    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Albright is an extremely nice teacher who deserves to have an awesome class. Unfortunately, because of this, she is easily taken advantage of and is not as effective in teaching an AP course.

    Course highlights:

    She was really nice and did her best. Mrs. Albright cares deeply about her students and wants them to succeed.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you take AP Language, it's the same thing but with fiction instead of speeches. Get like one book of literary merit ("A Streetcar Named Desire" or "1984") and really read and research it.

    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a nice course to receive college credit, however this may be the only upside to it. The course is very difficult in my eyes but if you do the work and stay focused, anyone can get through it and receive the college credit.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the books we had to read throughout. I was excited to read "In Cold Blood" because even though it was nonfiction, it had a lot of different aspects to keep me interested in it. Overall, the knowledge and conversations that we had were great.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always make sure to pay close attention to details, these are the most important thing in English class, as they will be tested a lot. As well how and why the author writes what he/she does, there is a lot of in depth conversation.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a combination of a mediocre teacher and an actually really awful class. It's a language arts AP class -- that alone should give you an idea about how awful it is. There's lots of writing (or there should be if our teacher knew what she was doing) and reading. We've done a few essays in class and all done really well -- then had then scored by AP graders only to receive 3s, 4s, and the occasional 5 or 6. If our teacher had had a few years experience, this class probably wouldn't be so bad. But this is her first year ever teaching this class, let alone ever teaching high school students, so needless to say it's been a rough year.

    Course highlights:

    I really haven't learned much of value. A few vocab words here and there in the beginning was mostly as much as we had really learned. We've only written a couple of each type of essay, so I haven't really learned much in that line either -- I've been using what I learned last year in AP Lang to get through. We mostly do a lot of pointless notecards that no on uses and powerpoints that no one pays attention to.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get a review book like a Princeton Review or 5 Steps to a 5 -- just something that will actually teach you how to pass this class. Don't rely on the teacher too much to be able to answer your questions, use google a lot, and try not to fall asleep every day.
