A question and answer on the Gunn High School Course Selection FAQ (about taking a zero period class) clearly spells out that Gunn High School students are "limited to a maximum of 7 classes".
(7th question from the top on the following page)
However, a pdf of a presentation given to incoming Palo Alto High School parents words the answer to a similar question by stating that "freshmen are not permitted to take 8 classes". This implies that sophomores, juniors and seniors at Palo Alto High School CAN take 8 classes, doesn't it? CAN they? Or is this just a poorly worded answer?
