What about music/art type class?

Music is an optional course you can take and D.D.P. covers the art requirements so art is not offered.

Current Brooklyn Tech freshman, muh schedule is:

Intermediate Band (music elective)
English 9 OR D.D.P (alternates on even and odd days, double period)

Physics (you take Living Environment if you didn't take the regents in middle school)

Gym OR Physics Lab (Lab is once a week, Gym is two or three times per week)

These are the best classes you can take as a frosh, you will take most AP courses on junior/senior depending on your major/what you choose to take.

I was being told (at the open house) that the first year (9th grade) they pretty much give you your schedule of classes - 8 periods, + 2 extra you may take if you wish.
