Students, especially during the more difficult parts of their year, often fumble around as zombies, due to too much stress and too little sleep. I have seen this phenomenon to much already at the highs school level, which convinced me to seriously consider a solution to scholastic lack of sleep in college. When (considering I miraculously get in) I start as a student at Johns Hopkins, the first thing I would like to do is start a club dedicated to sleep. One or two days a week, the club will meet in a quiet location to dedicate time to a lengthy and well-deserved nap. With the newly found independence of being alone at college, students often completely disregard sleeping properly for the sake of study or even recreation. By joining a club related to sleep, they can allot part of their week to sleep a little bit more, or catch up on missed sleep from before. I came up with the idea for a Sleeping Club late in my junior year, preparing to battle the five-headed monster which was my set of AP exams. Teachers would often annoyingly remind the “zombified” version of me to keep my head up and pay attention. But at some point, you can’t think about anything except taking a long nap. Fitting one into my schedule back then was much easier said than done, however. After getting home, I would engage in a mix of studying, browsing the web, and watching reruns of lackluster TV shows. Halfway between the fourth calculus practice exam and third episode of Two-and-a-Half men, I would become a non-functional human being, incapable of moving forward. At that point my…

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…
life in comparison to how she would have been living years back if her decision would have been absolutely different. It’s right to say that her “American” dream and indeed well deserved result of her hard work through out the years came true.
Celia moved to Los Angeles because she wanted to be more in life than a high school graduate with a part time job for the rest of her life. In Mexico, it isn’t the easiest thing in the world to become something else, something bigger. Money is a big issue…
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…
means leaving a school or group for practical reasons, necessities, or disillusionment with the system from which the individual in question leaves.
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…

, have been planning out their lives since
birth. These are the people that know what they have to do to achieve success and their
goals in life. They are well organized, and are very decisive about what they want to do.
These would usually be the people that had a higher education; 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 …
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…
