    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a challenging course. One must be determined to learn the best way he or she can. It is not always about earning the highest grade, because though my exam scores were not as high for every unit, they prepared me for the AP exam, which I received a 5 on. The teachers are very nice, hardworking, and eager to help their students succeed. Students must be willing to put in the effort to receive the most out of the course.

    Course highlights:

    I appreciated how every test modeled the AP exam, so each time we students took them, we inadvertently were practicing the timing and enhancing the ease and comfort when facing synthesis questions, SAQs, LEQs, and DBQs. I learned that in order to succeed, a course is not always rote memorization; it is about learning how to apply and make inferences from the material.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Please don't think this is an easy course. Don't take the readings, studying, and LEQs lightly, because they are there to challenge you and force you to think in a more beneficial, philosophical, yet unconventional way. Be thorough with your notes. Do what works for you, because again, it is not about rote memorization. Even, if you want, study with your friends!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I found AP US History a highly entertaining and educational class. I would definately recommend the class to students, whether they enjoy history or not, as it teaches a variety of skills.

    Course highlights:

    Not only did I learn valuable information on American History, dating back to colonial times, I also learned many valuable writing skills. While the class was a history course, it also had a strong emphasis on writing ability. Now that I am in AP English, I find that my historical context knowledge, as well as ability to form a coherent argument under a limited time frame very valuable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you read all of the assigned reading, it is there to help you, not hurt you. Don't be afraid to ask the teacher for help, and also check out YouTube for some nifty review videos that will reinfoce your knowledge.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a required course, but I definitely recommend taking AP because the teachers are amazing and they really prepare you for the test, and they make it fun!

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were definitely the World War units in particular. The teachers make these units interesting to learn, despite the awful nature of the actual events. They have videos and songs and enactments to draw students in and I loved learning about it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you pay attention to the "writing tips" they give you for the SAQ's and DBQ's and FRQ's. They're super helpful not only for the class but also for the actual AP test. Read the book! Half the questions on the class tests come from there and the book is actually an interesting read!
