I knew that I needed to not just put in the same effort as other kids my age but far more. I needed to show others that yes, I am not from this country, but I am capable of doing as good and if not better. Looking back, I can proudly say that my all my hard work ever since has paid off. Today, I am a thriving early college student. At the age of fourteen, I was accepted into an Early College High School that has allowed me to take dual credit courses since my freshman year of high school.
Almost forgot the name of my high school is Adrian Wilcox High, home of the thunder if I remember correctly or lightning one of the two but I digress. After the first period of class, which nothing much really happened but explaining school rules and such. I began to realize that high school feels the same as middle school expect there were four times the students than there is in eighth grade; walking down the halls I can feel eyes of the higher grades scoping not only myself but a majority of the other freshmen knowing we are struggling to find our scheduled classes. Lunch finally comes around I start opening up to other students to make and try to make some friends, I remember lunch and after were my favorite times back then my classes were easy and so chill

One of those famous novels is Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The protagonist in this story is a high school freshman named Charlie. Charlie expresses himself and tells his through a series of letters. Another term for “coming of age” is the term bildungsroman.

Michelle and I gotten ready and left the house at 7:30 to walk to campus. As always, the walk took thirty minutes and we arrived at school at 8am just as planned.

Now think about it most students live out of town, so they have to drive home but that might take them another two hours but that depends on how far you live so than you will not get out till nine or ten. You also have homework that probably was assigned to you and usually most students can spend one to two hours on it, so truly you will not go to bed till eleven or twelve. You see we will get out to late and we
When I started my first year in high school at Old Scona Academic, my transition from junior high wasn’t the smoothest. I didn’t know what courses to take nor how to handle the stress. It was in these times that my school’s mentorship program proved invaluable. Returning students had the option of becoming a mentor for new students and my grade 11 mentor cleared up all my worries the second after I had them. So I took inspiration from all the help I was given and am now a mentor for a new grade 10.

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.

Her chores were to pick and chop cotton, fruits and vegetables. Back then potatoes were six cents a bag, therefore she tried to gather as many bags as possible.

On August 30th from 5:00pm to 7:00 pm, I attended the Black Student Association annual cookout for new members. I expected for there just to be a few people, like maybe twenty students, since blacks only make up 2-3% of the student population.

I assumed there would be many administration overseeing us.
