Are AP's really necessary?
Original post made by Parent on Oct 6, 2010
Is it really necessary for children to work as hard in school as adults? Shouldn't they be able to enjoy life just a bit before becoming an adult?
Do the Ivy's and UCs and Northwesterns really only admit AP students? I read that AP courses are valuable because it separates the motivated from non-motivated students. However, most of our students are motivated anyway and PAUSD schools are not easy. Not like we have a whole lot of weak students and the few need to rise to the ranks of APs to get a decent class. The weak students here are still superior to most other schools. How good is a top GPA without AP classes?
