High school can be intimidating, a new world compared to middle school. Along with a larger student body and campus, advanced placement classes begin to play a larger role.
AP classes are designed to prepare students for a college career, and come with a number of challenges. Mass amounts of homework, projects, and quizzes add to the intimidation of high school.
“WHAP has added to the intimidation of high school because it’s already so big and then there are higher level academic classes to worry about,” sophomore Vivian Valentin said, “AP classes will get me ready for the higher level classes in college, and I’ll already have the experience in higher academic class because of my AP classes.”
Although these new challenges present obstacles to a high school career, AP classes are not a requirement to graduate. They are recommended.
AP classes aid in the development of life skills. With an increase in work loads compared to on level classes, students will find new challenges outside of the classroom. Between studying, notes and homework, students may spend hours outside of school hours preparing for their AP assignments.
“Well, I would say the hardest part is trying to balance the course loads,” senior Brandon Scott said, “You have so many classes and work for all of them, and trying to manage your time to do them all within the due dates.”
