The Pros And Cons Of Middle Schoolers

Improved Essays
Middle schoolers; they are young, distracting, irresponsible and blame worthy. But as East Jordans 2014-2015 school year ended our school board decided it was an abundant idea to put middle school students in with the high school students. At first it was fine, until middle school students had classes with us, because Middle Schoolers should not be intertwined with high school students and their classes.
The school board needs to change middle school class regulations , Or bring back the Middle School building. The classes that the middle school students are attending causes unfairness to some high school students. Not only do high school students need certain credits to graduate but middle school students are younger and they have their whole high school careers ahead of themselves. Certain colleges require better academic credits or more than what it takes to graduate.

by “younger” meaning they are not as developed in schooling, they don't care as much and they are most likely to be bullied or forced into peer pressure. For example, being younger has countless advantages but when it comes to high school disadvantages like bullying will occur more often, as well as peer pressure. Being little and not knowing how to say no they become easily targeted when it comes down to it. Facing facts middle school students do not care as much, they tend to think everything will come easy to them, but having high school classes gives them a wake up call and forces them to change everything that they did in middle school before they are ready. Being a younger student in a higher class causes troubles in understanding certain academic requirements because they are not fully developed in learning like upperclassmen; this proving once again that they are too young to have high school

    According to source “Navigating the Psychosocial Pressures of Adolescence: The Voices and Experiences of High School Youth”, “...few people in the society are unaware that navigating the psychosocial pressures of adolescence can be a difficult and arduous task” (Patricia, Hanh and Ann 416). In response to pressure, schools and families should step up their efforts to assist young people. In this case, young people will have a more comfortable competitive environment because they will have less pressure. Without the pressure, no one will succeed. Often successful, highly accomplished students are treated differently than others because they are not vulnerable.…

    Normally, a parent will want the best for their child, but how can a school guarantee that their child is getting the maximum education during the time at school. Also, for a fact many students are skipping grade levels, because of the level of “easiness” that the grade had. Some say to make the grading more extant (more effort is needed to be put forth). While others believe that they just have AP classes with harder questions for the accelerated group of minors. Along with this, less students would fail if they had “downgraded” classes for the slower…

    These people believe that as long as students go to school and make good grades that they will be prepared for college. Most of the people who support these thoughts come from schools with lower test scores and schools with academic failure. These statements aren’t entirely false, because an education is an education, but at the same time there are so many different ways that your education can vary. With that being said, not every high school is going to meet the same standards of other high schools. Some high schools do not have the same funds that others do, and this does not allow them to have the resources and tools that the more upscale schools…

    Enrolling in a college level Composition class as a high school junior has been a challenge, but provides me with rewards such as free college credits and the preparation for post-secondary education. However, taking the difficult class does not benefit my GPA or class rank. Many times, I have considered joining a high school english class instead, as it is less challenging, and there is a higher probability of receiving a better grade. These downfalls often deprive me and other students from registering in rigorous courses, especially with an unweighted grading system. An unweighted grading system is a standard concept where the average of all class grades is based on a 4.0 scale (“Weighted”).…
