A lot of people set a challenge to improve. By setting a challenge, individuals work hard, asking for help and advice from experienced advisors. Challenges motivate people and keep them working hard. The most significant challenge I have faced was getting a full scholarship into the private school, American Heritage High School in Plantation. This challenge was crucial for me because I came to United States in the middle of sixth grade. I went to Falcon Cove Middle School, and the school placed me in regular classes within the ESOL program. The ESOL program is a program designed for foreign students who do not speak English well. I got out of the program once I passed the placement test to the Cambridge program. In middle school, I won a variety
I believe Marist is a good match for me because it offers many it offers an excellent business program. The student activities that are offered are another reason why I’d like to go to Marist. I’m interested in the business club especially and by being involved in that club I believe it would lead me in successful path in my career. The trips the clubs takes to New York City interest me because by seeing the companies their I’d have more knowledge of what real life business in the career I choose looks like. The average classroom sizes are relatively small, which not many colleges or universities offer and I think that it very important in order to get the best education possible. The small size provides me with a better learning opportunity
My plans for next year while remaining at Corliss Early STEM High school is to pass all my classes and keep my GPA over a 3.8 average. I want to avoid all drama and stay away from students involved in too much mess. I was planning on transferring next school year because I don’t like the vibe that comes from the staff and some of the students. I changed my mind though, because people tend to work with other they dislike which shouldn’t stop you from completing a task. Things that led to me making this decision is my favorite teachers and friends. I have a personal bond and connection with some of the staff. My friends inspires me to strive and reach my goals.
When I was nine I told my mother I was going to be the first female Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, and since then my passion for law and politics has only grown. I enjoy being in thick of things and using my energy to move ideas

Vance Matthews: I am from Marina, California where I attended Monte Vista Christian High School. It wasn’t until my sophomore year of high school that I decided to push myself so that I could get into a four year college. I shot-gunned my applications, applying to twenty two universities. When looking into Tufts, the passionate students and professors, and the varied programs the school offered, aligned with what I wanted in a school. Now, I can’t believe that I am a rising sophomore. My friends say I am an anomaly because my interests are extremely varied and I’m involved with so many activities. At Tufts, I’ve been mostly involved with the Institute for Global Leadership’s EPIIC program on Russia, and the ALLIES Civilian-Military organization.
money to support yourself? Last but not least, Pine Island needs to teach their students how to invest in their future. It would have been nice to know that there were tools out there such as money bonds and the stock market that I could have been investing in to help increase my financial stability over time. I have many friends that have set up money bonds that have grown over 4 percent in only three years’ time! The money in which I possess could have been growing in money bonds or even in the stock market, but my high school failed to teach me either of those options. Pine Island High School needs to step up their game and start teaching students how to properly manage their
I am impressed with the academic and athletic program Archbishop Mitty High School has to offer. When I shadowed at the school I felt the spirit and camaraderie amongst the students. The instructors were welcoming and some had me participate as if I were a part of the class. The campus is impressive and I noticed plans of expansion with the construction of the science building. Continuing to receive religious educational instruction will reconfirm my familial belief in the Supreme Being which is important in the making of an individual's spiritual and moral convictions. This is another aspect why I choose to study at AMHS. Opportunities to explore my interest is plentiful at AMHS through clubs, sports, and charitable organizations. It
Upon reading and analyzing Clement Middle School’s Mission Statement, it appears it is well written and contains all the attributes discussed in this paper: philosophical, psychological, and social.

My first year was tough since my sister just moved out and my mother and I had to find a new home which affected me a great amount as I ended my first semester with a GPA of 3.0. As life progressed I realized why I have always had the urge to devote my life to the law. My ultimate purpose in life is to make a positive difference in this country and leave my mark such as Joseph Pistone (former FBI agent). I rose from having a GPA of a 3.0 to currently holding a 3.86 after a year by grasping the challenge of switching to A.D. Henderson University School/ FAU High school. This transition challenged me to an extremely competitive and rigorous program where students were fully dual-enrolled at Florida Atlantic University; taking college courses to fulfill high school requirements.
A gathering place in school or in the community would be, a football game at Kirtland Central High School. I think this because that’s where, everyone gathers to become one family to cheer on the players. Also to support them as well. The settings take, place on the football field. This is where we go against are opponents.
The high school I attended in Hawaii was largely underfunded and did not have the materials necessary to help prepare me for college. In fact, my old high school holds a college readiness index score of 8.7 out of 100 on US News & World Report. Once I recognized that I was in a poor learning environment, I seized an opportunity to transfer from Konawaena High School to Garfield High School (Seattle) in order to better position myself for college. Subsequent to transferring, I enrolled in Running Start courses at Seattle Central College and sought out help to plot my next steps. In addition to applying to several Colleges I was compelled to apply for scholarships, which paid off because I am now a recipient of the Gates Millennium Scholarship.

Last year, I entered my first year in a U.S. High School, as a Junior. Despite a learning curve, I overcame all obstacles to maintain a 4.0 GPA. For this, I was recently awarded a letter of recognition for academic excellence. This is the highest academic achievement that Lambert High School awards to its students. Not only did I possess academic excellence in my core classes, but I also succeeded in my AP Art class. My Junior year presented a challenge, especially in Math and Science; however, I balanced this with my love of Art which allowed me to show my creativity. As a Senior, I have continued to maintain A’s during my first semester and will continue to strive during my second semester. I am highly motivated to prove that as an individual
