Personal Experiences In High School

Better Essays
“Enjoy it now because these four years will fly by.” I’ve listened to those 10 words for the past two years. People say the high school experience is the most important experience that you will encounter, I disagree. I believe that life itself is the most important experience and high school is simply another stepping stone towards your final destination. I do believe that high school can really change you in either a positive way or a negative way, it can have a big effect on you whether you want it or not. During high school you discover many different people and according to Regina George in Mean Girls, there are four different types of social groups in high school; the popular girls, the jocks, the nerds and the weirdos. As unrealistic …show more content…
I personally think that kids shouldn’t be labeled or treated different because of small things but that is how the world works and I cannot do much about it besides go with the flow. High school affected me as well, I wasn’t just some bystander who watched everything happen. During this paper I will talk about my personal experiences in high school and will give my advice for anyone going into or may already be in highschool. I have three main tips of advice for those who were just like me; a little freshmen going into a whole nother life called highschool, my first tip would be to not be too hard on yourself, my second tip would be to have a small social circle which sounds terrible but I will explain my reasoning behind it. My third and final tip which is very cliche but true; do not slack off! Now, to give my reasoning and explanation behind my tips about this crazy thing called high …show more content…
I know that when I was a freshmen that I was intimidated by everything happening around me and I’m sure that others have felt the same way. As I said in this previously in this paper, my three main tips or advice for anyone in high school is, number one; don’t be too hard on yourself. High school is very difficult and you will run into struggles, you just have to keep on going and make it through those four years. My second tip; keep your social circle small. It’s best to just keep your few closest friends with you throughout your high school years rather than many “friends” who will only cause drama and possibly hold you back from reaching your full potential. My third tip; don’t fall behind. High school is difficult enough as it is, you have to always be ready and prepared for any and all work because if you do that, it will all work out in your favor. As I bring this paper to an end, I hope that it can help any high schooler because if I read this paper as a freshmen, well… lets just say that my past two years would have been completely different. That’s all i’ve got, those are my tips and advice but I will say one thing before I end this paper. In the introduction I stated that we go through these four years of struggles, heartbreak, success and all for a slip of

    In contrast, college may sometimes seem as validation for most. Students are only applying because it is what everyone around them is doing or because their parents would not see it any other way. The question of whether or not go to college straight after high school isn’t even an option to many students because of that sole fact of following the steps of life that we have all constructed for ourselves. Many should consider breaking this cycle by taking a gap year or two. A gap year is exactly what students may need, not only for a break from the books, but to be faced with…

    Dual-enrollment is indeed very stressful to a student in his or her last year. However that statement is nothing but a plain excuse. Taking a dual-enrollment class actually helps rather than stress someone out. Taking these college classes while in high school makes it a lot easier for a student freshman year in college. In the future, a student can enter college as a sophomore just because of the dual-enrollment classes the student took their senior year.…

    This is because colleges look at how you do during your high school years and they can tell if you slacked off or not. If they see you were a slacker, they probably will not acknowledge you like would with someone who has excellent grades and put time and effort into high school. Another piece of advice would be make sure you come to school because missing one day could mean you missed a major lecture or even a test or quiz, If you know you will miss a day, go ask all your teachers what you will be missing so the work can be caught up while you 're gone. Do not get into the drama group because drama is not worth your time. Spend time with the friends who are there for you no matter what.…

    My high school experience at High Point High School began as frustrating then it became positive. Being academically independent, since elementary school, I did not feel that high school was going to be a major difference, but I did not take into consideration of a new ambiance with new challenges. One thing that remained the same was the fact that I was always reserved and I stayed to myself. I thought that in high school I was going to be able to leave my shell and be more outgoing. I was wrong, I am still shy and still quiet, but high school did teach me valuable concepts that I will carry on through college.…

    Teachers were also lenient on the student 's performance, meaning I could turn in late work, miss days and I would still have a strong chance of passing or getting a good grade. All these exceptions were difficult to overcome because it 's something I did as a high school student throughout four years, so it became second nature, not something I did on purpose. Teachers in high school need to realize that them putting an emphasis on us needing to pass does not help or get us ready for college. When I was in high school, I often times left things to be done at the last minute, I was not organized to my fullest potential and I did not always try in turning in my best…
