To begin with, in high school and colleges teachers are nice and let student’s hand in late work, while other teachers are mean and don’t let you hand in late work. The teachers teach the students what they have to learn in order to pass the class. Students get homework and class work almost every day and they also have to study for exams. The homework is due the next day that the student attends the class, and the class work is supposed to be done in class and turned in at the end of the class period. Also, in class the teachers like to give instructions in their own way, such as lectures from the book or power point depending on the different ways they like to teach their students.
High school provides a strict academic to allow all students to be both successful and challenged. High schools want their students to succeed in their academic education. There are many classes for students of different levels. A student is put in classes of his or her level but also challenging, for instance if a student is in average English class but the student is ahead in math, he or she is put in an honors math class. High school gives their students classes that will be necessary in the student’s life and in college.
There is just one long lunch period compared to the two short breaks you have in middle school. This may take time to get used to, but its better since you have time for everything in one whole period. You can even go out somewhere far during lunch and be back to school on time. In middle school, we were not allowed to leave school premises during recess; however in high school, we can go wherever we want to during lunch. You get more freedom in high school compared to middle school.

What I found odd was that my studying method changed when I came to high school. I obviously still studied and applied myself, but my mentality was not the same. To this day I cannot figure out why that did happen but I plan to go back to the mentality that I had when I was in grade school for college. The library will become my new home since it pretty much has everything that I need to study and finish the work for my classes. Along with that, I also plan to either find a study buddy from each class or form a study group.
College is all about multitasking. Personal planners, whether paper or electronic, can really help students balance homework, due dates and exams. One should try to get homework done early, thus reducing the stress procrastination can bring. The Internet is a tool that can help greatly with this, and users can find a myriad of different types of organizers there to help keep track of assignments and classes. Another important element is for each individual student to find their own best method of studying.
Classroom learning is better than online learning because you’re actually in a classroom with your teacher in front of you and you’re actually doing hands on work. When thinking about whether or not you want to attend an online college or actually attend a college close to home you want to think about the preparation time, place, lectures, study aids, group projects, class work, assignments, feedback, reading materials, learning, and additional aspects. When considering attending a classroom setting college the preparation time is very fast after you purchase your textbooks you are ready to attend class and participate as indicated by the syllabus. When taking classes you are scheduled for a set time and place for each class. When attending lectures they are usually presented to a group at the same time and it allows for immediate questions and changes.
To have a plan and goal in your schooling is a good way to start as well, and a system with your schedules and everything else will be also very helpful to maintain a good grade in college in all your classes. The first thing that is very important is attendance that is because if you do not show up for your classes it will hurt you in various ways. It can get you super behind on everything that is going on in class. And in college you are given points each day for showing up to class and if you’re not there those are class points you are losing for each of the days you do not come. Most teachers give you a couple days that you can be absent for and any more days you are absent after that points are taken off.
This is the school I remember most when I think about the beginning of my academic career. Swanson is where I made my childhood friends, and it is also where my first memory of being proud of an academic achievement took place. In the 4th grade we would take a placement test to determine whether we should be in advanced math, regular math, or lower math classes. For the first couple of tries I was always put in the regular math class. I wasn’t discouraged but I always wanted to be in the advanced class here all my friends were.
Students have little say over what classes they will take and when they will take them, as most of the classes are pre-arranged. On the other hand, college is voluntary and can be very expensive to attend. Because attendance is optional (and costly), students tend to be more motivated and are there because they have a clear plan for their futures. Generally, college professors will not hold students’ hands and will not offer one-on-one attention, unless asked. College professors expect students to be mature enough to understand the material or ask for help when they do not.
