Are AP classes hard freshman year? 

I really want to take AP environmental science and AP human Geography for my freshman. Can someone tell me how hard this would be if I am also taking all honor classes? Also how do I get into the class?

I would say yes, ALL AP classes are hard. However, those two classes are generally considered to be a little easier because they don't require as much background knowledge. Kids take them in ninth grade all the time, and many are successful. Remember, freshman year is often a big period of adjustment. Try not to take more than you can handle. I'd choose one of the two.
