- In high school, students will experience a wide range of emotions, feelings, and emotional, physical and mental strains. The major strain that almost every student will face is stress. As Pope (2010) says, “More than 70 percent of the high school students reported that they felt often or always stressed by their schoolwork, and many admitted to taking illegal stimulants to stay awake to study and complete the lengthy homework assignments each night (p.5).” Whether the students are stressing over a test, their grade point average, their college acceptance, or even their upcoming sporting event, high school students experience stress on a daily basis....   [tags: High school, Extracurricular activity, College]

High School Schools Should Not Be Getting Educated For The Real World

- After going through high school and now being in college, I have realized that high school can be sort of a joke because it often does not fill its mission. High schools waste students valuable time, on drilling unimportant information and enforcing pointless rules. Students should use that time to be getting educated for the real world and not to just pass a test. Although preparing for standardized testing is very important, schools need to focus on educating students on how the world works. Many aspects go into creating an effective high school program....   [tags: Education, High school]

Graduation Speech High School At Mission High

- After moving to the United States, I found it difficult to adjust to the American educational system because it was completely different from Panama, where I was born and raised. Growing up, I was often labeled as the daughter of Chinese immigrants. Although education was extremely important for everyone, Chinese students like myself were the exception.
