Often, they promote fundraisers and school-wide events to raise money needed to make these specific changes. To participate in high school student government, a large amount of prior leadership experience and creativity is needed. Peer counselors have the role of leading and guiding small groups of younger individuals through their difficult time transitioning into high school. Through advisory and prior experience of high school life, incoming freshmen are given an abundance of advice and aid. Peer counselors are not required to, but should have a great sense of the meaning of leadership.

Some people claim that having mandatory volunteering in the school program is extracurricular and affects students’ activity in the class. However, I strongly believe that it would be beneficial for their future states in a number of ways. First reason that I believe mandatory volunteering is beneficial is that it involves a great number of people from young age to serve in community. Productivity of youth is more effective than adults, and also students will convey their experiences into adulthood. For example, Canada is one of the first countries to create mandatory community service program in 1999.
For instance, teenagers are at the in between stage of where they are trying to grow up and leave their childhood behind. Although they are still living at home under their parents rules, they need all the preparation they could get since they will be leaving their homes soon. In the article, Tethered teens: Becoming too dependent on parents,” Gregory Ramey states “Teens become used to contacting their parents to deal with a myriad of minor issues.” In other words, this transition is more difficult than it has to be when teenagers are clinged onto their parents. As teenagers get older they must learn to be independent so they won't be caught by surprise when they face the reality of things not always being done for them. Independence can only aid to productivity in the long run.
She didn’t give up even with all the things going on around her, Kailyn goes to say “Between teen motherhood, financial hurdles in the beginning, then moving to a new state, marriage, babies and divorce… and then of course just wanting to give up, I (barely) held on,” she wrote of her struggle to get her degree (Quinn). They are able to accomplish this things in spite of being a full time mom and having other problems they have to face. This is another way that disproves Henson’s view that the show has an negative impact on teens. Despite what people may think about “Teen Mom,” the show is really helpful to young teens because it shows the struggles and the difficulties that teen moms face daily. The reason why this is important to know is so parents don’t look at the TV show as a bad influence to young teens who may be watching.
Compared to other schools, tests and homework are basically nonexistent. Students' intelligence aren't measured at all for the first sixed years, so they can focus more on learning, collaboration, and personal needs rather than competing with other students for an "A". The difference between the "weakest" and "strongest" is the smallest in the world. About two thirds of students attend college, and that is the highest rate in all of Europe. They also have longer breaks compared with other schools, and teachers only spend four hours a day in the class room and two hours for extra help.
However, not every student who took the developmental courses gets success in their majors. One research shows that around 60 percent of community college students have to take developmental courses, but only one third of the student completed their major class in six years (Bailey, Jeong, & Cho, 2010). Therefore, some students think developmental education is useless and a wasting of their time. There are three different reasons why developmental courses are not targeted, efficient and have short-term effects. First of all, developmental education is not targeted.
A few fundraising events in which our council has carried out include a Tie-Dye booth, countless bake sales, raffles, and the Color Fest. In addition to Student Council, I am responsible and dependable as a student and fellow peer. However, the reason why I feel I need to improve my leadership is because I need to demonstrate more leadership within the classroom. I will do this by speaking up more, offering opinions, giving feedback to the teachers on common issues all the students are facing, and so
There is always a group of students after graduation or even before graduation who cannot see their selves continuing school for another four years. Especially when they have alternative options some students in high school would spend most of their day at high school and after lunch, they spend their day at a trade school. During their time at a trade school, they get a further learning on skills that high schools do not provide. Skills in plumbing, automotive, cosmetology, fashion design, heating and cooling, and many more different jobs. Most parents stress that important it's getting into college after high school because degrees look good on your résumé, and it can get you further in your career.
The main reason for imposing curfews is because a teenager can not establish reasonable curfews unlike responsible parents. Curfews are not insulting teenager’s responsibility but instead, teaches them time management and responsibility. Teenagers are not adults yet and it is a parent’s duty to manage their time for them until they become more reasonable and more responsible. If teenagers were ready to tackle on the whole world and make all of their own rules, they shouldn’t live with their parents. Parents are there to help teenagers and enforcing curfews are one of the reasons.
I will help motivate my peers to take on more community and school service projects. I am not afraid to break out of my comfort zone to benefit those around me. The past two years I have worked to come out of my comfort zone and try new things. This lead me to many clubs and extracurricular activities that I know enjoy. For example, I am an active member of the FPC band.
During my years at Peoria Notre Dame HS, cheerleading has been a big part of my life, and something I hope to continue at the University of Dayton. I am an outgoing and social person and it’s easy for me to learn routines quickly. As captain for both the JV and varsity squads, I have put together multiple award winning routines, selecting the music, choreographing and teaching the routine to the squad. Besides the actual cheer routines, I have used my communication skills to keep squad members and their parents informed. I try to set a good example with my own behavior, I love helping to create enthusiasm for cheerleading in young kids, and I have learned a lot from mediating issues within the team.

Despite the fact that countless studies have proven that students that receive eight to nine hours of sleep each night preform better in school, many schools still start school at the regular time. Diamond Bar high school is one of these schools that refuse to acknowledge these studies. Students these days have to balance schoolwork, athletics, club activities, and social lives. Getting the proper amount of sleep is the last thing on a young adults mind during their high school career. If so many studies have proven that when students get the right amount of sleep, then why does Diamond Bar high school, a school that prides itself on its high-test scores, not want to benefit their students even more by starting school later than the usual start time?
