students to take more challenging classes in these subjects will benefit the
students in the future.
8 If the
last credit had to go to a science, math, or social study, then yes. This will allow
students to further there education in the department they feel they're strongest
9 Its more
of a equal choice to each student.
10 I think
it would be good to have a credit where students can chose to pursue either a
social studies, math or science to a higher level.
just said. but i think that english should be added on the list of class
options to advance in.
12 I think
students should have a choice of picking where they would like to exceed in
13 I think
that we should pick the last credit because we should pick a class we want to
pertain more knowledge in for our future careers.
it will allow student to get a head start by preparing them for their future career
can teach things beyond social studies here. If that was to change, college
would have high school course for other states.
2 I think
that the way that the requirements are set up are exceptional. I think that the
social studies department has the best teachers that prepare us the most for college.
it seems if you give the lee way for students to change the requirements then
they would take the easy way out
that would make it seem like Mt. Edgecumbe is lowering its expectations in its
students. Even though its just taking one required social studies class.
studies classes that we have at MEHS assist students tremendously as their
education evolves during college. This includes the Pacific Rim class. I don't think
that replacing essential social classes that truly do teach students usable information
that is relevant to their lives. I believe a student wishing to go into a different
field will take higher level classes in that area without being forced.
6 No, because
the students who choose to take their classes each have their own reason. If
someone needs more time to learn, then they'll take the required classes at
their own pace. For some students, the requirements have enough rigor as it is.
And for the students that think it's too easy can take advantage of the college
courses MEHS and UAS offer to get their fair share of rigor.
1 I am
neutral on changing it to this b
I would like to see this happen, but I also like the way things are now.

this class makes students aware of the economy around the Pac Rim. I think that
it should be a required class.
4 Pac Rim
has the most significance to what's happening in the world today. It really has
opened my eyes to globalization and make me think globally instead of being wrapped
up in my High School life. I think that Pac Rim is the most beneficial class I
have taken. Mr. Hay is a great teacher and it is the class where analyzing is
PacRim has a lot of information that is valuable after you graduate
6 i didnt
take the class
7 I have
heard students say Pac Rim is hard. I would like to keep Pac Rim in the rigorous
8 I think people
can find another class that would benefit them as much as Pacific Rim.
Although, I think there should be a few to choose from selected by the administration.
i just took pac rim last semest and it was a VERY help ful glass to understand
the status of the rest of the world. and i friend of mine that graduated last
year said it really helped her in one of her collage classes. and i think geography
should be taken out because i didnt learn anything. all the freshmen do in
geography is copy and paste info onto a powerpoint and present it to the whole class.
I believe that if you take away that PacRim as a required class, some students
without the motivation to challenge themselves and take that class wouldn't.
Also when I took this class I learned a lot about something other than Alaska
and the United states. Before taking this class I had no idea what other cultures
were like, I didn't know anything about the outside world. I believe that PacRim
should stay a required class because it really helped me learn more about the
11 As I
have already stated, I know for a fact from communication with alumni that the
Pac Rim class helps them in future studies. Alaska does have a strong tie to that
area in the world, as many of the ethnic groups are related. The Pac Rim class
is relevant to students at MEHS. No other social studies covers an area so close
could take a alternative class
2 so what
i have hear pacific rim is not a really hard class
3 I took
Pac Rim with Dr. Le. He did not teach me anything. We watched the Beijing olympics
for two weeks.
4 To me,
Pac Rim is not that difficult of a class so making it an option would not reduce
the academic rigor (as long as you have to take another rigorous class.
1 I do not
understand the point in Pac Rim but I believe there is a reason.
2 stay as
3 Pac Rim
is a great class that students should take. Very informational, but I think that
some students fall into different strengths and would achieve more and future if
they could use that credit in math or science.
1 I have
enough classes as other which is just as challenging as others.
2 I think
the requirements should be more challenging.
Honestly, If there weren't any requirements. I would only be taking the classes
that interested me at the time being. I probably would opt out of the Math
classes also, instead of being as well-rounded as I am today.
once you hit high school you dont know what you want, thats why high schools
have required classes so that you are prepared for after graduation.
5 I am
more comfortable taking classes recomended
people get to choose their say in the requirements, then I think some people would
get lazy and choose not to do it. It wouldn't be fair for the other kids who
are working their hardest for the others to slack off.
take different paths
are to kindas of students, thoses who want to be the best and thoses who want
to hurry threw high school. I think student that want to work hard should be in
the classes that work them hard compared to the kids who want to goof off
is going in different directions in life
4 I would
like to choose what I wanted
5 It's my
not all of us have to take the classes required.
7 I would rather have a say because it's my
life and my future. If I feel as though I should be studying something else
because of a career choice I should be able to future my education in that
options in classes help develop student interests which allow students to figure
out possible career options.
9 More of
a free choice
10 it would
make me feel more in control of my education
other person knows what you want out of your education and when you want to
learn something. I think setting your own schedules empowers you to choose what
your education entails.
