Carlmont’s annual course fair was held from Jan. 28 through Jan. 29 in the main gym during lunch to help students select their classes for next year.

During the course fair, students visited booths designated for each subject, manned by teachers and a few students.

Victoria Nilson, an advanced English teacher, said, “Students have choices and they need information about the course content and the work load. It’s helpful for students to go to a venue where they can have their questions answered.”

The course fair gives students a chance to know what to expect of their classes next year. All students have appointments with their guidance counselors from late January to April to choose next year’s classes.

Planning one’s schedule for next year is very critical especially for most sophomores who will be taking AP classes for the first time.

Sophomore Liam Young said, “I want to make sure that I’m in the right classes and I don’t want to under or over challenge myself.”

Nilson believes that the course fair helps students relax and feel more comfortable about their classes next year.

She noted, “They seemed receptive to hearing details of the course content. I think that knowledge is power and any format in which students can obtain knowledge about the choices that they are required to make is a good thing.”
