Strongsville AP Students Aren't Letting Strike Stop their Learning
With teachers on the picket lines, high schoolers are teaching themselves
The AP student meet in the media center for most of the school day, working in study groups and even dividing up into classes.
"Students study together and even deliver lectures of new material to each other based on our own independent study," said Ryan Lawler, a senior.
The group has also launched a website, AParmy.weebly.com, to serve as a "resource for the dedicated AP students of Strongsville High School."
"While there may be some occasional chaos, confusion, and general apathy among several of the classes at the high school, we, as AP students, need to keep our act together and remain self-motivated so that we can still perform well on the AP tests this coming May," the site says.
It includes tabs with study material and assignments for each AP class and has gotten more than 2,000 hits, Lawler said.
Lawler said the school administration and aides have helped the students create an atmosphere where they can learn, and said some of the substitute teachers have also assisted.
The website says that with no way of knowing how long the strike will last, the AP kids have to stay focused.
"There's more to our school than just kids yelling and twerking in the hallways," it says.
