Olivia Walker started this petition to Corona High School Administration

As a highly involved member of the class of 2020, I left Corona High's senior registration appalled and distressed by the way that this year's schedule had been organized. Both of the advanced math classes offered for seniors (AP Statistics and AP Calculus BC) are only being offered once- during 6th period. In addition to this alarming fact, there are practically no advanced options offered during 5th period (personally, I'm striving to get into an Ivy League school this year, and my counselor put me in ceramics).

After speaking with a multitude of my fellow classmates, I discovered that a majority of my highly-involved friends were facing the same issue. Only offering these classes during 6th period is discriminatory and ostracizing for the high-achieving students who are being forced to choose between their GPA and their athletics or their arts. Allowing this to carry on as it has been established would personally destroy my dream of being a part of advanced theater, while at the same time dropping the GPA that I have spent 4 years working tirelessly for.

The Corona Administration needs to intervene and establish a 5th period AP statistics or AP Calc BC class in order to include its hardworking seniors and to embody the culture of success that we, as a school, try to promote and emulate.
