On Academics: at my school we offer a lot of Ap and Honor classes. So by the time graduation comes we have more credits than we really need.

On Academics: There are two pathways that a student can choose: art or computer science. I do not think that a student can easily change his or her schedule from requesting from the counselor. It is difficult, and I've heard a lot about students who stress and struggle with the inability of changing courses. If a student is put into AP and cannot juggle the workload, they cannot leave the AP to go into honors or regular. They are stuck with that course.

On Academics: Students are offered Ap courses. All classes are considered honors courses. Counselors start students on certain educational tracks requiringeach student to take certain classes to develop their skills.

On Academics: So classes they offer don't stay there long due to the lack of education funds. In some classes they have no books resources however you do learn.

On Academics: The academics are pretty standard. Honors and Gifted courses are offered, but AP is only offered in one subject. The workload isn't at all intense and there are very few extracurricular courses offered.
