Hello. My name is end i am a senior at Whitesboro High School. Since a very young age, I have strived to get good grades and work hard. I have also taken that hard work and placed it into the community. About a decade ago my family founded the AlS walk and run of utica that occurs once a year, in order to raise money for Lou Gherigs Disease. I have volunteered and walked that, also the Heart Run and Walk, The Boilermaker and the Relay for Life at Whitesboro High School. Every Thanksgiving i also spend my day preparing and serving food at the Rescue Misson to people that are unfortunate enough to not be able to buy a dinner themselves. About a month after Thanksgiving, every year during Christmas time i play the saxophone during traditional Christmas masses held at St. Johns church in Utica. I also play here every Good friday and Easter. I have played the saxophone since fourth grade. I spent a year running a boot camp for kids at Marcy-Deerfield pop warner to help them loose weight for their season. I was chosen to be involved in the National Junior Honor Society in ninth grade. During ninth grade i took honors english and social studies and eleventh grade i took and completed an AP Biology course. I have played many schools sports during my school years including Varsity Football, Varsity tennis, lacrosse in ninth and tenth grade and have also played basketball for CYO. My future plans are still undecided yet i have a very strong interest in physics and…
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.

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.
Growing up my big brother, Pat, was my hero. He was the all star on his high school state championship team, whose quarterback was Carson Palmer, and he seemed to be getting into immense shape. My brother was at the top of…
the leading candidate because of my thirst for success and my quality personality.
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…

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…
