No one else can take Marine Biology? Wow?! Junior year here you have a choice of chemestry, anatomy, earth space sciences or marine biology. When I signed up for it last year my regular biology teacher said "Why arent you taking chemestry? You have the grades!" Basically, I am never going to use chemestry post high school, (I will have to take it my senior year though) and marine biology just looks like a cool class. You get to go to the beach (schools like 5min from it) and catch fish and stuff...
We can't take any AP's in my school till Junior Year (except math APs, and i suck at math)
Junior year we can only take one AP (unless you go for a math one, and again i'm bad at math).
Senior year you can take more APs, but my school only offers APs in Bio, Chem, Physics, Stats, Calc, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Music Theory and Computer Science.
History, Languages, and Literature aren't offered as APs in my school =(. I plan on taking the AP Spanish exam anyway. You can take the IBs for History, Lit, and Languages...but they're two year courses and I don't have enough room in my schedule with AP chem. =(
i got out of school on July 21st and go back on August 25th.
I will be taking
AP English Literature
AP US Governemnt and Economics
Senior Internship and Research
Calculus 10A, 10B, and 10C at University of California, San Diego (UCSD) cause i did all the other math courses.
Wow "CruiseLover" you have a one month summer? (I know Dan already said this but I thought it sould be doubly emphasized! : ) ) You must have many breaks during the school year.... like a 4 week Christmas break or something!!! THAT would be awesome!!!
No I only have a 1 month summer and the same breaks as everyone else: 3 days for Thanksgiving, 2 weeks for Christmas, and 1 week for spring break. it is a long school year. i am ok with it cause it is preparing me for college. hopefully i will go to stanford or harvard.
wow. I'll be in grade 10 here (sophmore). I'm in public school, because private school are unheard of around here.
we have no honours, AP, or IB classes for any grade. We basically have regular classes (math, science, english, french, social studies) and in grade 11 we can pick our levels, which are pretty much incredibly stupid, not as stupid, and geeks r us.
also, we have no college prep classes, and none of the cool subjects, like marine biology.
you guys are all very lucky to have so many options.
I go to Cardinal Mooney High, I started (but have gone there since freshman year) today and hate it... No clue why because I was excited to go back but today just sucked! I felt like I was in school for 10 hours. So hopefully tomorrow will be better...
