Feedback on Academic Rigor from Youth Truth Advisory Survey
  • Most of my teachers apply themselves with an enthusiasm about their subject which is contagious, and this really helps me as a student to gain interest and do well in the subject they teach.”
  • “In my school they provide us with AP classes which are college level courses which prepares me for college. And because of this I feel like I'm already a college studentand not in high school.”
  • “Having more challenging classes will help mechallenge myself in the future and help me understand what I'm against in a career.”
