    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Stewart puts the students first in everyone does. He has devoted so much time to helping us succeed when not many teachers do.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a realistic sense of knowledge on history and current events because he would have us make forward connections to things that are happening in our generation with events that took place 100 years ago.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book, print the materials, don't be afraid to ask for help!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Granted, I have a preference toward history and english over math and science. While they all come well to me, I enjoy the former over the latter. However, one cannot enjoy a class that they like without at least a decent mentor (teacher) to walk you through the course and prepare you for the national exam. John Stewart is by far above par when it comes to being a "decent" mentor. He is kind, has a wonderful sense of humor, is chalked full of charisma, and cares about his students. He never takes a day off, so he is quite literally always there for his students. John Stewart makes AP U.S. History more than a class, but an adventure. He connects history with our present to make it all stick, and the jokes will make you double over in laughter. John Stewart makes his AP students feel like they can walk through the course with little difficulty because he will work with you until you've gone from theoretical crawling to full in sprinting.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to build a community based off of history. Each class becomes a family, and each unit a new adventure to partake in. Some of the highlights were his Reid's sessions before or after school because students from all of his classes will come to review for an exam, so our families turn into communities. We can bounce ideas off of each other and see what insight students from other class periods have to say.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you don't have much time outside of school to read because of a busy schedule, which I can attest to, then go in during lunch or before school if you can and read. Mr.Stewart will give you participation points for doing so. You'll want to read so that you can participate in class discussions because it is so much more enjoyable when you have things to say about what the class is studying!

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend that students take APUSH because it is very similar to a college course, where the majority of reading and notes is all on your own, which helps you prepare for those college classes. It also allows students to get a more in-depth study of how the United States came to be how it is today, which is very interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the group study sessions we did in the weeks before the national exam. We learned more about topics that other class periods might have gone deeper into, and vice versa.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You absolutely HAVE to read the textbook. The notes you take in class are great, but there are parts of chapters that you won't have time in class to discuss so you have to read on your own.
