My college requires at least three years of foreign language and I've only taken two since my sophomore year since my English teacher from eighth grade said I couldn't take it freshman year and now for my senior year I am not in French because of "schedule conflicts" and she said I couldn't take Spanish 1 because they moved it to the freshman and sophomore only classes. She won't change it no matter what.
Your high school should have already appointed you a counselor - a guidance counselor and/or a college counselor. You need an advocate within your high school and you need someone within your high school to sit down with you and help you 'work the system' and work this out.
Who is "she" who won't 'change it no matter what'? Have your parents spoken to this person? Has your college counselor or guidance counselor spoken to this person? 79884
Does your school district offer virtual classes or dual enrollment at a nearby college? If you cannot take the class at your school then try these two alternatives. I know students who have done this because their schedule could not be changed. Make sure your parents go with you to resolve this. Don't settle for a no. The school should work with you to fix this.80012
