My High School Experience
When people start high school they’re usually so excited. They can’t wait to experience everything that comes with being in high school, I mean who wouldn’t? Everyone says that high school is the best four years of your life. Now that I’m months away from graduating, I can’t say they were my best years but I can say they were my most educational years, of course I wouldn’t say that they weren’t fun because they were. When I say educational, I mean I’ve learned so much about myself and so much about life. I learned what the words family, love, betrayal, law and life meant. All these events changed me, and I’m glad they happened because I wouldn’t have learned all these lessons. My personality hasn’t changed; I’m still a carefree girl, just with a little more wisdom and a lot more strength.
I started off school with a horrible attitude because my parents sent me to a different school. They sent me to a school where I knew about two people, I was so angry at my parents that I decided to rebel until they would transfer me to Eastlake. When I went back to Eastlake everything was good again, I made new friends and I even had a boyfriend. My priorities were never really about school or getting good grades, it was always about my friends and my boyfriend. I would ditch on a daily basis just to spend more time with them even if we didn’t really do anything exciting, just as long as I didn’t have to be bored in a classroom. My ditching got so bad it got to the point where my teachers didn’t even know my name, or they thought I transferred out of their class. As a result to all this ditching, I had horrible grades and I was way behind on my credits. I regret ditching because I ruined my chances of going to a university; instead I’m going to a community college. I realize now that I ditched for no reason at all, it was a waste of my time. I look back and think that ditching is just so ridiculous, there really is no point to it unless you want to ruin your future....
High School Experiences
High school experiences are helpful for the deveoplemnt from child to a young adult. Students grow together and experience the good the bad and learn from one another. Some make new friends, some loose friends and others dont find any. High school is all about change and growth. Others worry about what they wear, who the hang with, and do only whats cool. And others grow up in a different enviroment. I belive those who don’t know themselves reflect off the others who have already found themselves.
I’m not the typicaly student who attends school everday of every week of every school year. My situation is different from others. Majority of teachers, guidence counslers, and principals all had some negative say in the way my life is lived and approached. Many critise my family and my parents on how they’ve raised my two oldest brothers and I. Negative comments lead my mother to even push my brothers and I even harder and more aggresivly, so that one day someone will realize what my family does is not wrong. Letting my brothers and I miss school consistainly so we can chase our dreams and grow up in a different enviroment has taught us more than living in a small town with the same people ever will.
My brothers and I race motocross. A sport that is so aggresive and so compeative its such an adrealine rush. We get on the gate, our hearts pounding. Everything more. Nothing less. Lining up with 42 kids just as fast if not faster all wanting the same thing. The win, the championship, the glory. Motocross isn’t just about twisting a throttle, turning corners and jumping over enormous mounds of dirt. We train and ride everyday, race in different states and countries 43 weekends out of every year, and sacrifice so many things. My family has lost two great friends from racing. But we all take that risk and just keep moving on. Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or even a year but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. My...
High School Experience
The time when I was a high school student is the most exciting and important period in my life because I get a lot of experiences of basic knowledge, requirement for university enrollment and human life. The high school program was created for students with an interest in Science and Social studies. I was very good at Mathematics and Social science because I’m interested in Business and Management. That’s why I prepared to become a good manager and businessman. In my opinion, business consists of logical mathematics and social communication. Also a good mark in test of mathematics and social science is the requirement for entry into university. There is a lot of evidence to show my effort for mathematic and social science. For example, I won a gold medal in Social science study Olympiad of Ulaanbaatar city, Bayangol district and took 8th place in a Social science Olympiad of Mongolia.
Furthermore, I participated in a mathematics Olympiad several times. However, I won one silver medal of Mathematical Olympiad of Ulaanbaatar city. These Olympiads and preparation for Olympiads was an effective tool for university entrance examination. Studies besides mathematics and social science studies expanded my view of the world. For instance, I realized that physics, chemistry and biology are related to all natural phenomenons. Now I can give a simple explanation of science for “why a rainbow exists”, “what is electricity” whatever. It’s enough for me. Most people don’t know about people collect experience of life in high school years. During my high school years, I learned to love people, participate in social life and make decisions. Of course that love is not the love of a couple, it is the love of your family, your classmates and furthermore all people of the world. In other words, I learned to help people and respect them. It’s just one part of social life. Also to learn how to make decisions by your own is very important because after graduation from high school,...
College Vs. High School
High School vs. College
After going to high school for four years, college is definitely a step up. There are similarities, but at the same time more differences. There is still some required classes and homework, but they are different at the same time. Classes in college are bigger as well as the campus, class times vary a lot more, homework takes more time, and the teacher/student communication is a 180 degree change from high school.
In high school, classes are usually no larger than 25 students. In many classes, it could be even less than that. In college all classes are larger than 35 students, yet most are significantly larger. In general education lecture classes, such as Psychology and management, class sizes can get up to 400 students. Students go into their classes, find a seat in the huge lecture hall, and fade into another face among the silent crowd.
With so many students and so many faces in each class, college professors don't personally get to know their students. A professor wouldn't even notice if a student didn't attend class one day, or if that person was taking that class at all. In big classes, the professor won't even know a students' name by the last day of class. In high school, teachers get to know their students on a first and last name basis within at least the first couple of weeks. High School teachers know each students personality, study habits, and grades by the end of each year. In college, a student would be lucky if his/her professor recognized their face.
Lecture, lecture, lecture, take notes, read, and take the test. That pretty much sums up an average college course. You come into the class, find a seat, get out your notebook for notes and listen until the end of class. There are no second chances or re-takes on an exam, like in high school. It is almost impossible to talk professors into giving extra credit for outstanding participation, because chances are they won't remember it. Half credit for the...
