Raising the bar for high school will benefit the students in later on in life. I do agree that they should be raise to help the student in education. For their own good in life.
. After two years, I was able to find my way and becoming an honor high school student; I was able to qualify honor classes and A.P classes. Due to my efforts, I also got the high school business award for 2008. I persuaded for a better education by challenging myself with heavier work and difficult tasks. I was able to pass the state exams and graduate from high school with a 3.6 GPA.
Happy New Year! How are you? I just wanted to update you. I applied for jobs through Americorps and landing one in Pittsburgh with a Non-profit called Higher Achievement. We are an affiliate to a national program. Higher Achievement aims to help middle school scholars from the Hill District and Homewood areas, prepare for High School and for placement in advanced programs and or top tier schools. I was hired to help recruit mentors for the scholars and create programming for alumni of Higher Achievement. I told my supervisors about my interest in communications and they offered me the opportunity to be affiliate Brand Manager and of course I took it! I'm happy to be getting my foot in the door. I hope you're doing well and looking forward to
A survey from Citigroup finds that almost eighty percent of high school students take part in a part time job. Students do not have careers in their jobs through high school, but jobs that can keep money in their pockets. The decision is left up to the students if he/she wants to work and attend school simultaneously; the decision should not be left up to the parents/guardians. Although the decision should not be left up to the parents/guardians, getting a job should be encouraged to high school students. Having a job introduces students to the real world and transforms students into responsible young adults. Nothing can teach young adults responsibility and management like the experience of having a job throughout high school. Since I am
Throughout my high school career, I have learned that being successful in school can lead you to many different opportunities. One opportunity that I was given was that I joined my high school's Beta Club Chapter. It was an honor to be invited to join because how involved the Beta Club is with the my school, community, and state. This past year, I was selected to represent my school as I ran a campaign to become the North Carolina Beta Secretary. Although I was nervous, I opened my mouth, and the words just began to come out. My fears went away, and I addressed my peers on the topics of educational improvements and leadership opportunities, so all students can succeed. To my surprise and delight, the two thousand North Carolina Betas in
To be successful there must be drastic changes into your typical life style. Being successful in high school comes with little patience as well as motivation studies show that 49% of freshman students in college work harder that they thought they would. In the media success is thought of wealthy, power, and position this is how the Americans see it as. In order to be successful in school there is discipline, academy's that will show that being wealthy isn't always a way to be successful, there will be different perspectives on going to college, struggle and confidence.
All throughout school, students are ask what we want to be when we grow up. Many of us know or have a pretty good idea, but others have no clue what they want to pursue as a career in life, whether it be furthering their education at a university or attending a technical school. There are other students that plan to start work right out of high school. Either way we all have a plan, and the purpose of this paper is to inform you of mine. I personally struggle in making big decisions like deciding what to do with my life, but then I realized I have been asking myself the wrong questions. Instead of asking what I want to be when I grow up, I asked myself what do I want out of life? what are some of my goals that I wish to achieve? This led
After examining, history, income, and schooling, it is clear that to strive to be a lawyer would be an excellent goal after high school. Lawyers have always been very important throughout history, have very high income, and require a lot of schooling. Becoming a lawyer would be a great career to get into.
In my past, I've done a lot of mistakes, but this year is my year because i'm working on doing extra, making my work ethic better, And having a passion for 8th grade.
Well for starters, my body is different than it was last year. My legs are longer, not to brag, but they are also stronger. I can’t really say some stuff in the essay so I’ll go with my upper body, its bigger it has hair and it’s stronger. My arms are the same as my legs, they are also strong and long. My face grows pimples and well that is all my face does, but that is just for starters. What I have noticed that changed is I have more discipline, I could thank that to my new bravery that allowed me to join football oh and my coaches. Now, instead of saying yes I say yes ma'am, and yes sir. I have also noticed that I understand more I could understand when my parents talk sarcastically. And now I notice that I was a childish kid in front of girls, and changed to be a gentleman.my academics have improved to I could read faster and longer without getting bored. I have advanced placement and I do my homework that is something that really changed when I entered high school, I don’t know how but it did. Those are the good things the bad thing are my parents and my coaches expect more from me. My parents want me to clean the house, my room, cut the lawn (front and back), and to clean the garage . To add to that my coach’s think all of my time is free and make super long practices, other than that that is what changed this high school
For me, thinking about high school is not that scary. I'm actually really excited for my future in high school as I didn’t have a good experience in grade 8. By the end of high school, my goal is to get at least 75% and over in all my subjects. I want to leave high school knowing that I improved more and more each year. Another goal of mine is that by the end of high school I wish to have a proper understanding of wht I want to do in my future. Its important for me to be happy with what I choose to do in my future because if you make a decision with thinking it fully through and not being committed with what you choose, it can ruin your future. My last goal is to leave high school being proud of everything ive done. That’s really important
Completing high school would have to be my greatest achievement. At 17 I moved out of my mother’s house and lived on my own. I never finished my online school because I was too busy working and trying to support myself. Then at 19 I moved back to my dad’s and finally completed the last year I needed. There's not much to do without having your GED or diploma, so having that behind me is an achievement. It was a great time in my life. I couldn’t be happier to have completed that goal.
Through out high school I have worked hard to accomplish my goals of keeping my GPA high and doing my best in every class. I have always put my academics before anything else, which can be challenging at times but in the end, worth it. I have been involved in sports, church, mission trips, and school clubs during my entire high school years and it has benefited me greatly. It has taught me to juggle school while being active in my community and learning life skills. My academic performance has improved by being involved because it has taught me to organize my time, stay motivated to complete tasks, and plan well. Being able to multitask is a great skill to have during college because life becomes very busy. I feel well prepared to pursue my
I was dodging students like I was a car and they were the deer that had just been caught in headlights. Running fast, as if my name had all of the sudden been changed to none other than Usain Bolt. Breathing so heavily you would’ve thought I was being chased after by a crowd of angry, smelly, ginormous teenage bullies, but oh wait, I was.
