Teachers recommend classes to the masses

Nathan Zhang, opinion chief

Each year, teachers are obligated to meet with each individual student to discuss how they have progressed through out the year, and whether or not they should take an accelerated class or academic class the next year.

These meetings, known as Teacher Recommendation Day, will be held on Friday, Jan. 29.

“Teachers meet with us every year to discuss the courses we will take the next year. They basically sign your paper and recommend you for classes,” sophomore Brooke Baker said.

Depending on how you did in the year, students will either be recommended to attend an accelerated class or academic class the following year, based off the teacher’s judgment.

“Your teacher’s recommendation means a lot, as they usually know what’s best for you. You can choose to ignore what your teacher has to say, but you should heed their advice,” Baker said.
