    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    History is such an exciting course to take! Learning about how this country, or any country for that matter, came into being is always an eye opener. I would recommend APUSH because of this! Learning the good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly of American history can truly help students appreciate their current lives, and the rights that they enjoy now that certainly don't exist in other nations. It inspires a sense of nationalism in the students.

    Course highlights:

    One of the highlights of this course would have to be the class debates. In said debates, students are assigned to support/refute one side of a historical argument while trying to step into the mindset of the people of the period; these might include presidents, government officials, or even common people. Through these debates, I learned that there is always more than one way to look back on history, and that not everything is black and white. As an immigrant, I learned the history of America and how this free country came about! This was a great experience, and I still recall lessons about the industrial period whenever I visit New York City.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students considering this course should be ready to spend a lot of nights reading from the text book or one of several other books recommended for the course. This is due to the fact that it is an AP course and the teachers need to compile all of American history into several months before an exam. Therefore, I would advise students to have a study plan throughout the year so that they never fall behind. Students should also come into this course with an open mindset, since different viewpoints of history will be explored.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you love history and writing, then is the class for you. APUSH is heavy on reading and understanding material to progress throughout the year. You need to specific facts of what happened in history, when it happened, where it happened. and who it involved.

    Course highlights:

    You learn a lot about American history and things about past presidents that really won't help you in any way possible unless you plan to become a historian. I will say, that you learn an interesting perspective of American history that is completely different form what you've been taught your entire life.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the material given to you and go out of your way to learn more on your own. This course is really content heavy, and if you can't keep up with it then you won't be able to progress successfully in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a pretty interesting course on Ameican History, it will take a more thorough look at material, events, and milestones in the United States than general American History class. Overall if you are a history person, and especially if you like American History than these is a good course​ for you.

    Course highlights:

    This course is work intensive, and the professor can be intimidating, however, he is knowledgeable and desires for you to do well and to me that made the difference. As a student , I learned about the real motivations of the civil war, the truth about Jefferson's affairs, and all the illegal glamor​ of the roaring twenties.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework, I know it's a lot, especially when compiled with other courses, but if you don't do the readings and the essays you will fall behind and the course's value diminishes​.
