The Harker School Reviews
I would love it if Harker put a stricter limit on tests and homework. It definitely overprepared students for the AP exams, except in history. In many history classes, students are woefully underprepared due to the ineffective flipped classroom approach where students are expected to read the textbook on their own with no teacher instruction. Instead, we have useless discussions which produce absolutely no useful discussion since no one has read the chapters or assigned reading (which accounts for more than half of my homework time).
