Chill class. We would be sitting around either on our phones or talking most of the time. If planning to take the AP exam, prepare to self study everything.

AWESOME TEACHER!!! ms young is a good person to ask for help personally, she can explain clearly for you! She knows her material, just no one takes her seriously and thus they blame their low scores o

So cool and her tests are okay, easy compared to Mynster's. We can eat and come late to class. She's chillax, sometimes I feel bad because her class slacks off so much even though it's an AP class. She doesn't care if you pay attention, but if you do it actually helps and pays off. She's pretty good at explaining if you ask her to. We love you Mrs. Young! :)

wonderful teacher, grades fairly, but PAY ATTENTION. Notes are VERY helpful, and very clear. however, she grades easily, and if you are in AP, that may not be of much help during the AP test in May. Despite this, I LOVE the gal :)

Loved her, best class I ever had. If you just pay attention to her lecture notes, I am sure you will get an A out of her class!

Really chill...seems more like a free period than an actual class. I really loved her class but just because I didn't have to do anything, in terms of teaching it was absolutely horribe. If you read the book by yourself and do well on the tests, you can bs the rest.

YOU MUST PAY ATTENTION. Just because she is chill doesn't mean you can slack off or do whatever. If you pay attention her lectures actually do make sense. She's willing to help as long as you ask and she's pretty clear on what she's going to test you on and all that. I think she's helpful; she gave us lots of review to prepare us for our tests and final.

Mrs. Young is one of the worst teachers I have ever had. First of all she has no knowledge of teaching and we basically teach ourselves. SHE'S LAZY! U DONT LEARN ANYTHING AT ALL!

She does teach, but then u also have to go home and read from the book to understand more. If you don't understand something, just ask her. Overall her class is fun and chill.

In AP Chem, she legitimately taught 2 chapters out of the whole book. The rest was BS. I couldn't even take the AP test because she was such a crappy teacher.

Well, you don't have much chance getting a 3 or better on AP unless you get some tutor. (Ask others, they will tell you who is the best tutor around arcadia)

Mrs.Young can't teach. She has mood swings and takes it out on the students. She's worse than Dr. Cromwell. That's how bad she is.
