By popular demand, The College Board has decided to bring back AP Lunch and will reintroduce it in all MCPS schools starting next year for students with an appetite for learning about lunch.
Honors Lunch and on-level Lunch courses will also be available for students who do not think they can handle keeping up with the demanding course load that comes with AP Lunch. Starting in the 2021-2022 school year, taking a Lunch course will become a graduation requirement for all students.
“I think I’ll probably just take Honors Lunch, there’s no reason to stress myself out over the AP test and it’s not like I want to major in Lunch in college anyway,” WCHS student Reese Piece said.
The course was first introduced at WCHS during the 2014-2015 school year, but stopped being offered after mass criticism and outrage from parents.
“It’s ridiculous, I’m not going to pay $90 for my kid to write a DBQ about whether a hot dog is a sandwich or not,” WCHS parent Benedict Cucumber said.
Despite this backlash from parents, The College Board has decided the pros of bringing the class back outweigh the cons and that they must cater to students who are hungry to learn more about the history of the beloved meal.
“We need to educate students about the rich history of lunch and prepare them for the future, and bringing back AP Lunch is the only way.” College Board President Jeremy Singer said. “It would be irresponsible of me to not offer this class to students.”
For students planning to take this course, The College Board recommends brushing up on the food groups over the summer to prepare for a year of vigorous and challenging, yet delicious content.
Future AP Lunch students can look forward to field trips to the best lunch spots in Montgomery county, analyzing cookbooks and even special guest speakers including famous chef Guy Fieri.
“It’s an opportunity I just couldn’t pass up,” Fieri said. “I can’t wait to teach all these kids about Flavortown.”
