What to do when signing up for dual enrollment


Alyssa Sutterfield, Staff Writer

  The scheduling forms for the 2019 – 2020 school year have been released to the students at Lakeview.

  Next year’s Juniors and Seniors will have the opportunity to take either Dual Enrollment or CTE classes.

  Most students don’t have any idea about what classes they should take or what the big deal is about them. Because of this, some experienced students lent their perspective on these particular classes.

  Senior Delorean Ishmon is currently taking Developmental Psychology classes at Baker.

  Ishmon stated, “Some of the pros are that you can save a lot of money taking these classes right now. Also, the fact that you can leave school early is really nice, because this place gets boring after a while.”

  Senior, Julia Martin is taking AP classes, plus courses through Wayne State University. She also likes the fact that she can leave early too. Martin recommended taking classes at Wayne because of the fact that credits from there can easily travel from one school to another.

  Martin explained, “Even though you have to pay about 300 dollars for the classes at Wayne, you usually don’t have to leave the school, because the professor comes to a classroom at Lakeview or the Wheat building. I think that Wayne is more of a laid back style of college for Juniors who are just taking college classes.”

 Junior Harold Irby is also taking Developmental Psychology at Baker, as well. He in fact thought that he would never like the class as much as actually he does right now.

Irby claimed, “I think taking college classes during high school would be a really good experience for kids. It kinda gets you ready for life after high school by giving you a head start at your degree.”

  If you have any more questions or are curious about what classes might be good to take for the future, go appointment to see your counselor for any additional information.
