Tales of Gabe Once upon a time in a faraway land called, Honolulu, there lived a young boy named, Gabe. Gabe has lived here all his life and was quite the introvert. He made only a few friends and went about his days as carefree as one could be. However, those days ended as he transitioned into high school, a place where many big decisions are made, decisions such as whether to take AP classes and college/career paths. This marked the point where the quiet little Gabe began to change, both physically and mentally. This new Gabe started to become more outspoken and began to tease others. This enormous change led to new found understandings about Gabe. We begin to see that Gabe loves to dish out jokes and make fun of people but when the tables are turned he just would not take a joke. This attitude started to turn Gabe into somewhat of a bully and this led to a development of his arrogance as well. Fast forward a couple of years and it’s now approaching the end of Gabe’s high school career as a senior he learned many things and had various experiences but some things do not change like his attitude towards some people such as the ones he teases. Now we begin to see more prominent changes for instance his open bullying, before he would just have some small back and forth banter with the individual but now it became strictly one-sided. Another instance is the arrogance, before he would just ask about others’ grades but it turned into something he could use as an insult. Now high school ended and Gabe moved onto college, He is still the same Gabe that we described in high school however the majority of his group of close friends left the beautiful paradise, Honolulu, in the pursuit of a better education. This left Gabe with only one friend who decided to stay as well. Luckily for him, the one friend that stayed also decided to get the same degree as him. The first semester of college Gabe took all the same classes as his friend but that was to be expected because nobody wants to be alone if they can help it. So the first semester flew by and the second semester came and left just as quickly as the first which concludes…
think of you as just another stereotype. They think that since you are young you will most likely drop out of school, not go to college, and be stuck with a child with a minimum wage job trying to make ends meet. People vary rarely see a young mother and think “She is going to make something with her life.” Well I proved that stereotype wrong. I am a teenage mother who got her high school diploma, is going to college full time, who has a full time job, is maintaining a relationship with the father…
Graduating High School without applying oneself to school work, or looking forward to the future, was for myself, and is for many other people a great negative factor for getting started on a positive, and productive outlook on life, toward a better future. The negative effects…

moving to a new school would be a challenge but I never imagined it would be this difficult. To ruin a special friendship and to do everything possible to hurt that person is not acceptable. High school is a extremely important time in a youth’s life, it should not be put at risk by jealous girls. Therefore forgiveness plays an extremely important role in ones high school.
It all began when Sarah moved to Beachwood, a new school and completely new community for her. Beachwood is a high class area, you…

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.

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…

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…
Reflecting upon the film Dead Poets Society, the school of Welton is established on four pillars. The four pillars taught in the school of Welton are tradition, excellence, honor, and discipline which is what standards Bridgeport High School is built upon. Bridgeport is a school that almost fits to these four pillars because it is commonly known that we are an excellent school that carries out many traditions. Also, Bridgeport High School has a large emphasis on the importance of honor which…
