taking year long course in high school over two years

<p>I am interested in taking a student government class at my school, but it does not follow the typical school year schedule. It is from the spring semester to the fall semester instead of fall to spring. I also need my visual arts requirement which is a fall to spring yearlong course.</p>

<p>Would it be bad for me to take an art class in fall semester of Junior year, then student government from spring to fall, then the second semester of the same art class spring of junior year?</p>

<p>My counselor said it is frowned upon by colleges/universities.</p>

<p>Hero is my desired schedule:</p>

<ol>
<li>AP Chem</li>
<li>AP Stats</li>
<li>AP Calc 2</li>
<li>AP Spanish</li>
<li>English 3H</li>
<li>Art / student government</li>
</ol>

<p>track after school</p>

<p>senior year:
1. AP Bio
2. AP Psych
3. AP English
4. AP Econ
5. student government / Art
6. Conditioning /Track</p>

<p>I don't think that Cornell would be unique on this matter, whatever the answer is.
I wonder if there is some other reason your guidance counselor has said this...
if the art class like Painting 1 and Painting 2, where conceivably you would get some value out of Painting 1 even if you never took Painting 2?
I can't think of any rationale for this being frowned upon. how else are students expected to take student government?</p>

<p>I don't see why that would be frowned upon, especially since you are finishing the art class in the second semester of your senior year. You should be fine.</p>
