I think that in high school it is important to be independent because that’s exactly what high school is preparing us for. It’s about becoming the person you will be when you leave high school; we are equipped for high school and they’re gong to equip us for the world beyond school. From choosing our own courses keeping grades up, and keeping up with homework, we have to become independent in order to
I’m preparing myself to raise a child. High school changed everything in my life. I one was good at math, I never had so many teachers leave at one time, my taste in friends was proven to be a typical high school experience, and my free time changed. After Senior year I’m not looking forward to adult for the rest of my
Conveyer belt system issues Theodore R. Sizer in his essay "What High School Is" illustrates that high school has become a conveyor belt educational system, in which the students” take subjects” just to achieve the vaguely defined state standards and ill-defined school goals. This system has been in place for many years, and no one has attempted to change it. In this system some students are happy taking subjects and agree that it is necessary during high school education. The parents are happy because it is what they did in the high school; the most important ritual being graduation. But the important question now is, are the students really happy taking subjects?
The pain and agony due to the fact that I might not be prepared for college class was on my shoulders. Since day one of highschool, my biggest desire throughout school was to be engaged in learning while being well prepared for the next step in life: college. What class was the answer to this class desired? It was in a meeting with my guidance counselor in eighth grade that struck me and sparked the interest in my heart to do well. All of my highschool career I have never known what it actually meant to do well and be ¨successful.¨
Being a Web leader can help me become more aware of these things, and make me a better person, while helping others. I will still know these kids, and when they even come to high school, and when i am a senior, I can help them as a freshman too. This program can impact my life, and everyone is nervous on the first day of school, and the teachers can only do so much. Taking them on a tour answering questions, can all make them feel less nervous. Hearing it from a student that has gone to Transit will be easier than a teacher, because we were once in their
I filled out the application to get accepted and the same day I got called for an interview. Once I got past the interview, I had to go on campus and take a test to make sure I was going to be able to handle college classes and this program. After going through all this, I received a packet in the mail letting me know I got accepted. While all my friends were upset I was leaving and claimed that I was "missing out on the high school experience" I knew that going to Middle College would only lead me closer to success. I started my first day at Middle College and I knew no one.
I was shaking as I had never done before. Today was the last day of middle school. Even though I was afraid I knew I was going to make the best out of my last day. In went through my morning routine and went to Graduation. We practiced for the real ceremony and went through the whole graduation twice.
It was the first time I had to overcome an obstacle like this and also it was very hard because of the timing of the move being right before the start of my junior year in high school. This experience was very beneficial for me as a person because it helped me relate to how others that may not have as many friends or are put into a new situation feel when they are forced out of their comfort zone. The mindset I went into this situation was that it was an opportunity for me to change into anyone I wanted to be and that was exciting for me. It helped me to improve my social skills in my new school in order to make all new friends and I know that these same skills will help me in the future for a job or going off to college where I will encounter the same obstacles as I was faced with when I moved to
Just getting good grades wasn’t enough, I had to earn it with ease. I had to show my invincibility and superiority. It was only the first year of middle school, but everyone was already restless about high school, including me. Plan ahead and be ahead, impress the eyes around me. I calculated each of my efforts to meet the expectations of each class and its teacher.
There will be a lot of tutoring opportunities if you are struggling with a subject. Also, know your teachers and coaches are there for you. The social life in high school will change drastically over the years. The friends you have now 90% of the time won’t be the friends you end up with.
Skirting the Commons are teachers, waiting excitedly with large, welcoming smiles as they watch their new pupils fill the commons. Just like the Freshman, many of these teachers are nervous to start their first year at Conifer High School; to teach their new students; to make an impression. “This will be my first year with Conifer; my second year teaching,” said John Shipley, the newest member to Conifer High’s athletics department. “I’m very excited to be a part of this school, staff, administration and the great community.” “[Like the Freshmen,] I’m lost finding rooms,” said David Shirk, Conifer’s new Algebra and Geometry teacher.
Funds for My Roller Coaster Ride of a Life Bear with me here. It will probably come to your surprise that I just decided what I wanted to do for a living a week ago. One of the main things that has helped me decide was the positive and supportive environment at Haysville High School. HHS has given me a scholarship opportunity that I am incredibly thankful for.
Our dad would have been 76 today. I miss him as much today as I did the day he left his earthly body behind to transcend into the heaven. The older I get the more I realize just how lucky we were to call him Pops! I wouldn't be the man I am today without his guidance.
