You should receive an email from your teachers that give homework, and the AP history classes are usually the only classes that give summer homework for rising sophomores (including AP World).
It shouldn't be a big deal, just be sure to hand them in at Camp Stuy Part II.
Yes, it's yours to keep! However, you will need to buy a new locker next year if you want one, so you won't be able to save money that way.
Yes! Go to the floor of the AP of that textbook's subject and teachers should be set up with scanners to let you return that book.
Do we have to take both our hallway AND gym locker home? If I have a locker buddy, does only one of us take it home and the other has to buy their own new lock?
Only take home your gym lock if you're a junior (you keep it for three years). As for your locker buddy, you would both need to pay for a new lock next year anyway, so whoever needs a lock for outside of school can take it.
Take home your personal lock, and if you're a junior, also take home your gym lock.
You can go to Moran's office to find out your combo, and then you should take your lock home, because if not it'll get taken by him and you'll lose it.
My metrocard is no longer functional because of a minor scratch, so who I can ask to get a new card?
You can stop by the college office and fill out a form, and they'll have a new one for you within a few days.
If a senior science elective doesn't fulfill the senior elective requirement, wouldn't the senior electives just take up a period that would have been a language class in the previous years?
Technically yes, but if you decide to take a fourth-year of language (which many people do,) it wouldn't.
If I wait until senior year to take science electives, will they fulfill the science AND senior electives requirement?
It wouldn't fulfill both.
You can get 3; but it's something that, depending on your situation, you can talk to the College Office about and find a solution that works for you!
What do you do if your competitive swimmer and you're placed in swim gym? Will the teachers make you swim laps or will you do the same thing as everyone else?
It would be up to the teacher and how they choose to run the class; different swim teachers have different policies about it. For example, Ms. Choy lets the more advanced swimmers go to the deep side of the pool and do special tasks and demonstrations.
Did you have to get a tuberculosis test for Stuy? One of my friends did and it's on the form, but i'm terrified of needles.
Medical forms are important and necessary, so I would talk to your doctor about alternatives and other ways to be able to meet the requirements so you can attend Stuy!
Human Diseases or Topics in Neurobiology? I've heard a lot of good things about both, and read up about them on the stuy.edu website, but still can't decide.
At the point where you have done the research and gotten a wide variety of opinions, it really is up to you! Students often have wholly different opinions of the same class and there is never a singular way to rate a class, but the best thing you can do is what you've already done-- the research.
I also recommend that you write out a positive and negatives list for each-- having to put it in writing helps you see everything in perspective and more closely compare the pros and cons. An important question to consider is, what do YOU want to get out of the class? Is it a class you want to enjoy yourself in, or is it a class you want an easier grade in? You should think about what factors matter the most, personally -- the workload, the teacher, the period that it is taught, the classroom vibe-- these are all things that matter to some but not others, and affects what kinds of students the elective attracts. Do the students who take the class and reccommend it have similar qualities to you?
Has anyone ever said no when a teacher/security asked to take their phone and what would happen if we did??
No one says no; it would probably lead to a lot more trouble than it's worth!
Yes! You would need to do it through the Collegeboard website.
You will be able to find your grades online at mystudent.nyc so nothing bad will happen, but you will miss out on saying goodbye to your big sibs before the summer! :(
Throughout the next month, as finals take place, there will be tables set up for textbook returns when you come in to take tests.
SAT fee waiver do expire right? I had received a fee waiver for the 2016-17 school year although I would like to take an August Exam, which is for 2017-2018 school year.
You should visit the College Office (room 225) before school ends to have it clarified/corrected.
I heard that everyone is expected to go to Part II of Camp Stuy but I will be on vacation. What should I do on the first day, since I won't have a chance to buy some stuff?
On the first day, you will have an extended homeroom in the morning. Let your big sibs and homeroom teacher know that you had to miss Camp Stuy, and need to be filled in! Nothing that happens at Camp Stuy Part II is extremely urgent, so you will have time to catch up in the first few days.
