To begin, I have (Approx.) 3.5 GPA in my highschool. With A's and A-'s but only D+ in English. Don't ask why? Well, even if you did, the reason is because my English teacher is racist against Indian's and Pakistani's.
Initially, she used to cut me down while I was speaking in front of the class and pass on sarcastic comments towards me. I did complain several times but I, literally, have a bad fate. Why? Well, because our vice-principle and my English teacher are very close friends. Therefore, when I complained once about her blithe attitude and her being racists he (Vice-Principle) merely said "ok." The next thing you know he tells my English teacher that I complained about her; therefore, she gets more angry at me and my grade swoops from B+ to a D+. Why? Because I have C- and F's in class participation, which to me is extremely ridiculious because I do participate. Enough about her. To let you guys know that I am really proficient in English, in my Sophomore year, I got an A or an A- in my English class because someother teacher used to teach my class, but she left the school because our vice-principle had fired her to give the HIgh-School English Teacher's position to her very-good friend (My current English teacher).
In any case, with SAT and SAT subject tests going on I, literally, have no time to complain about how I get treated in her class. Ask my soul, he'll tell you that I get treated like I am complete retard in her class. In addition, I know even if I went to complain about her the matter would backfire on me, knowing, I am 100% right.
That is the background, guys. What solution can you guys give me? I really want to go to either Ivy-League or MIT. Please help me out!! Albeit, I have heard taking AP classes at school ( My school doesn't offer any) really boosts up ones grade? If so, how do I get advantage of that?
