Jocks, “preps”, punks, and nerds are among the most common one would find in a high school. Dividing the student body into these categories can be a little confusing to some people and, in my opinion, unnecessary, but it’s just a fact of life that is to be handled like any other means of classification. Jocks are the athletic, popular students of a high school. They usually play every sport and excel in them. They are usually classified as the “cool kids” and are known by everyone in and close to their school.
North Farmington High School Turner Lotts 12/7/11 4th The reason I love being a student at North Farmington High School is because of the people that attend school. I used to go to Farmington High School my underclassmen years, then I transferred to North for my junior and senior year. There is a huge difference between the two high schools, and it’s unimaginable. The people at North are different then anyone in the world because, their acceptance of everyone, and the happiness students and staff radiate. North was probably one of the best schools I could have ever transferred to because there acceptance of everyone is outstanding.
I knew college wasn't a place for me. My grammar and punctuation was bad, and math was also, a poor subject for me too. I struggled a lot just to finish high school, I managed to make it through high school. I had to take it one day at a time. Sometimes, I didn't want to go to school because I knew I was going
You have to be (literally have to be!) a damn good, A+ scoring, genius. Add in tall lanky guys with big round glasses, insecure personality, a weird obsession with anime or any other fictional characters that don’t really exist, teachers’ favourite or pet and a permanent front seat in the class and there you have it. But almost every other clique always owes their barely passing grades, in exams you didn’t know you had or the quiz you never actually studied for, to them. Without a doubt.
Uncertain if online school was really for me. Going through the materials online I really like what I read and having one class pre semesters was a good for me deal. Putting my mind to the ultimate test is something that Ashford can do for me. Just by taking my first three classes I feel more comfortable with school.
We've all been wanting to be friends with those couple of cool kids to feel fully accepted and that you actually matter. Not being able to be friends with those groups is kind of lame. Even though it is said that high school groups get along, they don't because people don't know how to deal with others differences, focus too much on them selves, and don't care to go out of their way to be nice. Its true people don't know how to deal with others differences. In an article Clay Tucker says " We all have difficult people we need to deal with.
I had a hard time adjusting to a new environment, so I became extremely shy when before I was more at outgoing. I felt invisible. One of my friends who was also in the Esol program also got placed in the regular classroom. We had different classes but shared the same lunch period. So I didn’t feel so alone.
I tried to keep focus but my solitude was starting to become unbearable. Yes there were many students around but they all seemed to have their own network since they knew their classmates from their previous schools while all of my friends were in regular ed classes. I started to rebel and slacked off so much that teachers began to wonder why i was in a advanced class since they thought i couldn't hack their work load when in reality all i wanted to do was be placed in regular ed just to be with my friends. Odd and dumb reason, i know but I didn't know that at the time. Eventually I was moved from classes due to my insubordination and i was content at the time.
As well as “The making new friends” challenge. I mean why bother making new friends if you are going to lose them each year? But in the other hand, you should expect (and accept) the diversity of people. What to expect from college is not really something to specific. For example, many of us weren’t really use to studying during high school, mainly because it was so unchallenging.
The first year of college forms students into well-rounded individuals. A lot of people don’t come to realize how accustomed they are to their social groups until they are forcedly pushed out of their comfort zones. Starting college is essentially hitting the restart button; it’s a fresh start, a chance to create a new reputation. In my first few weeks of college I met many new people during welcome week, so many that it was hard to recall some of their names. Though it was overwhelming, when classes started I had a chance to make actual connections with people and make new friends.
