    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mrs. Hoilman is the best teacher I've ever had, she genuinely cares about you and will work with you no matter what. She may give a lot of work but everything actually feels important and the information gained in the class itself is actually relevant and useful.

    Course highlights:

    This class allowed me to actually understand the news and major current events and look at them with a more critical view.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the work and go to every review session or just set up some with the teacher. Everything that she gives you is important and will be used later in the class.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Every high school teacher should be required to take Comp Gov with Ms Hoilman! She treats her students with respect and holds them accountable for their actions and reactions. Her kids are in an AP course and must act like college pupils, which can be tough to get used to at first, but is ultimately a breath of fresh air. The material is current and interesting and in taking this course you will find that you are much more knowledgable then not only your friends, but also your parents, and other adults around you. This course goes over current events and political systems in the CG6, which are China, Great Britain, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, and the EU. You will learn about a myriad of topics that you have never learned before, which sometimes can be difficult to memorize and understand, but Ms Hoilman's interactive activities and projects are lifesavers and should be done well because they are essential in the long run.

    Course highlights:

    I stopped procrastinating and I felt what it was like to take a course that I was genuinely interested in. I learned more about the world around me in those nine months then I had in all my previous years combined. You will do quite a few projects and that you think are arduous and mundane, but when you're sitting in that AP test room, those projects are what stand out in your memory, so always do them and do them well.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be organized!! Don't Procrastinate! Ask Hoilman for help, her door is always open for her kids! Don't just muddle through all of your work, do it right and do it well, otherwise don't do it at all because if it isn't your best work, she'll know.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Ackerman does a marvelous job in making students feel like they are a part of history. His stories are intriguing and detailed.

    Course highlights:

    I learned all about the Russian Revolution, which I found super interesting. Of course, afterwards, I had to watch "Anastasia", and with all my newfound knowledge, I found myself enjoying the movie more than when I was little!

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard for the quizzes! They are detail based, so make sure you memorize the people discussed and what they did. I would suggest using the website Quizlet to make flashcards. It's very convenient, since you can study anywhere off of your phone using the app.
