When I started attending East Mountain I experienced an immense amount of reading assignments compared to a regular class, but it didn’t stop me from doing my best. Although it was the most work I had done throughout my years of high school, the complexity of the class only challenged me to work harder and to read in between the lines. My intentions for next year are to work twice as hard and improve my reading, critical thinking, oral, and analytical skills in English 1102.
These classes are more rigorous than the regulars classes offered at my school. The classes have made me focus a lot on my studies and how to ration out my time properly to do well in the class. Thus, making me better at time management and also improved my study skills. Last year i was inducted into NHS, which has made me a lot more responsible. I’ve had to volunteer in the community which is actually great to experience.
In middle school I had difficulty with math I did not know I had to find another way to learn, in high school I decided to make it my favorite sudject. My freshman year I stayed after school most of the time with help me alot for the next years in high school. Repetition was the key to solve my problem.
To conclude, my school counselor has helped me overcome multiple barriers and obstacles over the course of my time with her.

My counselor helped me figure out my course schedules throughout high school, helped me find and apply for many scholarships, and also helped me get into college. Thanks to my counselor I have a future ahead of
The challenges I have faced influenced my academic performance and guided me into pursuing my college education. My junior year was a struggle for me. I decided to challenge myself like I have never been challenged before. I took on an honors class that I clearly wasn 't ready for, but I stuck with it and was determined to finish. In the beginning the intensity surprised me and I did not do as well as I would have liked to.
During my freshman and sophomore years of high school I took Spanish. It was a great experience to immerse myself in a different language and culture. I think every student in high school should take a language course because it makes for a better well rounded education. People who speak spanish as a main language are becoming more prominent in the United States, so it would be good to know at least the basics in case of an emergency. For example, I work at a Dunkin Donuts and sometimes someone who does not speak english with come in.
In eighth grade, I was known to be an overachiever. I would tried to win in any competition. First, it was academic. Getting on the honor roll or effort roll list was everyone 's dream at my school. There was bragging rights to be listed on the honor roll list because you had to get A’s and B’s, which was a very difficult task at my elementary school.
Throughout high school, I excelled in the classroom and I pride myself in this accomplishment. I currently on course for receiving an Academic Honors diploma come graduation at the end of May. An academic Honor diploma requires each student to take at least three years of a foreign language, at least 2 Advanced Placement classes, and all honors courses for each class, if provided. Occasionally, keeping up with all these high level classes posed a challenge, especially with extra curricular activities, but staying focused on achieving superb grades for collegiate purposes earnestly reassured me to continue to work hard. My current GPA is 4.046, which I am extremely proud of and this GPA ranked me 9th out of 140 students in the senior class.
Of course, I was a student that hoped to attend an accredited university, but in order to, I knew I had to get outstanding grades. I was a hard worker throughout high school, and tried my best every year. I was really motivated to take AP courses as a freshman, unfortunately my school only provided honors, but I found out later that it acted as a substitute, and was accepted just the same. I took advantage of anything they had handed to me. My priorities at this moment are maintaining an outstanding GPA all through high school, and promoting quality leadership in everything I do.
In life, you can go through a lot but only a few people actually can bounce back. In High School I’ve gone through many trials and tribulations to get to the point I’m at now. I’ve been held to high standards based on the classes I’ve taken. My Honors classes built the foundation for me to start challenging myself and kill the procrastination problem I possessed in my young academic career. The Honors classes prepared me for the Advanced Placement classes that were offered.
I expect it to be really challenging and hard. From what I have heard you get a lot of homework and essays. Since my teachers in middle school are really good I don’t think I will have a problem in high school. I also expect high school to be a lot of fun. It will be fun because I get to have classes with my friends and I get to do fun activities like gym and different clubs.
Kyle Kling 14 October 2014 English 100-24 Professor Hall Academics to Six Flags Commitment and hard work can pay off for you in school in many ways. Those two things for me brought me to Six Flags Great America for a class field trip. In order for the students to go on the field trip they had to earn a 3.0 GPA or better. For me, this was really hard to accomplish because I was only an average student back then. As time went on in school, I realized if you put your mind to something you can accomplish it.
A School where you are surrounded by people of all ages, you are taught by real college professors and have to take responsibility for yourself. This was a huge step for me, along the way I fumbled and sort of slipped of track, but my devotion for my dream of attending college and entering the health profession pulled me right back on tract. My whole life I have been devoted to education and striving to do better. My strive for bettering myself and reaching my goals and dreams will never stop, no matter
I am Jimmy Nguyen, a graduate from the S.T.E.M(Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program of L.V Berkner High School. Unlike the classmates in the class, I am the type of person that will work hard in order to achieve a goal that would eventually help me hit my milestone. My strengths are being able to work with classmates, fighting back procrastination, and hardworking. My weaknesses are time management, being organized, and prioritizing. It is required to have at least double the amount of time I am in class, so for this class I am required to have at least four hours of study time outside of class.
