At the end of the journey, I had gained a lot from these 4 years, but it also prepared me for my next journey, my journey through university. In conclusion, both the archetypes of the student and the journey have a big role in my life. Understanding both archetypes helped me through my years at high school and will hopefully help me in the future years to
In my school and community, we have found that there is a large setback with the incoming freshmen and their ability to adapt to the new atmosphere and changes of high school. They either have social problems, home life problems, or high school is just a huge change for them. Six years ago, my school created a program hoping to solve that problem, the mentor/leadership program, which is open to juniors and seniors. I applied, and was accepted into this program my junior year. In the mentor program you meet with a freshmen every week and discuss some of the challenges they are facing while adjusting to high school.
Would it be just as miserable as my past high school experience? But little did I know that coming to Prairie Ridge would turn my life around completely. The upward trend in my high school career has been influenced by many factors. But one of the aspects that has been the most impacting on my life at Prairie Ridge are the various people that I have met. From my teachers to my classmates, the numerous people at this school are a mix of the most wonderful, kind, and encouraging people that I have ever encountered.
In highschool I was highly committed to a program called "Breakthrough" for my last three years in high school. Breakthrough helps first generation students go to college, starting to work with them in middle school. It's an amazing organization and helps the kids every step of the way, whether it be tutoring for a hard math exam in 8th grade or application help when applying to college in 12th grade. My role was to be a mentor leader during Saturday sessions. From 8am to 4pm, we would lead 12 - 15 students through activities to learn about college, or just work on important skills such as writing, reading and research.
As I move forward with my first semester of college, I am bringing pieces of all of these people with me.. So, I’m going to continue on in college knowing I have so many people behind me. I will also always remember that the most important thing they could have taught me was to simply be
Through out my high school career leadership has been a big part of my life. Most of my experience has come from Link Crew, a leadership program at my school that chooses upperclassmen to be a mentor to incoming freshman, providing them with support, and guidance during their transition into high school. This program also focuses on giving back to the community, and our school. My junior year
Throughout my whole experience at Centennial, I have always wanted to join the National Junior Honor’s Society, so I feel very honored to have this opportunity to apply. Last semester, I was part of our school’s Student Council. Being in that group allowed me to see how important leadership is in our daily lives, in and outside of school. I also learned a whole lot about service, considering we had to complete one hour every week. All of these things are important, but the thing that I thought spoke to me personally was this year’s theme.
To me it 's a much bigger picture. I believe it 's the years of bonding and trust I have created with all the teamates around me. To excel throughout the years, my team mates and I had to perform on the same level for us to suceed as a whole. I will always have those friends because we actually became a family as well
How I Graduated High School Have you ever procrastinated for so long that it finally caught up to you? Well that was the story of my life in my senior year of high school. To me, high school wasn’t about learning and doing school work, it was more about hanging out with friends and living a life of leisure and free time. Needless to say, by the end of my sophomore year, everything changed and I learned things the hard way. Getting your responsibilities out of the way, and taken care of is always better done soon rather than later.
High School, currently I am a senior at Kealakehe High School and have been going to this school for the past 4 years of my high school education , honestly I like to think of myself as a hardworking lain back kind of person, when I am hardworking when I need to and chill and relaxed when I have no other things I have to do, Though my experience in high school I have learned stuff the lame and hard way by my laid back attitude in my first 2 years and have been using more of my hardworking side to catch up on credits in my last 2 years of high school. One of my strengths as of now is striving and persisting by hard work and actually taking time out of my free time to actually do my school work and study, though I may not do every single piece of work given to me, well that wasn't always my strengths in high school, cause I personally had
I am extremely honored to be eligible for this opportunity to apply for the National Honor Society. Becoming a member of the National Honor Society has been a goal I set for myself since I was a student in middle school. I have been greatly looking forward to this moment for a very long time. Overall, I have worked incredibly hard these last two years to display a positive character and obtain qualities such as leadership, responsibility, and scholarship. I strongly believe I will be a productive and reliable member of the National Honor Society at Harvard H. Ellis Technical High School.
I want to play for Mitty and be part of the Mitty heritage of camaraderie and success. I know several people that have graduated from Mitty and they all have nothing but great experiences from their high school years. Those people were confident and grounded. When I went to shadow at Mitty on December 2nd, the people there were so nice and friendly, which made me feel like I was a part of
Those three were the individual ones that I seemed to identify the most with but there are common factors that are the same in each and every one of these students. Most of them were motivated by their parents or had some external force holding them accountable. They all had outlets such as sports or even just taking walks to keep them grounded. Mine was reading, I knew when I was younger that reading a book when I was going through something always help, it seemed like I was in a new world. Finally, even though they were all first generation students they still knew from the very beginning that they would graduate college.
I consider high school to be one of the most important parts in a child’s life. From the ages of fourteen to eighteen, anything can happen in one’s life. High school is a place where many major changes can occur in a young adult. It is a place where one goes from being just a kid, to turning into a young adult that is ready to venture out into the real world. It is a place where a person can decide where they best fit in and what they enjoy the most.
Have you ever had to move away from something and you thought it was going to be the end of your life? I used to live in Colorado. For almost nine years I enjoyed growing up in Greeley CO. I met a lot of people, and finish school all the way up to half of my sophomore year. I was really excited to start my second year of high school.
