by Gerardo Hurtado, class of 2020 AP European History intimidates many incoming sophomores. But I will say that the course is immensely valuable in terms of academic skills; and further, I believe that it is nearly essential to future academic success. The course spans four centuries of European history and the development of wars, religion, and nations. It is relatively pain-free; each day, the teacher lectures for fifty minutes. We follow lecture notes, printed packets containing every detail (the bolded […]
by Elina Shibata, Class of 2020 In Anatomy, you will learn the anatomical terms, chemistry, cell biology, histology, about the integumentary system, osteology, participate in dissection labs, etc. You will learn about systems and functions in depth and I like this class because it is very interactive and you are able to learn about everything in your body in depth. This class has increased my passion to pursue a career in the health field. Even if you are not looking […]
Gift Nnamdi, Class of 2019 Behind every image is a complex story that shapes an artist’s intention and mirrors life in unexplainable ways. Whether it is appeasing gods through ritualistic activities, pleasing the church with commissions of majestic paintings of religious figures, or seeking abstract ways to deal with catastrophic wars, Art History is a discipline that transcends a scholar squarely into the political, sociological, and religious climate of various cultures. Art History is like studying a visual language that […]

Student blog post by Uyen Huynh, Class of 2020 I believe that upcoming students should take honors to challenge themselves and to improve their skills in English. The students in English III Honors class do Daily Writing Assignments; this practice method helps students practice, review, and get help on English grammar and skills. The timed writes and the flip charts given to each student is what I consider valuable in this class.

Student Blog post by Alexander Soria, class of 2020 Throughout high school I have taken classes that everyone takes. The usual math, science, English, history, and foreign language. However, my junior year I set out to learn something new, while still working with the academic goals that I set out for myself. Therefore, I chose to take AP Art History, one of the classes that have taught me a lot. When people hear about this class, they think about just […]
