    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is going to require hard work and focus. In order to leave and be ready for the AP exam you must read your book and truly study. Just paying attention in class won't cut it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was learning about Kennedy's assassination and looking at the ups and downs in our history to this day. I learned about the presidencies, but mainly the events and change in the social, economic, and structure of the US.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay focused and actually read your textbook.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very delightful class. I took this course my Junior year and it was one of my favorite classes in my high school career. I would recommend this course for anyone who enjoys discovering new things and anyone who enjoys learning history. It is very rigorous, so I would recommend it for dedicated students willing to read to understand the topics we discuss in class.

    Course highlights:

    -AP United States History was very eye opening. It took many different perspectives on the normal history one learns in elementary and middle school. I learned many new things that I would not have known. The discussions we had in class not only relied on the information from the book, but they also connected the content with current events and things we could relate to. Mr. gary was a very lively speaker, describing things in vivid details that made sure you understood the vents that took place in the past.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The only study tips I would give is DO THE READING. There are many times that we discuss things and have quizzes in class that could be confusing if you didn't read the night before. I would also recommend buying the AP practice book for the AP test. It helps you see what could possibly be on the test and prepare yourself more thoroughly.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course, not only because it's informative and interesting but, because Coach Gary is a very passionate teacher who clearly loves what he does.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning the historical context of many things that one would've never thought had a place in history, like the origins of football team names or behavior contrasts among different cultures. Most of all, I learned that everything has a history of it's own, whether it's an item, an action, a behavior or a holiday, and that's what kept me interested in the course. Often, students ask the question of 'why is this relevant?', and I thought Coach did a great job of tying what we were studying into the events that were/are going on in our lives regularly.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For any student that's considering taking this class, my best advice to you is to review daily. Whether it's talking about what you learned to someone or reading over notes, because there's a lot of information to cover and it's easy to overlook something(s).
