The Advanced Placement Human Geography national exam falls on May 17, the same day as the seventh-period exams have been scheduled. Many students are exhausted after national exams and tend to just go home, but most of those taking APHuG will forced to stay and then take the seventh-period exam later that day. As a result, APHuG teacher Brooke Owen-Thomas has asked Principal Rick Fleming to allow students to skip classes to study in the media center.

“Mrs. OT was nice enough to let us stay in the media center instead of returning to our classes after we take the national exam,” sophomore Angela Ahern said. “Although we will be tired from taking the exam, at least now we can go somewhere to sit and prepare or study for the next exam later that day.”

Some students have said they will check out of school to go get lunch, or go to the media center.

“I think it’s a good idea because we’re all going to be brain-dead after the exam anyways. We won’t do any work in our classes anyways,” sophomore Kayla Stevens said. “I think she really feels bad that the majority of her students have to take both exams on the same day. I will probably go out to lunch and then come back to school to sit in the media center to study before my next exam.”
