    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It's a relatively easy AP course but the content is dry. The teacher though nice, is boring as well. None of what I learned was new and most was just repetitive.

    Course highlights:

    Easy AP grade and score on the exam. Learned lots of vocab and lots of essays. Group projects were minimal.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just participate in classroom discussion and do the essays.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend it. This course was one of my favorites from all four years of high school. It was fun, interactive, full of great discussions, and prepared me wonderfully for life and college. I have learned how to write comprehensive essays that get to the point but at the same time are creative. I have become a better thinker and reader. The teacher was a wonderful influence on me and truly cared for the success of his students. Timed writing is not a worry anymore and my vocabulary has expanded.

    Course highlights:

    We read a great variety of books, from philosophy to economics to a French children´s book. Through such a wide range we learned how to apply the same reading skills and still have success. I loved being able to feel excited everytime I was about to go to the class. It was a perfect balance of enjoyment and academic growth. I learned much about the world, about how to take a stance and stick with it. I learned how to give constructive criticism and receive it as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always ask your teacher his/her reasoning behind the grade given on a written exam. They have a great deal of experience and know what College Board is looking for. Learn how to proofread and correct your own written works. Something that also helped me a great deal was not procrastinating on reading assignments. It allowed for much more enjoyable discussions in class and took away a lot of stress later on. Don´t be afraid to open your mouth! Participation is where you can enjoy and take more out of each minute you spend in the classroom.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    There is no other course in High School that will make you appreciate every detail and effort put into a piece. This class is the very seed of my love for literature and too learn is impact on us is awesome.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to discuss your thoughts and defend them with some of your best friends is surreal. I learned how to look at text as if it were art but riddled with calculous; every detail was a function that produced a different result and together made an equation that not only sounded beautiful but looked it too.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. Read everything given to you and indulge in the glory. Put forth your thoughts because without doing that would be a waste and devalues them.
