I remember the beginning of sixth grade, just like it was yesterday. Walking through the doors I had my backpack and lunchbox in hand excited to pass all classes with no problem.Unfortanately that thought was just a thought. Over the course of the year I failed tremendously by receiving my very first unsatisfactory grade. Before I have never received anything lower than a “B”, so to see a “C” it was heartbreaking for me. I know most students would love to see a “C” on their report card, satisfied with the feeling of not failing. Every report card I kept getting that same feeling of disappointment of seeing that “C” on my report card.
I am every pleased with my grades throughout my high school years. I feel very proud of myself, I did what I could possibly do to keep my grades up. Until this day I learn and also explore new things. Doing my homework everyday and turning in my assignments on time has assisted me a lot in multiple ways. Thanks to my mother for always pushing me to be responsible of my priorities. Working hard and doing my assignments will prepare me into the real world.
My grades have always been a high priority for me, along with my friends, family, and personal health, all of which are important for my future as a productive citizen. Throughout my schooling I have never felt the animosity towards education which sadly many of my peers hold, in fack I have even come to enjoy the challenges that school can present. I think mainly because much of the skills needed to do well in school came fairly naturally to me. Due to my adeptness in school I have felt that I should help those around me which are struggling in school and since I began helping others in school, I have found that I can explain those subjects which came easily to me in a way that could be easily understood by those I
For the duration of my high school years I have had my fair share of bad grades, just as any student has. An “F” on a vocabulary test, “D” on a math quiz, or even getting a “C” on my midterm exams is all failures to me. I will be the first to admit that I have never been the top- ranked 4.0 student, but getting a
My Junior Year of high school just recently started. I have learned so many different things while attending high school, and still have over a year to learn even more. As Matthew Kelly said, “whether you are sixteen or sixty, the rest of your life is ahead of you. You cannot change one moment of your past, but you can change your whole future.” This means while I have done a lot in my past, I cannot change anything that has already happened, but I am able to change my future. One of the most important things that I am involved in right now is school. My first two years at CBHS were good, and I made decent grades. Some of the grades that I made I am not very happy with now but I cannot change that so I need to focus on my grades right now because those are the ones I can change.
Major changes in my life have affected my high school career, but a large impact came from the death of my father in eighth grade. Before his passing, I was an average A/B student in middle school and even elementary school, which quickly changed in 8th grade when my classes became too hard for me to handle. I decided the best thing for my mental health was to drop out of my higher level classes. This lead to being in standard classes throughout my first year of high school with minimal effort from my part. After constantly missing school, I failed my second quarter. Instead of bouncing back from this, it pushed me down, making me believe I would never be able to recover. Without any motivation, I ended my ninth grade year with a grade point average of 1.4.
My moms raised me with a strong set of morals, including “hard work pays off.” Sometimes this can be discouraging when you work hard, but it doesn’t pay off as you’d like it to. I’ve always gotten the grades I strive for without much struggle. However, once high school started, everything changed. I’d work for weeks on a scholarship essay, and I wouldn’t even place. I’d work for months to get something published and then read other people’s names in the congratulations announcement. I’d constantly wonder: Who’s at the top of the class? Who’s going to win the end of year awards? When you consistently get the grades that I do, people just expect those grades. No one congratulates you on your hard work anymore, and you don’t always get recognized. Despite the lack of recognition, I still take pride in my grades, and continue to work hard. Getting great grades is something I know I can do, even when it’s difficult to do. The difficulty makes it even more satisfying when I see the hard work pay off, and I get the grade I wanted. I’ve encountered
About four years ago, I was just starting my first year of high school. During my previous tenure in middle school, I was basically an average student with multiple C’s and barely passing classes. So when I entered high school, I was not that enthusiastic about it and I continued the trend of not really caring about my grades in the 9th grade. As I became more aware of the opportunities I could get by receiving good grades, I began to actually care more about school and tried to get good grades. I began to do something that I never did before,
I’m definitely not the best student in the world, but I sure am one of the hardest working students I know. It was very easy to find me because I was always either at work, school, home, taking care of my grandma, or babysitting. I definitely had my head screwed on tight. I do believe that because I was/am taking care of so many people and trying to help my parents out financially, my grades have slipped quicker than I anticipated. I took on two study halls my junior year, and am taking on two study halls my senior year also. This definitely dropped my grade point average but I don’t regret it. I spend my study halls tutoring the students at my school. I specifically tutor for the Writing center and when I’m not tutoring for that, I’m helping
I will give you the short version of my story. In high school I could care less about my grades. I just tried enough to pass to the next grade. I had a very low self-esteem and was an introvert. I did not have many friends and did not do well in sports. I always avoid things that I thought I could not accomplish.
I really try my hardest in school to get the knowledge that I need to prepare me for college and for my future life after college. There are times in school that I really don't like the teacher that I have and would think that they might give me a bad grade just because they don't like me. Then after a couple days when I am on top of my class my attitude towards the teacher changes and so does my grade but don't worry it changes in a good way. There were times where my grade went down quite a bit because i got sick really bad. Even though I was sick I still tried to go to school so I don't get behind in my classes and miss school just from some dumb head ache or stomach pain. When I did get behind I always still caught back up with my work and
If I get bad grades, I may be remembered for the wrong legacy. However, if I continue to work hard I won't have to worry about bad grades because I won't have any. In order to be successful, I need to be more proactive when I am confused or unsure about something. It is important that I learn to feel more comfortable when asking questions. Participating in school is also extremely important because when you participate, information is clearer. It also lets the teacher know what you do and don’t understand. All in all, if I have a good work ethic, continue to be proactive, and participate frequently, I could reach my highest
Throughout my time in high school, I have maintained good grades. I maintained an average G.P.A. of 3.44 seven. My highest G.P.A. was at 4.0 and the lowest was 3.29. Concluding my grades are better this year due to me not taking a math class. Math has always been a struggle, but I tried my best to maintain a good grade; my junior year second semester I had obtained a D and that was certainly upsetting to me. I take my grades seriously and I strive to pass all my classes while sustaining a good G.P.A. The earnest work I put in during my four years demonstrate that it is not to just graduate but to graduate with good grades.
So let’s go back to freshman year where I was extremely lost I didn’t really know much about high school and really didn’t have anyone in my family to really help me either. Can you believe i didn’t know what the hell was a GPA and all through my freshman year and during that time my grades weren't very good and I didn’t really regard my grades as long as i was passing i thought i was doing good and that led me to finding about that grades affect my gpa and long story short after freshman year when i finally googled what the heck was a gpa all throughout sophomore, junior and senior year i fought tooth and nail to get the grades i’m getting today. So sophomore year comes and i’m pretty sure i was just as shy as was last year but i’ve made
Stereotypes, unfair justifications, what is college really about? Colleges now, base their students’ approval through a sheet of paper with grades! If you were to ask any college or any student, they would tell you that students are admitted into certain colleges based on their high school transcript. A transcript reflects a student’s grades, but it does not reflect his thoughts, ideas, or how intelligent he really is.
