Biology is a class that comes to mind because they offer resources such as websites and extensive lab work to help as a visual aid as opposed to just reading a textbook. I have had good experiences with my professors. The professors give several examples of the course work to make sure that you fully understand the subject. Also, my professors offered extra credit work and study guides to help you excel in class. In my opinion the class size differs based on the subject.

I've had one full time semester at this school. A class I really enjoyed was Greg Joseph's history class. He has a very extensive knowledge of history and made the class really interesting and enjoyable. That has been my favorite class so far at this school. Another class I took was Mr. Contreras' English 1 class. I've always been good at writing and taking his class helped me expand my writing ability.
