There is a big difference between high school and college from having bells to a no dress policy. For high school students, they are obligated to go, and if they don’t attend then the government comes into play. As for college, it 's a choice to go back to school. Students in college have variety of classes to choose from and freedom,etc. This could be freedom from parents or just doing whatever you want without parents barking at you, because you are now an adult. Even though I have been in college for only a semester, I would say that I enjoy college more than high school due to personal reason,and to pros and cons, of the different schools.
In high school there are many drawbacks compared to college. However, there are some advantages. For example, homework was something that could be done the night before, or even the class before it was due. The “take home” work that was given was very simple and students did not need much time to complete it. Most of the time, homework was the work that the student was not able to finish in class. Another advantage in high school, is always being reminded of what you need to complete. The teachers are always there to let you know that something is going to be due soon. Having the same set schedule can be fun, because everybody switches classes and has lunch at the same, so you are always able to see and communicate with your friends. Also, high school classes, books, and lunch are all free or have a very small cost.
As we go on in life we face many challenges and new situations that we deal with. A new situation that most people deal with is college and all the changes that come along with it. What many people don't realize is that high school, in many ways, is similar and differrent from college. Not only are people changing but the surroundings and work change as well. There are some things that seem to never change such as some work and people.
In the American schooling system, children begin primary school around the age of six, this is called elementary school and most students stay there for five to six years before they go on to secondary school which involves middle school and high school. After graduating high school some students may go on to “higher education” known as college, but any schooling done after high school is no longer mandatory.
High school is the four years people have to complete after finishing elementary school. After having graduate from high school people have the decisions to either attend a university, go to a community college, or end there educational career there. Going to a community college won’t be the same experience most are used to when they had attended high school. Even though community college and high school may seem alike they are actually different because of the costs, expectations, and behavior.
Classes are the second main reason high school differs from college. Classes in high school generally consist of no more that 25 students. Counselors usually arrange your schedule the way they think is best for you. You are not responsible for knowing what it takes to graduate. Usually the school year is 26 weeks long; classes may have to be taken the whole year in order to get credit for them. You are graded on most assignments done in class. In college some classes may have from 75-100 students. It is your responsibility to enroll in the classes that are required for your major, plus a week for final exams. The year is divided into two 14 week semesters; most classes need to be taken the complete semester in order to get credit. College professors tend to grade students on tests and major papers.
People can really see the distinctive differences these two phase in life; however, there are also some similarities you will carry on during your transition into college lives. Friends from your high school will always be there for you especially when you keep a constant connection between them. Studying habits such as cramming for test or homework, creating during a test or copying another student’s homework, breaking the rules and disciplinary sanctions are still evident in both high school and college.
High School? Worst 4 years of your life with no freedom at all. College? Worst years of your life, but with little more freedom. Aside from the High School and College similarities, they both portray many striking differences that set them apart from one another. From the dress codes that everyone detests and the home homework every student tried to cram before class starts all the way to even the sweet and sour pretzels in the vending machines.
Graduating from high school is what every student is looking forward to. However, going to college is a big accomplishment for all students. The first day of freshman high school and college feels the same, the excitement and pressured. As many students experienced, both high school and college could be compared their similarities. First, both students in college and high school are expected to behave in well mannered, attend to every class on time, and respect the teachers or professors. Second, being prepared in class is needed for the success whether the students are in high school or college. Third, high school and college allow the students to figure out and pursue their career. In contrary, high school and college have a lot of differences to each other. Unlike high school, students in college can choose a college they would prefer, they can manage their own time, and students be able to learn how to balance their responsibilities and priorities.
High School is said to be the easiest time of a young adult’s life. Our teachers help us and remind us to turn in our work. We don’t even have to study much for our test. We don’t have to pay taxes either. But in college, you have to pay for everything, including taxes and room and board. In high school we just kind of coast through and take what our parents do for us for granted. I will discuss my first prom in sophomore year and building prom as a junior.
They told me that they thought college was not really any different than high school. Not only were their classes based on most of the same materials, but also the people and surrounding reminded them of high school. They hung out with the same people and did the same things on weekends.
High school and college tow things contrasting, yet similar in many ways. In high school they are very strict about dress codes. Prohibited wearing certain clothing for girls such as spaghetti strings or short dresses, having anything graphic, political affiliation, or anything that sends a message of rebellion. Many high schools also don’t teach every little things that students need to know before entering college. If a public school is not well funded, then the students are the ones that suffer the consequences not very well prepared so when they actually go to college they struggle. Attendance is not as crucial. A person could probably miss a whole week and not have one single page of homework. It is way easier to get away with things because
In middle school your classes are very demanding, you have to go to them. In high school, you can get out of school at any time, the teachers are layed back. As you get older your classes get harder. All of the classes you had in middle school are totally different, and you will most likely not understand some of the things you are being taught. When you are in middle school you have a lot of homework, but in high school you will have way more. Also in high school you will have to carry a lot of books.
Why is high school so different then collage? Here are a few comparison that I have experience during my changeover into the collage lifestyle: I used to think that collage is so much like high school. First thing I notice is the workloads. I used to think that teacher will always be after you even if you’re in collage. I used to think that you can turn in the late work for full credit and retake the test as much as you want. This first week of collage makes me realize that collage is nothing alike high school. There won’t be anyone after you, when you have low grades. There will be so many responsibilities. Teacher will start treating you like an adult. In high school, I was forced to learn all the subjects but in collage, I get to learn
The first concept that makes high school and college different is in regards to workload, both out of class and in class. At Pine Island High School, the majority of my classes were fairly simple regarding the amount of homework I was given and the clarity of the instructions. Each assignment that was assigned gave step by step directions regarding the task at hand .The teachers taught us students the information in a manner that made it very easily understood. The teachers took advantage of Microsoft PowerPoint and Word for our convenience of viewing the material in a fast and efficient manner that helped us students learn in a clear and advanced fashion. If I ever needed clarification regarding class work, I could always rely on my teachers
