Taylor Rhodes 4th hour 2/15/13 Mrs.Pollock L.A. Impossible Love, Ruth VanderBush For a while now I have been reading an amazing, interesting,romantic book known as Impossible Love by Ruth VanderBush. It’s very detailed and amazingly descriptive, and it’s about a high school senior, Makenzie. She fell in love with her English teacher, and as everyone knows a teacherstudent relationship is forbidden. How will this impossible love last? In my book the setting was very evident. The time was modern, around 2012 and the place was at Rosewood High School and the main character’s (Makenzie) house. An example of this was “I can’t wait for you to meet my parents! Come over to my house around 6:30.” Makenzie said (96). This shows that Harry, Makenzie’s boyfriend and English teacher, was going to come over to Makenzie’s house and spend time there and get to know her parents. The other setting, Rosewood High, was also very evident clearly stating where she was. “Here it goes, another day at Rosewood High or as I like to call it, hell.” (34). This quote has fully explained that Makenzie was, and had been going to Rosewood High School. Therefore the setting has to take place at Rosewood High School, and based on modern technology, this story clearly takes place in the present time . One of the main characters, Makenzie, is a normal high school senior. She had beautiful flowing locks of golden blonde hair, she was thin, tall, and had absolutely beautiful brown orbs, and all together she was absolutely stunning. “‘She was unspeakably beautiful I could not take my eyes off of her’” (37). Makenzie was truly beautiful, many people had noticed it, proving that her beauty was true. Harry, another main character., had just as much beauty to him. He had beautiful soft brown curls that flopped perfectly. He also had powerful green orbs, he was thin, tall and altogether an stunning man. “‘I heard there’s this really cute new teacher, but I have not saw him anywhere!’ Kelsey said, I shrugged and headed into English class. As we walked in, there stood an absolutely stunning man, he had curls and green eyes, he was perfect. ‘I think you have found him’ I whispered to Kelsey.” Harry was beautiful, Makenzie described him perfectly, perfect, he had no flaws, except one, he fell in love with his student. These two characters I felt were the main ones because the story evolves around them. The conflict is character vs. society, in this story the student and teacher develop a relationship that has to stay a secret. “‘This has to stay a secret between you and I because if the school board finds
out I could loose my job.’”(79). Makenzie and Harry have to keep their relationship a secret because if anyone finds out…
Why Students Should not Have to Take Standardized Tests
I don’t believe that high school students should have to pass a standardized test in order to receive a diploma. In my opinion it does not improve academic achievement but it worsens it. I have many valid reasons to support my opinion.
The first reason I believe that high school students should not have to pass a standardized test is because it keeps many good, smart students out of college. Some colleges require a certain…
this mean to me? This meant going new school without the knowledge of whether I would find my niche in that school. To me, transferring to a new school was one of the most intimidating events that I have ever faced. Through these experiences, I have often felt secluded and out of place; however these events have molded me into the affable person that I am today.
Second grade marked the beginning of my long and arduous journey. I went to Castaic Elementary School for Kindergarten and the first grade…

Most commonly, dropping out refers to a student quitting school before he or she graduates or avoiding entering a university or college. It cannot always be ascertained that a student has dropped out, as he or she may stop attending without terminating enrollment. It is estimated 1.2 million students annually drop out of high school in the United States…
social life there are always those choice we are faced with that can change our lives forever. This occurrence happened to my brother in high school, no one noticed until further down the road but non the less he was still forced to conform to the society he was growing up in.

As a high school student, I was an athlete and competition fueled my drive and lust for success and recognition. My focus was always on winning and helping my team by any means possible. Although my strengths are unique compared to those of others, I believe that as a unique individual I should and could be a student of high value with nothing but hard work to contribute to this university. I was brought up and cultivated…
The Senior Itch—the incurable chaffing we all crave to scratch. The cure? Graduation. As we progress through our high school years growing with wisdom and maturity, we all yearn for freedom. Yet what we desire most is not always what is best for us. Although most won't want to admit it, extending our high school career to five years would make an important and beneficial impact on our future. With the four years that are currently provided, there is not enough time for motivated students to accomplish…

High School Reflection Paper
Mosinee High School
Since I have been in high school for four years now, I have learned many things about life, education, and my future. During my time here at Mosinee High I have been involved in everything I wanted to be in. This has given me a great high school experience. I also believe working has given me as much of an experience as any sport or club I was in did. I have been working since I was 14 and have learned many real life skills that…
ation; they are put in private
schools since birth. Basically their whole life is planned out since the day they start
preschool. An example of this sort of person, would be someone such as Obama. He
had to basically start
developing his plans for going into the government at a very young
. Another example, would be doctors, because they have to start to develop their
skills and take classes starting in high school in order to prepare for med school. But,
they are also seen as very uptight…
Freshman year, I walked into school with my heart racing. It was my first day of high school, and I was as nervous as every other incoming freshmen. My only knowledge of high school up until that point was the horror stories I had been told by alumni. I envisioned walking down the hall and being stuffed into a locker or thrown into a garbage can or robbed of my lunch money, much like in the movies. Needless to say I was petrified.
These ideas dissolved quickly after I spent a few weeks at L-S. I…
