In a recent survey of four classes two thirds of the freshman are willing to take AP classes while one third are not having it.

Both AP and Non AP students at Del Campo recently took a survey about taking AP classes. There are many different opinions on campus about this topic. 72% of the students said that you should take them while 18% said that you shouldn’t. 9% answered maybe. The largest group that said no is freshmen. 

Out of the 72% that said yes, most of them said that they take AP classes because it is a fun experience,even if it is harder than a regular class, and that they enjoy the challenge. Others said they were required to take AP classes because they are in AVID.  

Yes, AP classes do come with a lot of added stress. However, most students think it is worth it in the end because when you take the AP test then you get college credits so it is less money later on in life. 

Of the 18% of the students who said no, some stated that it would be too much stress on them or that they already can’t handle regular classes.

School puts a lot of stress on  students but AP students get pressured more than regular students because the workload is far more intense. So the choice of taking AP classes depends on the amount of work students are willing to do, and the amount of stress they think they can handle. 

 

Freshman: Out of 29 surveys 58% said yes and 34% said no and 6% answered maybe

AP Students: Out of 36 surveys 83% said yes 5% said no and 11% answered maybe

All: Out of all 65 surveys 72% said yes 18% said no and 9% answered maybe
