learned more about literature itself and what it takes for it to actually have merit. I have learned how to think deeper and how to always find the meaning in a story. I have learned how writers use a certain genre like fantasy to send a universal message.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    We are expected to do the reading and our teacher expected us to do the work, for we are in an AP class. As long as you do the work and don't fool around, you are going to improve and pass the class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not only do you get to learn advanced English, but you'll have fun doing so! Make no mistake, though, the AP part of the course is real​: you'll have your hands full! The only way it'll be easy is never to procrastinate; it only is hard when you do that. Otherwise, it's fun, and you get to know what everything means: you'll know the plot twists chapters before they happen, and you'll get poetry like no other​!

    Course highlights:

    Poetry, Shakespeare, How to write a long and proper essay in 40 minutes for an exam, and so much more!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    DO NOT PROCRASTINATE! If you have a project, start on it right away even though the teacher may not say anything, make sure to do the work or ask about it!
