Seniors know a lot about the courses offered here at MHS, and with registration coming up, it’s a good idea to talk to the seniors you know if you’re unsure about what classes to take. When talking to the resident seniors here at Breezes, I asked them what course they would highly recommend for students in the younger grades to take. Upperclassmen are a great resource during the registration season, so don’t be afraid to reach out if you don’t know if a course is the right fit for you.

Anna Hoffmann, Editor-in-Chief: Fashion and Interior Design

“As someone who views school as a place for strict academics, these FACS classes were essentially a form of stress relief [for me]. They allowed me to get in touch with my creative side and just have fun. Yes, they are real courses with real grades, but the assignments are enjoyable and have room for a lot of personalization. They’re great to take as an underclassmen, too, to help acclimate to high school.”

Molly Johnson, Copy Editor: IB Physics

“I don’t consider myself to be very science-minded, and really just took this class to get a necessary IB credit, but it ended up being super interesting. There was a unit about energy resources/sustainability, which I think is important and really relevant. We also got to learn some astrophysics, which is unique for a high school course.”

Saahil Chadha, Copy Editor: Science Research

“It’s an incredibly unique and amazing opportunity at Minnetonka; most scientists don’t conduct an entire research project, from proposal, to experimentation, data analysis and communication until they’re upper-level undergraduate or graduate students. Any MHS student looking to go into a STEM field should definitely make taking this class a top priority.”

Maureen Reinhardt, Web Editor: Jewelry I

“I didn’t have to be super worried about my artistic abilities, like drawing. It was all very hands-on, and I learned a lot about metal and felt really accomplished at the end of the semester with everything I’d made. Overall it was hard work physically, but fun, with a lot of creative freedom.”

Wilson Moore, Sports Editor: Team and Dual Sports

“I would recommend taking this class if you need to satisfy your gym credits because it’s a fun and laid-back class where you can choose what to do each day like basketball, kickball, wiffle ball, touch football, and soccer. It’s a great way to break up a day with something fun.”
