What's your favorite class at Flintridge Sacred Heart and why?

My favorite class is Honors Art Portfolio because it allows me to express myself and truly take control of the class by deciding my own projects and where I want to take them – a creative outlet. I also love this class because of the teacher; Ms. O pushes her students to think outside of the box and puts her faith in us to create meaningful art.
