    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's a big workload, but that's why it's AP. Mr. Ogren is a great teacher and he does all that he can to make sure that his students understand the courses.

    Course highlights:

    The labs are so much fun. My favorite one was going down to the creek and studying the water and wildlife. I feel like I really go a great understanding of the world around me and how important the environment is. Learning about anything from biomes to nuclear power, I was so interested!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't slack off. There are a lot of opportunities to do well in this class, but you have to be willing to put in the work. Remember to study the book. The tests are long and extensive, but you'll do well if you read the book, look at the study guides, and study the Quizlets.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    APES is a challenging course! Throughout the course of the year, you learn the importance of taking good notes from chapter upon chapter in the textbook, you develop good study habits, and you discover the amount of patience you have when working with a group of people for some of the most difficult and tedious labs you will complete in the course of your high school career. I found most of the information interesting and it still comes in handy (especially for Jeopardy!). Mr. Ogren was an amazing teacher and cares a lot about the information he is teaching, his methods, and his students. I do suggest avoiding this course if you have a lot of work for other classes and extracurricular activities.

    Course highlights:

    Although the labs were extremely stressful, especially for IB students who needed good scores to receive our diplomas, I enjoyed the creativity behind the labs and the freedom we had for picking what we wanted to explore.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay away from taking too many AP or IB classes while taking this course; reading through the textbook takes hours away from your time. Also, do not be fooled by the "open notes" quizzes! You have to take pages of notes to actually be able to pass the quizzes, so make sure to put lots of time into the textbook.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you keep up with the assignments and study for the quizzes, it's not difficult to maintain a high grade. The labs can be a lot of work, but most of them are group labs, so the workload can be split between classmates.

    Course highlights:

    Looking back, I'm surprised by how much I remember and how applicable it is to daily life. Even if you don't agree with everything that is taught, it makes you think critically and can be engaging.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study for the quizzes! You will have them every week or two, sometimes more. Don't freak out if you don't do well on one or two, but try to keep your quiz average up.
