    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend for a senior in high school to take this class. Learning about the US Government is really important for your future as an American citizen. Taking the class for the full year, instead of a semester, allows for the students to gain more detail on why the government runs the way it does.

    Course highlights:

    In this course, you are able to learn about the way the government is set up and why the government is set up the way it is. When taking this course the most interesting thing I learned was how the Supreme Court used previously decided upon cases to make decisions on new cases. This is called Stare Decisis. My favorite part of the course was learning about all the different Supreme Court cases that have changed the way the government works in the past two thousand years.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    To be successful in the class, you need to be determined. You have to have motivation. You need to believe in yourself that you can be successful. Do your homework and your reading, because most likely the reading, you do not what to do, will be the biggest portion on the test. Also it helps best to study in groups. If you struggle with the material, ask a friend. There is a huge chance that your friend will know the answer.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Mr. Darby provides a fun and diligent work environment that allows you to succeed in the class. his teaching style is uncanny and he provides you with templates that make content easier to grasp.

    Course highlights:

    the highlights of this course were the supreme court cases and I learned how hard it is to argue with the supreme court and how well of argument you must have if you are going to present it to the highest court in the united states.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Expect AP level course work and also be able to manage your time well so that you can keep up with the class

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Darby is one of the absolute best teachers at GKHS. He makes the class extremely interesting and will do everything he can to make sure each student is on track and understanding the curriculum. The class will challenge you but it makes you a more knowledgeable student AND American.

    Course highlights:

    With the presidential election coming up in November, I am learning a lot about the voting process and how our government really works. It provides great background on the United States Constitution and how these political parties in the United States were developed.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are interested in History and/or politics, this is the class for you! To succeed in any AP class, you need great time management and organization skills. I have never regretted taking an AP class and they are an excellent opportunity to receive college credit while still in the High School setting. A major part of the class is doing the reading when assigned because there are discussions the next day in class.
