That’s a Ten
High school comes around and honors classes are punching you hard. The year is drawing to a close and the new class registration form is passed around signifying the new year of school. You look at the list, and see the inviting embrace of the honors classes and the dreaded AP classes. Some free information from a trusted junior: take the classes you think are best for your skillset. Choosing the honors classes is the most obvious choice, as this will show that you don’t settle for the minimum, willing to do work and shoulder the hard labor, while involving yourself in situations that do not require that you sell your soul to the devil known as calculus or to destroy your body slaving over essay after essay. Achieving honors classes means achieving balance and social mediocrity. You clearly do not overachieve but you do not also become a bottom-feeder. However, what is truly crucial is that you must pick the classes you have a vested interest in what you study and what you feel to be an acceptable class you think you can pass.
