Now don’t get me wrong, I did have a good high school experience; however this isn’t about the good times I had. I want to tell you a story about something else. A real life lesson that I learned in school, something truly beneficial to my future. My senior year of high school taught me many things, however nothing compared to what I learned when I hit rock bottom that year. My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before.
Such students plays importance on relationship with their co-workers, being able to ____ is of more value. The reason for this is their lack of self esteem towards academic pursuits. The story is set on Ryuuzan High school, a school with a Heiken Hensachi score of 37, it’s way below the ranking.

Some say high school is the best four years of people’s lives. I hope this is a lie. High School wasn’t bad for me, actually it was quite good, but I have high hopes for college. In high school you are required to take a bunch of classes that not everybody is interested in and a lot of students have nothing to lose if they slack off in class. In college you have more freedom when choosing classes, so you can learn more about things that interest you.
My High school is the best school for me. In saying this I mean that my high school might not be the most challenging but it has helped me out in a lot of ways. With that in mind I have to admit that San Jacinto Christen Academy has not prepared me for college as I believe it should have. It has how ever made me a better person and who I am today. I am not prepared for the work that I am going to get when I attend college but I am prepared in a different way one that most people ever even think about.
Studies have shown that the grades have hurt these overall objectives. This means with grades students are not learning it in the long term and getting nothing out of the time spent in the classroom. If we modeled the education systems of successful countries such as Singapore, who has the highest PISA scores, and Finland who ranked first in the WEF report, we could easily relieve the pressure and lack of desire to learn. Rather than shoving standardized tests down students throats, making them think the only way they can succeed in life is with an A, overloading them with six classes A DAY with only an hour of break time, and placing them in overcrowded classrooms, we need to be treating our students with extreme care, as if our lives depend on it, because they do ! Children are the future of this nation, and if we do not provide them with a quality, encouraging education that feeds the hunger to learn rather than just make them think all school is about is passing tests and getting A’s, we’re going to be in serious trouble in the
During the time the students were in kindergarten and high school, not all of them were smart, thus making the competition less intense. The brilliant students did not need to study hard as they will still get the first place as they are against the average students. But, in college or university, they have to maintain their ego throughout the whole semesters as they are against each other, thus forcing them to struggle very hard specifically in academic and sports so that their ego will not be stained by the others. Ego are meant to be built and protected, thus anything must be done in order to keep the ego stands proudly. Directly speaking, competitions among them are also one of the main causes why excellent students struggled academically in
The project included 10,000 students from Tennessee State. The students were assigned to small size classes of 13 to 17 students and regular classes of 22 to 26 students with and without assistant teacher in regular sized classes for every teacher. The findings of this project have shown that students in reduced size classes had higher academic achievements and the more time students spent in reduced size class even more long lasting their achievements were. However, Hanushek have criticized the project STAR and has mentioned that the student achievements after the returning of students to the normal size classes is not assured. He agrees that small class size may have an impact on students' achievements, but this is not the
Colleges are considered viable establishments for preparing students for jobs after their education career ends. However, they are not doing an optimal job in ensuring that students are obtaining the best education they can get. There is no pull or motivation factor to capture students’ attention within a large class. The most pivotal part of college is implementing what was learned throughout its duration, and applying it to a future career. Students are paying tens of thousands of dollars to attend college, and lowering the class sizes will help students receive the best education that they are paying for.
12)." When technology is used the right way it is said that just one year with a gifted teacher in middle school a female student is far less likely to end up pregnant instead the student will go to college and make a pretty good salary and live in a decent neighborhood and save up for their retirement. Researchers still have no proof that the new skills that students learn can be used to help them in the future (Pinker par. 13). There are four major conflicts with having technology in education.
Senior year is theoretically the greatest years of one’s life, whether in high school or college. Seniors in high school begin preparation to attend numerous events such as; senior prom, home coming, applying for college, and graduation. Seniors in college and graduate schools begin to envision life without; homework, late nights cramming for tests, applying for jobs, applying for higher education, not to mention trips to celebrate graduation. However, high school teachers and college professors have a different perspective believing senior year can be terribly difficult for a few students. Meaning, students’ are being baited by the light at the end of the tunnel, turning their focus away from studying and maintaining a higher GPA to planning for their futures and thinking they can just breeze through the remaining weeks or semester of school.
