Freshman year I was wondering if I should enroll into AP classes. After considering all my options and attending an AP class, I decided that the AP program would be the best for me. I would say it was a great decision because I have learned so much from my AP classes, which allow me to do independent work and make me rely on myself about everything. They have helped to shape my thought process as well as my academic choices.
