Let's be real

<p>How much of a dip in second semester senior grades is possible <em>if already accepted</em> coming from a rigorous 5 AP schedule?</p>

<p>Not that I am planning on any sort of dip…but each of my teachers’ rationale seems to be “Oh these grades don’t matter, I’ll turn up the heat.” I’m finding this to be my most challenging semester of high school…</p>

<p>Many teachers have trouble fitting all of the AP material into class time. They try extra hard to get the material across before senioritis becomes really bad and everyone is distracted with proms, etc.</p>

<p>Not to mention that they have to have it all covered at least a month before school ends so that you are prepared for the AP exam.</p>

<p>Right on time. It’s like Dean J heard you harriscal1. ;)</p>
