On Thursday January 10th, 2019, the administration and guidance organized a curriculum fair to show incoming freshmen and underclassmen the plethora of options they are offered here at Hylton in terms of class choices.

In the enclosed cafeteria, AP Coordinator Mrs. Megan Baker organized a presentation to raise awareness for Advanced Placement classes. AP and PreAP teachers from different subject areas spoke about AP class myths, advice for students taking AP classes, and how the PreAP program works. Afterwards, current AP students presented the benefits of AP classes and what they wish they knew about AP classes before they started taking them. This presentation was followed by a presentation on the Dual Enrollment English 12 class offered here at Hylton.

Elmer Johnson is an eighth grader currently attending Saunders Middle School. “I’m not positive I’m going to Hylton but the curriculum fair helped play a factor in deciding where I’ll end up going,” said Johnson. “The foreign language classes are what caught my interest the most especially how you can travel to different countries.”

The curriculum fair was also a way for clubs to make themselves known as well. Jonah Smith, sophomore, is the captain of the robotics team. At the curriculum fair, the team is trying to target both current Hylton students and middle schoolers but with more of a focus on middle schoolers. “Current Hylton students, if they’ve shown any interest, they would have come to us already but with the middle schoolers, they don’t have the interest yet and they come to events like these and they’re like ‘Oh, I like it now,’” said Smith.

To any student who is hesitant to take the harder courses, Mr. Stephen Davis, a math and physics teacher here at Hylton, says “Go for it. What do you have to lose?”
