93 is an A? At my school it is a 97. 93 would be a B+
Yes, 93 is an A... I have never heard of something more than a 90 being considered a B. Do you know how your high school calculates GPAs? (I don't really care how middle school grading works; I know from experience that it can be very strange)

So, I started summer school at my local community college. I'm taking a Pre-Calc class but it's more like a Algebra II review class, so it's not too hard for me. Literally everyone there was Asian though, I'm not kidding. So when the instructor was relating some concept to setting up the table during Thanksgiving, talking about how you put the knife on one side and the forks on the other, some kid shouted out, "We don't celebrate Thanksgiving. Also we just use chopsticks." >.> then some guy made it even worse by saying "ASIANS FTW!!!!!".

e_e. Sometimes these kids that are obsessed with Asians scare me. Seriously; they only thing that they talk about is Asians, and it gets annoying.

In short, he's a guy that makes videos on youtube; most of them are about Asian stereotypes.

I find Kevin's videos hillarious, because in a weird way, they apply to me. xD.

Phineas: Candace I think they prefer "marathoners" and marathoners don't chase anyone, except, maybe 3 Kenyan guys.

...our team is basically all asian...
We had only 1 non-asian person on our entire team this year...
SciOly isn't a big deal at our school, and I think it has become kind of an "asian magnet" here
especially for the handful of people at our school who are probably only doing it to put on their college apps :roll: :x
We're trying to get more people interested this year so hopefully there'll be more diversity...how ironic.

(i'm asian myself though...derp .__.)

Stats for East Stroudsburg South:
White: 62.9%
Black: 17.6%
Hispanic: 17.1%
Asian: 2.3%

I think we're less Asian than everyone here.

East Stroudsburg North is a lot more diverse than us; they have 2.7% Asian. And 43.9% White.

Since I'm in the highest program my district has to offer (PI+), I'm around quite a few Asians. There were 45 people in my grade in PI+ at the end of last year (2 dropped out), and 30 were at least partially Asian (including Indian).*

*Does not include Russians.

There is a much smaller percentage of Asians in the entire school.
100% of deaths are somehow caused by science.
Don't be a statistic.
