School hours of some schools start way to early for some students. In order to function right teens need 91/4 hours. If teens don’t get that nine and a quarter hours of sleep are not necessarily lazy its just not good for them not to have less than nine hours of sleep. This is why schools start times should start later so kids can have there advantages of getting there full nine hours of sleep in. if school hours start at 10:15am instead of 8:15am it would give teens and extra two hours of sleep in the morning and at night it would give them and extra two hours to stay up and hang out and do homework. This is just one of the reasons people should believe that school start times should be later than what they are now. Most teens don’t get the 9.25 hours of sleep because they don’t get to sleep early enough or because of the school starting times. The starting times of school starting times are way to early. The prove of this is at our school we have students that get on the bus at 6:30am and they have to go to sleep at 8:30pm to get in there nine hours of sleep teenager wants to go to sleep that early. If people went to sleep at 8:30pm can now go to sleep at 10:30pm a two hours difference. That's why school boards should believe that school hours should be fixed. However, schools that start as early as 7:20am results into alot of sleepy teens.furthermore alot of sleepy teens mean alot of failing grades. If a teen slept in class they miss the lesson so in which they don’t understand the assignment and then fails the class. Alot of failing grades means that they don’t pass classes so the following year they have to take that class again. Lets say someone takes Algebra 1 as a freshman if they sleep in class they fail Algebra 1 and have to take it there sophomore year. During high
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…

When you go to the restroom you over hear two of your friends making fun of your outfit. You are wondering if this day could possible get any worse. And then it does…
Diversity is one of the most important things in my life. Throughout high school, I made a variety of friends. They were all from different parts of the world and they each had their own culture and beliefs, They helped me develop into a tremendously diverse personality. My peers taught me to always strive to get the whole story of any situation.
The community I lived in was remarkably open during my high school career. I felt that no matter what I wanted to do, I would be accepted by many people…

through the entrance of a high school running to class because the bell rung and being tardy for the first day is not a good impression. As a naive student coming to a new school for the first time could become a hardship. Growing up in a new place where friendship seems tough to be found and learning how to be on your own could develop into an obstacle. A day that is wanted by many yet taken out of context when It seems to be near. By all means, when speaking of incoming high school freshman's they are…
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…

“160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students.” There are many groups or “cliques” in our lives today, but the sprout of cliques start in high school. From the cool football players who run the school, to the loner who sits in the courtyard reading a book during lunch, at the end of the day we are all equal. These cliques might start in high school, but they have lasting effects on everyone in life. Cliques in high school make it difficult for people…
