    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it provides a great sense of college-level English. Although it may be challenging, there is a chance to receive college credit for taking this course, and even if you do not receive that credit, you will still have an advantage in your English courses throughout college. On top of that, the teacher, Ms. Newman, is really easygoing and a very kind, loving teacher whose class easily makes your day.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout the year, we have read various novels and pieces of literature to prepare us for the final AP exam. Upon finishing these novels, we would then, in turn, write one or two timed writes similar to those on the exam. Through this, we, as a class, learned to further our writing capabilities, and it helped us better understand and explain the English language.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking this course, make sure to read the novels when they are given. Although there are many and they take up a lot of your time, if you fail to read the books given, you are going to struggle with the timed writes and quizzes given. On a further note, make sure you prepare for the AP exam on your own time as well. It's a very difficult exam, and it's worth preparing for.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is concisely taught without any high school fluff. It's a difficult one, but as long as you fulfill the requirements and stay focused, you don't have to worry about your grade.

    Course highlights:

    All the books we read I learned to appreciate even if I didn't particularly like the book myself. The practice for the AP exam was phenomenal and I couldn't have felt more prepared or confident.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay up to date with the assignments. Ask questions and go in for tutoring if you need it. Most importantly don't fall behind on the daily reading schedule and don't procrastinate.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course to anyone, no matter their aspirations in life. I plan on going into the medical field but still see this as one of the most influential courses I have taken so far. It not only made me a better writer, it made me view literature in a whole new way.It allowed me to delve into a world of reading that I had previously avoided, gaining more, practical knowledge on the nature of life and humanity.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite parts of this class were the familiar environment and in-depth discussions on some of the best literature of all time. I learned to appreciate classic novels and poetry, their implications on the world around us, and even how they applied to my own life. And this growth would not have been possible without the homey, judgement-free nature of this class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You get out of this course what you put into it. If you devote just part of your day to do the assigned reading, don't fall behind on assignments, keep an open mind on the novels, and truly give it your best effort on the essays, it will be worth the time and effort. You will feel more comfortable in your writing abilities and may even begin to love the great pieces of literature required in this class.
