Being a sophomore at Cypress High School has already taught me much. My first year there I didn't know anyone but I quickly made friends with the friendly students of Cypress High. The teachers at Cypress are super friendly, they create a learning environment an enjoyable place to be. In the beginning of sophomore year AP teachers expose you experience a college environment which helps prepare us to be ready in the future.Being an athlete at Cypress High has taught me many things, some of them being sportsmanship, leadership skills, as well as teamwork. My overall review of Cypress High School is that it's an enjoyable and pleasant place to learn in.
The road to the historic desegregation of Little Rock Central High school began in the 1930’s when the NAACP tasked future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall with fighting segregation in schools. By 1950 he had helped to strike down segregation in universities in several states. In 1951, the NAACP aided parents of black children attending public schools in Topeka, Kansas in attempting to overturn the state’s segregation laws. After a three year court battle, the 1954 Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education Topeka culminated in the abolishment of school segregation laws in 21 states. (Seeds 1)

This social issue has been in the spotlight for quite some time now and is the leading cause for students to miss school, become less social, cause self harm and even in some cases death. Bullying and harassment are commonly seen for the most part amongst teenagers who face issues at school, not only does this happen here in the United States, but in schools universally. ¨17% of American students report being bullied 2 to 3 times a month or more within a school semester¨ (Valerie). Although this is mostly seen among teens it can also happen between children and even adults. Bullying can occur everyday throughout Madera High School and no one would be able to acknowledge or stand up for the victim. Vice Principals at MHS have said that more
Little Rock Central High School was one of many segregated schools in America, where only whites were able to attend. In 1957, nine African-American students enrolled for Little Rock Central High, and were expected to integrate the all-white school. Their enrolment was followed by an outburst and the “Little Rock Crisis”. The nine students, known as the “Little Rock Nine”, were refused from entering the school ground by Orval Faubus. This was undeterred from the rule put in place three years earlier, where the U.S Supreme Court stated that “school segregation was unconstitutional.” Arkansas Governor refused to allow the pupils to desegregate Central High, even dispatching the Arkansas National Guard to keep the students from entering the school.
Do you remember the pep-rallies from sixth grade? Remember how we sixth graders could not wait until seventh grade to sit on the bleachers instead of the gym floor? Back in 2013, Larkspur Middle School got rid of pep-rallies since it was a safety hazard to have too many people in the gym at the same time. Instead, they replaced pep-rallies with spirit parades, so teams parade around the school for about fifteen minutes and basically back up the whole school day. I think the best way to bring school spirit back at Larkspur is to get rid of spirit parades, bring pep-rallies back, and hold them outside.
Madera High school in its past years have dealt with many cases of bullying and harassment among the students on the campus. A hand full of students from Madera High stated that people being harassed and picked on was something that was seen often on social media and up in personal. This became a major problem when social media such as Myspace were first made. This was the beginning of online harassment and bullying. Cyber bullying isn’t something that other people should just look past and ignore because people take their lives from it. People don’t notice what’s going on in the life of a victim that is bullied. Nowadays mostly all of Madera high school students have social media and physical bullying is more rare to see because most of the
When I attended Oroville High School for my freshman year, there were countless numbers of couples that hungout together, including myself and my ex-boyfriend. There was so much pressure for all of the couples to do things and have sex, especially for our friends that were together, mainly because they were freshman and the peer pressure from all of the upper class men highly effected them. A couple that we hungout with at Oroville High always talked to us about them feeling like they need to and about how they don't know if it's a good idea or not. We always told them to follow their gut and their hearts, do what they feel is right. The main problem was that all of the higher classes always said, "wow dude, you're lame, you're not cool" only
My school work and education are taken seriously. I know that my education will certainly affect my future.
School is the place where students go to receive education. Currently, I am a junior at Diamond Bar High School. Although some might think that DBHS is a school without flaws, there are issues with the teachers here. As illustrated through their lack of coordination with each other, lack of familiarizing student with the AP tests, and lack if personal connection with the students. There are certainly changes that need to be made. It is vital that the flaws of DBHS be corrected.
I want to attend Archbishop Mitty High School because I believe that I can have an excellent education while having fun at the same time. When I went to the Open House at Archbishop Mitty High School, I immediately knew that this was the school for me. At Archbishop Mitty High School, I saw that they have Debate, Student Council, and Volleyball. I am especially passionate about Debate. I also love volleyball because I know can stay active while having fun at the same time. Since Mitty is a catholic school, I can have a spiritual growth along with a good academic education. When I was shadowing at Mitty, the people were very polite and welcoming which I really liked. My ambassador was very nice and friendly with me. The day I was shadowing
My freshman year at Ceiba College Prep was an adventure, I was able to truly find myself and learn who I was, along with my friends. My school is strict, and students often felt isolated in such a small school. In an attempt to help the school feel more traditional, administration allowed an trial run for open campus. Certain classes would be allowed to leave during lunch, and come back before classes resumed. The detail, however, was that only specific classes were allowed to go. In this misunderstanding, my friends and I left campus when we were not part of the permitted class. When we arrived back to campus, teachers were doing a roundup of students, to make sure no one unapproved had left. My friends and I were told we had left without
It just so happens that the lack of certain classes affect how "boring" or "entertaining" school is. Such classes are that of art, which can be essential to some teenage growth. My school is no exception, Odenville Middle School needs an art class.
