Nogales has added many classes this year, that are now available for students.
During the 2017-2018 school year, the classes being offered are advanced for those who want a challenging experience.
AP Art was recently added. Mr. Sotelo, the art teacher at Nogales states, “AP Art is for students who want to attempt a higher-level art course prior to attending their chosen college.”
This class is for students who have a passion for art and those who want to improve their art skills.
“The AP requirements are simple: 24 artworks which demonstrate exploration of a chosen area (drawing, 2D design, or 3D design) and concentration on a chosen theme.”
Every student has to create a portfolio and they can include anything they want in it based on their interests.
Another class added this year is AP Environmental Science taught by Mr. Amezcua. This class emphasizes the need and importance of taking care of the environment. Mr. Amezcua explains, “There is a minimum of 1 lab activity or field trip per week mandated by the AP College Board for the class. Students are experiencing, first hand, the concepts that relate to the environment and the problems that exist in the world.”
Most of the assignments in this class include a reflective portion where the students must express their opinions on how helping the environment makes them feel.
Mr. Amezcua maintains, “No one will protect what they don’t care about. No one will care about what they have never experienced.”
This class teaches students the importance of appreciating their environment and the several ways they can make a difference in it.
Both of these new AP classes provide a challenge, but fun learning environment. These classes will give students more choices on what they want to learn about to expand their future endeavours.
