By whom, and for what?The National Honor Society, and its equivalent the Beta Club, are organizations created to allow schools to congratulate and reward students for what students are supposed to be doing: studying and learning. Insofar as students see being a member of either organization as desirable, the organizations are doing their job.For a

What are the biggest frustrations of being a high school teacher that ordinary people do not understand?
Every classroom situation is different. One day it is calm and passive and the next day it can get boisterous.No two kids are the same. Each one has a different learning style and most students between the age of 10–13 are volatile. Any minute your best lesson can become your worst. The unpredictability

I didn't learn about girls until after high school, but what I learned was illuminating.It's a good thing that girls like boys, because otherwise the human race would not have survived.Boys fart, scratch, belch, and are otherwise purely boys. Boys, though not simple, think
What is the best time during the day to do homework for a high schooler? I have time during my school day (free periods), right after classes and later in the evening.
When I get home from school, I've found that it is best to start my actual homework after I watch one episode of TV.I first begin with whatever the easiest homework is. I try and rank my actual books in front of me to visualize what homework will be the hardest to complete.Soon enough,
This question cannot be answered with routinely collected statistics.It depends on:When they married (age). It matters statistically.I knew one couple who were high school sweethearts, she married and had a family with another man and when her first husband died, she and her never-married high school sweetheart got married. Their marriage lasted over 25 years until her death.Did

Welcome to life in the world of NTs. I wish I could tell you this will change. Hopefully it will to an extent, but the basic feeling you're having? You should probably accept that it'll be part of life for you.What will change is you'll learn to adapt, to work around it. Be cautious; while

When i was 15, we had 8 weeks of weightlifting in gym. I approached it open-mined. I went in with the other skinny kids and did my best next to the football players and athletes. They were benching 180 and 200 pounds. I struggled with 120.But a funny thing happened. I tried. I

How to manage my time effectively? I am a high school student in honors classes that enjoys kickboxing, skateboarding, soccer, weight lifting, video games, and having a social life. I also want to make music. What can I do
You need to shelve some of your activities. You really can't do everything and expect to be outstanding in any of them. School, one sport, music and weightlifting should keep you plenty busy. If you want to socialize a bit or ride your skateboard or play a video game, that's fine, but you really need to keep

I hate high school so much. Is that okay? The majority of the people are egotistical and narcissistic and I only have a couple of friends.

I'm graduating high school this year without any plans for the future, what should I do? Should I go to college?
Currently in high school, my attitude at this point is (considering my finances) if I get substantial scholarships, I'll go to college.Plan B: 2yrs community college, transfer to a uniPlan C: go to a college back in my parent's home country (Pakistan).Plan D: 4yrs community college. -> at the same time continuing an internship I have with the school

Is there something you wish you Did or regret Not doing back in high school? If your in high school now, is there something you want to do before graduating but not sure how to go about it?
I regret not telling someone how I felt about her. I found out before I could say anything to her that she left this earth, and now it really weighs on me what I did not do, and what could have been if she got to know me. If she rejected me, well, then it was not meant to
What advice would you give me as a high school student dealing with depression? I feel like it got really bad starting in September, and I distanced myself from all of my friends. Now it feels like I have no one to turn to. No one really cares.
First you need to let your parents know.Second, know that a lot of people get depressed. And it happens for a lot of reasons.Third, you need to decide if this is winter blues (aka Seasonal Affective Disorder) or depression with the
What advice would you give to someone who is going to college several years after high school rather than immediately afterward?
Excellent Question! Now is the time to go explore possible careers for yourself.Rather than have to commit to a major in college with no real understanding of what you want to do - or what career possibilities existed - is what many of us had to do. I chose Chemistry, which was an almost total

What is some advice on transitioning from high school to college for students who graduated high school a year early, at 16/17 years old?
I graduated high school at 16, and started university just after I turned 17.I think that I would have been better off if I had taken a gap year between high school and university. IMHO 17 is very young to move away from home and be surrounded by

Hands down. Weightlifting.Not because we had to lift. I was actually one of the top three female weightlifters in my school. It was pretty fun but, dear god, the teacher was borderline pedophilic. Now keep in mind we're all immature Sophmores in high school. Most of us
So far the answers have ignored the most important element of why this is a theme; its because it is mostly not dealt with in Japanese schools.Let me explain, as someone who was bullied in my time in American k-12 schools (to be fair I think most people experience some

I found college to be harder than high school. The reason? Because in college as a general rule you can do what you want. Don't want to go to class? Nobody cares. Don't want to do your homework? Nobody cares
About as nervous and frustrating as it is for most teenage kids. We're all judgmental of our bodies. We're all worried that our equipment won't "stack up" to the guys around us. We are awkward and painfully disarmed. See, I'm not
A teenager's greatest fear becomes their reality whenever they lose all their friends. This happens sometimes even after they have tried very hard to fit in, by wearing the trendy clothes, disobeying their parents, going to all the parties, movies etc. and having all the cool gadgets.
As a Chinese kid who grew up in a predominantly Latino community, I quickly became aware of my place on the ethnic spectrum. Not a bad thing, really. Conversely though, I remained ignorant of my rung on the socioeconomic ladder. Like most of the kids
It was mandatory that we showered in High School, we had one boy who peeded in the shower's until the gym coach caught him.

Yes, and anybody who contends otherwise is being dishonest with themselves and you. I've had many students I found attractive over the years. They may have women's bodies, but they had girls' minds. In addition, it's grossly unethical to exploit your position of authority. I've devoted my
I was always a little "ahead" of my peers in school. Not like one of those geniuses who graduates college at 13, but ahead of most kids. Honors classes from 4th grade to 9th grade, always scored well on standardized tests, etc. I was not an especially diligent student

If it is required, I'm not sure how you'll find any way around this. I suppose you could possibly wrap a towel around yourself and only wash the upper body. You'd still have to strip but you could keep your genitalia covered. I've seen guys at my school do this but we aren't forced to

You watched Finding Nemo, right?Remember that one scene?You know what I'm talking about.The part when all of those fish were caught in the net, and Nemo and Dory and all of them helped them escape?At first, it was as if they all have just given up.

Hello, just want to say hi and that I went through depression in high school too. I'm much older now, been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but back then it was ‘just' depression and some emotional dysregulation. I had the ‘gifted' label too, not that anyone cared.This depression is very serious and I'm glad
That probably depends on what sort of electronic availability your school provides. The school I am associated with has student and parent portals for communication; the GPA is posted there. The teachers also have electronic availability to the schedules, grades, GPA, etc. of their particular students, so one of my students can
Beyond the technical and practical steps in forming the club, it's important to understand the interests of your school. For a club to be successful, it should be engaging and offer value to the students involved. All clubs by definition are social and

How does someone in their 30s who dropped out of high school become smarter? What can I do to learn more and be more intelligent?
First off you cannot become more intelligent since intelligence is ability you are born with and not something that you learn. You can become more educated though. I dropped out of college and yet held jobs that required college education. I simply
Extremely hard.I once heard from a high school teacher here in Pakistan that the education department instructs them to make around 30 or so marks easily attainable so that the overall passing percentage would look good. In Pakistan, you only need 33% marks to pass an exam. If
I think it depends a lot on the person. Last year I started off going to sleep around 10, but as the semester progressed I pushed bedtime back closer and closer to midnight. At the latest I'd get to sleep around 1*. I have friends who get anywhere from 3 or 4 to 9 or
The fear of failing and the insecurity put me in the hospital and took a toll. What followed led to having to quit a teaching job because wage theft, which I thought universities were above allowing department chairs to commit, was putting me into debt. I am prejudice against all employers now because they have it rigged to make
Have you ever heard of the Social Capital, Cultural Capital and Economic Capital?I would say the answer to your question depends on the current balance between these different kinds of Capitals. It also depends if you're contemplating going to college just for the sake of getting a degree or with some specific plan in mind. If you don't feel
I am a little surprised that a high school is arranged around these specific disciplines. This suggests a very dense city setting that makes possible a slicing and dicing of the population into distinct niches.The traditional broad tracks are trades, fine arts, science and engineering and general college preparation. Sometimes business and finance are separate.
This is one of the best things you can do to demonstrate leadership and initiative on your application.I mentioned it briefly in this workshop, but when it comes to your activities list, admissions committees absolutely have preferences in the types of activities and leadership they prefer to see.Nearly every student has
I attended a large high school and often run into people I honestly don't remember. Why do I always feel so good to see them when they recognize me and make small talk?
Let's be real... you like it because they remember you and you don't remember them. If it weren't the case, you wouldn't have mentioned it. I feel the exact same way. I despised high school despite (tw: annoying humble brag) being
I'm 15. I have 2 anxiety disorders, ADHD, & depression. My problems always came from school, but I still had A's. Now, I'm failing 1 class & have C's in others. I can't bring up my grades & my parents will hate me if they see them. What do I do?
The very first and most important thing I want to say is this: Your parents will never hate you. What you're feeling is the output of your anxiety about failure, school, and whatever else it is in your life that produces that response. And so to the question:What do you do?I typically reply with a
You can do it, but it will take a while. Let me provide a little context first.
I'm a high school senior who has done miserably in high school due to struggles with depression and anxiety, what can I do to get into college?
Wait a year or two. Work then apply to college as an adult of 20/21. It's what I did. I got my GED due to having to do one more semester of classes past graduation if I stayed. I scored high but I wasn't a very good student. Instead I worked for about two years and
Congratulations! You've finally made it to the last ladder of the high school climb.Remember to stay focused.
Attend classes, do your homework, try to grasp that most of the other kids are also socially awkward, and see your MD ASAP about getting help for your depression-it's a brain illness, and your doc may be able to prescribe meds and also refer you to a therapist, who can
In my school when I was younger, we had this rule where if the teacher was 15 minutes late we were allowed to leave the class. Did anyone else have this rule and actually follow it? Where did it come from?
I have heard that rule on a college level--and I had a number of profs who advised us to ignore it, because they did not honor it. And on the college level, they didn't really have to.I cannot imagine a K-12 school allowing students to just leave if the
Is it acceptable for a high school teacher to take a break from the subject that he or she teaches in order to lecture her students about her (unrelated to what she teaches) political opinions?
IT depends. If the students come from a class where politics is being discussed and they are continuing the conversation and there are some confusions and other students aren't clear about the political process, then yes the teacher has a right to continue and clear up those issues that are confusing. The teacher can
You have to weight the pros and cons of going to college but ultimately the choice is up to you.College is a choice that many students make because it allows them to receive higher education in a particular area of study that they are interested in. Many

Let me approach the answer a little differently. There are three basic economies in the developed world. One relies on resource extraction such as mining for ore, drilling for oil, harvesting timber or planting crops. There are opportunities for people without an education in this economy but you will probably never become rich unless you hire people with

I went to a friends graduation recently at a community college. Along with the regular college students there were 38 students that completed associates degrees before completing high school I was pretty impressed. I got to thinking if I should have done that. I also
So apparently, I'm in high school and some of my friends were playing beside a group of boys and they said they heard a boy telling his friends that I'm cute. Is this a good thing? And does that boy like me? And what does 'cute' stand here?
Be extra careful when listening to other people rumors.Especially in highschool,when the favourite past time is to create rumours and then laugh.If you like the boy,just go say hi,don't just wait for a rumour to go around that he likes you.Bear in mind,normally when a highschool guy says he
This girl who used to bully me in high school just recently tried to ask me out on a date, how should I handle this situation?
