    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is dry. I'm gonna make it very clear. There is a heck of a lot of information and not all of it is interesting but it is important. That is why I would recommend this course. It is teaching your information about the country that you live in. Every person in this country should be educated on it.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was when we would watch videos and the video would show a picture of a person and then it would zoom in really close so that all you could see was the person's eyes. It made no sense but it was entertaining. It made me want to actually pay attention to the otherwise slightly boring content. Most everything you learn in that class is slightly boring but you learn nevertheless. I wrote an 18 page research paper on Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President of the United States. He was known as Silent Cal because he rarely spoke unless he had to. I wrote 18 pages about him. I can tell you everything about that man. So thanks APush.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Follow along, take notes, you don't have to memorize the President's in order no matter what anyone says. You're gonna learn a lot about the Puritans, probably too much so just deal with it. It gets more interesting when you get to the 60s I promise.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I definitely recommend it! it's an awesome course with helpful information to aid in a student's understanding of our country.

    Course highlights:

    I really liked the simulations Mr. Cranston did. He is extremely intelligent and very informative in his lectures. I loved learning about the presidents and what changes they made to our country.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take lots of notes and read the textbook. Also, read the books he assigns and have fun learning!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would indubitably recommend this course to all high school students because of the fact that it prepares you for college life in all aspects. The course work is heavy, the reading is tedious and time-consuming, and the test in May is extremely stressful, but it is 100% worth every minute of pain. AP U.S. History was an integral part of my high school career. It was a journey for me that I travelled and do not regret. AP U.S. History is an academic journey that helps you to be able to separate your high school years from "inexperienced underclassman years" to "intellectual upperclassman years". I highly suggest that all students take this course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were being able to discover the work ethic inside of myself. Loads of studying and homework helped me to discover how prepared I really am for college life. I learned massive amounts of historical fact and theory. I also earned how to correctly prepare for a massively important exam.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, time is essential. You must be fully committed to it and it must take priority over your other classes. You need time to read, take notes, and brainstorm every chapter that you read (you will read every chapter of the extremely large textbook). You need to be able to focus and commit your brain to memorizing facts. This course is all factual memorization.
