It’s important that your home life not affect your school life. Sometimes issues at home become an excuse for not doing your schoolwork. It can be overwhelming, I know, because I did the same thing.

Students not only have to worry about losing class time that prepared them for AP testing. The Smart Balance test was taken by juniors and was used to see how much knowledge 11th graders have accumulated....
