So, I'm planning out my senior year and so far I've decided upon:
AP Calculus AB
AP English Literature
Marine Biology H
Latin IV H
However, my Dad, guidance counselor, and one of my teachers who is really concerned with my future all have been telling me not to "force it" with the APs. They told me to drop AP Psychology (which is a joke but tedious in its workload) and take an easier course or even a second study hall. I was thinking of taking a business elective known as "School-to-Career" which is basically a class where you act as a teacher aid for someone while they teach another class. (Like I could be a teacher aid for Ms. XYZ while she teaches Freshman Bio I period 3)
Its basically a study except its supposed to give you valuable "career" experience. Most people just regard it as a joke, since no one shows up and people just use it as an excuse to go get Dunkin Donuts.
