We are used to the friends that we’ve made in elementary and middle school, but finding other friends who want what’s best for the long term might even be better. Some students give into peer pressure to seem cool or to build popularity. Incoming freshman shouldn’t have to worry about what anyone thinks is “cool”. Students need to learn to be their own person and have friends who support their goals. Joining clubs that spark an interest can be a really effective way to meet new people with shared interests. When students join clubs, they make friends who might have the same ideas of what career path they want to take part in. Through high school, I’ve joined groups that have given me a real sense of friendship that is supportive. I know first hand that when you meet other students that share the same interests as you, you connect right away. Joining clubs can provide a sense of independence because students are in charge of what they do and what needs to be done. Going to games, rallies, and dances can bring students together. Students are all aiming towards the same target, to have fun and show spirit for their school. Also, joining a study group or getting a partner for every class can really make school life easier. There can be less pressure to understand a concept fully when students have partners to study
I have much respect Norwich University but school but it is not the right school for me. I wish to live in a college town and have a better campus atmosphere. I have a big goal in my life which Norwich cannot provide for me. I am living a different lifestyle that not many people live and I hate it, it is taking away from the life I want to live. I know what I need to be successful in college and after college in my life and if I do want to reach those goals Norwich does not fit in with that.
Why did I decide to attend college? I chose this path for my life when I was very young, both of my parents attended some form of higher education. They both ended up living fairly well, I decided that I wanted to be successful in life as well and that going to college would be an integral part of my future. I want to be able to live in comfort; be able to be a productive member of my community still, become an adult, and be able to understand things in a new light.
As a kid you are always told you are going to school to later on go to school again. This to a kid in elementary school could be exciting because in their class they still get nap time and play games all the time. After all, we all wish we could go back to the days where we got to sleep all the time. Where as to a student in Junior high, this is when they are still getting fun days such as activity day and or Christmas parties this however is not provided to high school students. This will make them have something to be excited for multiple times. Compared to the thoughts of a high school student, whose main day they have to look forward to is Graduation day. A common question asked is if you think you have received the amount of information
My first thought about high school is that it’s going to be scary.That is a big transition for a soon-to-be 8th grader.There are new people and to me,it’s hard to make new friends because I’m used to having a small group of people that I know.It is also exciting because you get to have better classes,such as Foods or Chemistry.If you’re lucky,some of your friends may be
I attend a relatively small, private, Catholic high school in northern New Jersey called Don Bosco Prep. I am involved in a variety of activities including sports, music, and various clubs and organizations. My school encouraged me to grow academically, socially, culturally, and spiritually. Our school motto is “empowering young men for life”. I feel that my school has given me the tools to be an engaged student. The school promotes a brotherhood which has benefitted me personally. Whether a friendship forged from a study group or one formed with a teammate, each friendship brings different experiences to my life for which I am grateful.
I have been thinking about high school since was young. I thought it was so far away and now I am ready to graduate middle school and go to high school. This got me thinking about college. I realize that I need to find a high school that will help me succeed and reach my goal of going to college. I need a program that will help me find new things that will interest me. As an 8th grader getting ready to go into high school I was looking at applications and, I came across Lake View High School and I was intrigued. As I read on I was satisfied with what I read because I know that this program will help me succeed in high school and college. Knowing that, I really want to be a part of this school.
Six years after graduating High School, I have finally decided to pursue a college education. Three, fairly common, factors played in to my decision to go back to school: learning new things, building confidence in myself and pursuing my desired career. I understand that graduating college is a difficult task, which is why I must make a plan for my success and stick to it. I must also rely on my personal strengths and my motivation to guide me through the tough times that I am sure to experience on my road to success to get my degree in Criminal Justice. I have always been a person who is eager to learn new things.
When I was in middle school, I truly didn’t care for school. I just thought it was a mandatory part of the everyday adolescent child. I came to school each day dreading the fact that I have to sit for hours and listen to lectures that I thought to myself that I don’t need in the future. It was the beginning of the second semester in eighth grade, I was called in by my advisor. She told me that if I don’t improve my grades, I would have to repeat a grade, and I would have to wait two years until I enter high school. This unnerving fact stopped me in my tracks, and I remember the cold feeling that suddenly surged through my body. There was a possibility that I could fail and repeat a grade. And so I thought to myself, is this really how I want to continue my life? Is
Middle school to high school is a big jump from not only school to school but also new people coming into our school, harder academics, sports are now a part of your school life, and a jump from school to school. My thoughts on high school have really changed over the past few weeks. When I first realized that we we're going to be in high school shortly, I got a little freaked out. Although I know alot of high schoolers and specific people that go to West I still feel overwhelmed by the fact that i'm going from a 600 person school to a 1,200+ person school. For the longest time I felt if high school would be the hardest part of my life and getting accustomed to the new setting would be hard for me, I thought the people there we're mean and
I am a Hispanic who lives with wonderful parents who unfortunately could not go to college. It was very expensive for them to attend college. I will be a first generation college student seeking to make a statistical change. I want to be one of those few Hispanics that do go to college and end up getting a doctorate degree. I have lived all my life with one goal: to earn my doctorate degree. I am a young adult fully aware of the hard physical labor my parents have to go through each day to provide for our family. By helping them, I am more aware of how difficult it really is for them. I do not want to live in the tradition of most Hispanics: I do not want to end up in a job in construction, or landscaping that will not allow me to develop my
Each and every school presents itself with new opportunities for their students; UHS presents some of the best opportunities in the country for music students such as myself. UHS provides their students with one of the best music programs available in California. This is one of the many reasons I long to attend UHS. As a violinist I want the best way to improve, along with honing my skills and University High School is the best place to do so. In addition the small classroom, as well as the low school population sparks my interest. I believe that the enclosed environment will provide enhanced collaboration between the professor, and student. This connection between mentor and pupil is critical to victory in high school, and large schools with
As a first-generation student, the privilege to attend college has always been a goal of mine. The ambition I hold to further my education is due to the encouragement both of my parents have provided me with. Before I graduated high school, my decision was to take a year off before I attended college. As the year went on I came to realize that the choice I made was not to my advantage, I ended up regretting my decision. Throughout my gap year, I became aware of all the advantages college had to offer me and the experiences I was missing out on. It would be remarkable if I were to get admitted to the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. I would get the opportunity to attend a college of my choice and would be able to pursue my education. For me to attend a college in my hometown would be ideal. I would be able to receive the college experience and education close to my home, family, and friends.
I would like to attend Kennedy Catholic High School for many reasons. One reason I would like to attend Kennedy is because of the better education as a private and Catholic school. When I shadowed at Kennedy, I noticed that there were a lot of AP class available and enjoyed seeing people were placed at the levels of their needs. Another reason I would want to attend Kennedy Catholic is because of the wide variety of sports that I am interested in such as Volleyball, Basketball, and Football. I also like that there are many clubs to join or create. Specifically, I am interested in joining or creating a cultural diversity club. In addition, from the moment I shadowed, I knew I felt comfortable being there. The kind community, diverse students,
