    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoyed my teacher. He made the class fun and I learned a lot. Did you know the rate of velocity of an object in free fall is 9.8m/s? He was able to help me with whatever I needed help with and he provided a hands-on learning environment.

    Course highlights:

    My teacher wanted to demonstrate Newton's first law of physics to the class so he laid on the lab bench with a cinder block on his chest. He then had a student pick up a sledge hammer and hit the cinder block as hard as he could. Thankfully, his experiment succeeded and he didn't get hurt, he proved his point, and it was a lot of fun watching it!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study! This class can be hard if you don't pay attention to the material being taught to you. Go to class, show up on time, and make the best of it. It can be boring if the teacher doesn't provide fun experiments or you simply just don't care.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is the epitome of a college course. It is fast paced, but with the right method of discipline, you can keep up with the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much more chemistry that I remember as opposed to my Chemistry class two years ago. It helped me to understand chemistry a little more. I learned about Ecology, Biochemistry, the importance of water (the science of it), energy transfer in cells, etc. There's a lot more to learn and it's only been a semester!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not slack off in this course. If you do, I promise you, you will regret it later on in the year. Everything builds up, is added on. So if you decide not to pay attention for a quarter of the class; you will literally have to learn what you missed in order to move on smoothly. Also, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE create a study group. You cannot take this class alone and easily survive.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even though it is an AP course, it is definitely taken at a smooth pace. You learn so much information, and not at an alarming rate. The course isn't overly difficult, but you've got to apply yourself and put in the proper work. Ms. Bofinger doesn't want any of her students doing poorly, and she gives many chances to succeed in the classroom. She is very understanding, and easy to communicate with, plus the class is so much fun!

    Course highlights:

    A lot of background knowledge on the nature of New Hampshire. I'm not a New Hampshire native, but I learned so much about the history of the land and the state during this course. You also gain running start credit if you choose to pay the fee at the start of the school year - which is highly recommended! You get college credit just for passing the course, and it is accepted by many colleges and universities across the country! The trips are definitely fun, a good break from the average school day, and the class environment is always great.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do it, it is a fun class with many field trips and experiences in and out of the classroom. If you love the outdoors, this is definitely a course for you, and even if you don't love the outdoors, this class is extremely informative.
