It's kinda like middle school, but with more freedom. You arent so babied and more, and you are given more responsibility, and more is espected of you
it might be a little scary at first for maybe the firs 2-3 days, but high school will grow on you and it will be a great experience.
ur not babied anymore and PLUS you are DEFINITELY expected to do more. the teachers expect you to do ALOT. i mean..projects,papers to do...the honors classes are kinda hectic.but it also depends on what class u take.
like honors,regular...AP courses.
they're all kinda on different levels.
so it depends on the school,teacher, and the curriculum.
It really depends on the school. But as others have said, you have a lot more freedom, and it's not such a huge deal if you miss one homework assignment, the way it was in middle school. Teachers won't make you study the way they used to, as a result you need to make sure you study. It's really important to use your time wisely, take challenging classes, but remember to save some time to relax and make friends. Good luck to you :)
like Middle school just more classes, Homework, More Responsiblity,especially for your actions things are Harder freshman year but then you get into the flow of things and its no big. High School is the time that colleges pay serious attention to you. So if you want to go to a good University i would suggest if you like to play around cut it down. You will know more about it when you get there. And all this stuff you see on T/V about High School its dramatized.
it depends where you go to school (and you really want to choose ur school wisely) my shcool we get alot of freedom and unlike the misconseption that the more freedom you give students the worse they are there are hardly any fights because everyones nice to each other but generally its kinda like middle school except you get more work and ur required to think for yourself more
I like that I got to choose some classes that I wanted to take, so tha made school a bit more fun for me. The worst part is I got seperated from most of my friends. My best friends and I have had 1 to zero classes together for two years, and for two years, I have not had a single class or lunch shift with my boyfriend. I know thats not what school is about, but it really is a drag without all that moral support.
Only joking. It's a lot like junior high, save for the fact that things get a bit stricter.
High school teachers generally don't give you late grades, and they expect you to do all your work on time, no matter the excuse, unless you're sick.
If you're absent and miss work, you're still expected to get it in in the appropriate amount of days, and they won't remind you. They're trying to prepare you for college.
It's actually much more fun than junior high, because you get more freedom, and there are signature events such as Homecoming, Pep Rallies, and Prom. Not only are there fun activities, but you can choose your classes, and some classes are really enjoyable. I'm taking music theory and it's pretty fun.
This may sound cliche, but High school is what you make of it. I have been out of high school for 11 years now and looking back, i really loved h.s.! I was involved in clubs, sports, theater and special events. High school gives you more opportunities for meeting new people, better education, trying new things and helping to find out 'who you are'. Teachers do expect more, they expect you to start being self-motivated, they want you to participate, they want you to act responsibly and do good work, but in the end, high school is that next step in your education. It is the foundation upon which your college years will grow from. On the slightly negative side, there are more cliques, more social expectations, greater peer pressure and more drama than in grade school and jr. high, however, one thing i learned in high school is that everyone has their own clique. Everyone has a place. Bottom line, enjoy high school! Be a good student, absorb the materials your teachers give you, fall in love with learning, and HAVE FUN!
Well, it really depends on what school and your perspective. HIgh is kind of like middle school, the kids have matured (some none, others in more ways than one), you get more involved in extracurriculars, and especially if you're taking honors courses, the standards are higher.
In some schools, there's a lot of frivolous drama; just try to keep above it.
Many high schools are different from each other, Some are small and may have a few dozen students, others are large and have 5,000 or more students. The large high schools are like little cities.
The teaching staff may vary from a few to several hundred.
The subject requirements are English, Math, Science, Social Studies and perhaps a Foreign Language.
Some schools may have special classes including Honor, Advance Placement, IB and Special Education.
Many schools have a good number of electives that students may choose. Some of these electives may be variations of the subjects listed above such as Physics and Chemistry. Other subjects may be different such as Computers, Automobile Shop, and Cosmetology.
Schools also may have varying time schedules. Some begin at 7 AM, some may end after 6PM. Schools may have more than one session with the seniors coming the earliest time and leaving earlier than the others. Freshman may begin their day later and leave later.
Schools have a variety of after school activities involving teams and clubs. Some have many, some have few.
There usually is a principal, one or more assistant principals, guidance counselors, deans, paraprofessionals, security, school aids, custodians, cafeteria workers, secretes and others.
Some schools are huge in size and others have just a few rooms, Some are new and others are old. Some are clean, others are dirty.
In many high schools the teachers are subject matter specialists. They sometimes do not consider that you have other subjects than their own. Teachers frequently have 5 classes which means that they could have 150 or more students in a day,
High schools draw from a wider geographic area and many of your classmates may live quite a distance from you.
it depends on what city/town you're in mine was s!@&$ville.
It's a tortuous hell.avoid it at all costs!
