The following tests will take place at 8 a.m. during the second week: Calculus AB on Tuesday, May 15; English Language and Composition falls on Wednesday, May 16; World History will take place Thursday, May 17; Lastly, Microeconomics will be on Friday, May 18.

AP courses are an excellent opportunity to both prepare for college level work and possibly earn college credit (by doing well enough on the AP exam.)”

— Mr. Craig Golembeiwski, school counselor

Mr. Craig Golembiewski, school counselor, believes AP courses can be beneficial.

“AP classes offer the most rigorous curriculum that any high school can provide,” Golembiewski said. “AP courses are an excellent opportunity to both prepare for college level work and possibly earn college credit (by doing well enough on the AP exam).”

Senior Maikayla Josling decided to not take any AP exam because she wants to save her money.

“Well, I originally took four AP classes first semester, and it really burned me out,” Josling said. “I’ll have to take most of the courses in college anyway, so I just didn’t want to waste the time or the money.”

Unlike Josling, senior Barb Hawes chose to take the AP Microeconomics exam because she feels prepared.

“I decided to take the exam because I feel extremely comfortable with the material,” Hawes said.
