  • The Benefits Of High School Education In High Schools

    During my time in high school, our choir went to state every year, the art department won first in show year after year, and our forensics team won state two out of the three years I participated. We worked incredibly hard for those achievements; however, year after year, the allotted budget for extracurricular activities went to new football uniforms, or a new score board. We never understood why they got fresh uniforms and new equipment every two years when they couldn’t win one game. All the while, music clubs were stuck sharing sheet music, and the theater department paid for their own supplies for set design. Institutions of education across America carry the weight of shaping the next generations minds. Federal and state funding directly…

  • The Importance Of Standardized Testing In High School High Schools

    equally. For example, I went to Kelly High School, which is a public high school that was on probation and had a great deal of violence and gang problems.

  • Media In High School

    wanted to explore how realistic the media portrays school in the United States. When I was younger I attended a private school and used to watch family sitcoms that would portray public high school students and I always thought that 's how it was.... boy was I wrong! My sophomore year I transferred to a public high school and it was nothing like the image that the media created for a typical high school in the United States. I 've always wanted to understand why the media (TV shows, movies,…

  • The Importance Of High School

    While I was growing up I thought every public school was like mine, with bad food and strict schedules. As I transitioned from middle school to high school I learned that there were better public schools. My school, Sunnyside High School, had a 48% graduation rate when I was a freshman. The community was mainly made up of undocumented farm workers, including my parents. The high school was doing so poorly that a professional principle had to come and change the school system. We started to get…

  • High School Experience

    “High school isn 't a very important place. When you 're going you think it 's a big deal, but when it 's over nobody really thinks it was great unless they 're beered up.” (Carrie by Stephen King) My high school experience was not the greatest and I can very much relate to that quote from Carrie. My high school career had the potential to have been better, where I could have graduated instead of attaining my GED. There were three main things that interfered with my high school education.…
