For students who experienced problems with the advanced placement (AP) exams last year, Collegeboard’s decision to offer tests both online and in-person provides hope. “I took three AP tests last year and I enjoyed the less stressful environment and shorter test. However, I felt some people had an advantage based on their choice to cheat, and the shorter test did not allow for enough opportunity to express content mastery in the courses I took. I think tests being in person allows for equal opportunity for more students and makes a more standard testing experience,” Kennesaw Mountain Magnet junior Daniela Binns said.

Literature teacher Lindsay Theaker remembers the craze leading up to New Year’s Eve in 1999, eventually culminating in a relatively peaceful new year that avoided major disaster and apocalypse. “I remember distinctly that my parents unplugged all the electronics in the house and they were super panicked about the date setting on the computer which only went to 1999, and they were super freaked out about what would happen at midnight. I remember thinking it felt silly, but we went along with it, and they were totally fine,” Theaker said.

Although times and technology change, NC’s yearbook remains constant. Year after year, the yearbook staff compiles NC’s history into a neatly laid-out book, detailing the people and events that make the school. “I often tell my yearbook staff that they have the pulse of the school. This year, our pulse rate has slowed because there just isn’t as much going on. We knew going into this year that gathering content would be our biggest challenge if we continued to approach the yearbook in the same way that we always had, so we decided to shift our focus away from the school at large and focus more on the individual students who are still thriving in their own ways,” Yearbook Advisor Stacy Baldwin said.
