Juniors and Seniors! Are you looking for an interesting and insightful class to take? AICE Psychology may be the class for you! The class focuses on Psychological Research studies that help with the understanding of human and animal behavior. The class is not only for AICE students, its for everyone! But, if you are working towards your AICE diploma, AICE Psychology is one of only two classes that can be counted as a science or humanities credit. If you want to learn all about human behavior, AICE Psychology is the elective for you!


Juniors, you have to take Government and Economics next year, why not earn college credits taking AP US Government & Macroeconomics?  The Advanced Placement Program (AP) offers students the opportunity to take college-level courses and exams in high school and earn college credit. Taking AP helps students prepare for college and stand out in the admissions process. Completing the course and exam shows perseverance to tackle/complete college-level work. Exposure to advanced coursework increases graduation and college-going rates. Research shows that students who take AP courses and exams have better college outcomes than their peers who don’t take AP. The latest findings also indicate the value of scores beyond earning college credit.   By earning college credit in high school and skipping introductory courses in college, you save time and money as you focus on your college major.   


Trying to figure out which elective you should take next year? Look no further! You will experience writing in a non FSA format where you are free to write while listening to music, and writing about objects, looking at nature to name a few. In the first quarter, we participate in NPR’s This I Believe Essay activity. We create a safe classroom culture or discussion is the norm and it is positive.  In quarter two, we use Cat in the Hat to take a look at characterization. Also, we analyze Kate Chopin’s Story of an Hour and watch a few student clips to compare the versions. The rest of the time is spent on a creative writing project of your choice! There is no homework. We do it all in class! If you don’t like to write/ type, I have found ways to include technology into all of the assignments. In short, even if you don’t like to write, this elective is for you!
