Well, today, I am a freshman..... Wow. I always looked at highschool as "The big kids." And now, I guess I am one of them...... I can't believe it. You can be so independent, there are no rules like "no going to your locker during passing period" or anything to protect you. As long as you do what you shud.... ur on ur own. It's awesome. I can't believe I'm studying "Euclidian Geometry." Anyone else going into HS? It's crazy!

Yes, I'm a freshman and this is my third week of high school. You get much more freedom than any other school and it's great.

I'm in Algebra 2 Honors. smile Geometry was in 8th grade for me.

I started school two weeks ago. You guys all SUCK.

I'm a sophomore, and since I'm in an honors program, I did Algebra I and Euclidean Geometry in Middle School (the Talented and Gifted Middle School Program feeds over into high school) and Algebra II as a freshman. I'm now in Calculus AB, and in a crapload of AP college courses like World History AP, AP 2D Design, AP Spanish IV, and AP Biology. The thing is, the only reason you do the AP's is to get college hours, but to get the hours you have to pass the test, and the tests cost 50 bucks each. Not the cheapest thing in the world.

But anyways, wow. I had no idea everyone was so young. Eighth grade? That was like 2 years ago. Wow.

I start school on September 7th. MUAHAHA. I will be a Sophomore, and I get my license in March. Man, I feel much older than I used to like, a month ago. I am taking Latin 4, AP European History, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, English 10 HNRS, HNRS Biology, and Drivers Ed/Health/PE.

$50 compared to how much classes cost to take in college is nothing. AP and PSEO high school classes that translate into college credits are an insanely good deal.

my schedule for this year (11th grade)

1)Principals of Engineering
2)TV
3)AP Physics/gym
4)AP Physics
5)Humanities
6)Humanities
7)French 4 H
8)Precalc Honors
9)Study Hall

Physics and gym alternate every other day (for third period)
Humanities is a combination of English 11 honors and AP US History.
French 4 is (as far as I know) an AP class.
Precalc honors also includes some non-precalc things. It's the advanced version of the "Math 12" class

Ben - How are you taking Calculus AB as a sophmore in high school?

Haha we have all this high tech stuff. My county is very high tech. razz

I found out my schedule about a week before school started (I started three weeks ago.. scratch that, four weeks ago, my last day of school this week was today, the 24th).

You can get your schedule, your grades, teachers can write comments to you and your parents, you can view your absenses, everything. Teachers don't use gradebooks anymore (only if they want to but why? razz). They all have laptops and do everything there.

By the way, as for not knowing you classes.. you didn't get to pick your courses for 9th grade? o.o Sure you wouldn't know your teachers, the order, or which classes you got, but surely you'd know some of them, right?

Man, you freshman are WAY OFF.

Obviously you haven't met the seniors or sophomores or juniors yet. wink

Highschool is awesome, though, as long as you're not a freshman.

God, I'm glad I'm not a freshman.

Ah..........


The first thing freshman do wrong is FREAK.

Trust me, I was one recently, and I gotta tell you, just chill. Your schedule will work out. If you dont have a locker the first day of school, so what? So you carry stuff in your BACKPACK. Because, the truth is, no one else knows what they're doing either. It's not just YOU.

Deal with it, and you'll do fine.

I don't even have my license yet because I was out of town on all three of the driver's ed dates. And even if I take it now, I won't get my license until next March. And everyone else is driving now. Life sucks all over.

All I can say is enjoy your time in highschool... then again in college / university....

I'm done both... and kind of wish I were going back ( more fun than working full time as a web designer.... i'd rather be learning new stuff than just using the same stuff everyday)

Enjoy it

I like Highschool compared to Jr. Highschool. More freedom. Though compared to college it probably sucks. I also hate the pressure. I am expected to get great greats and it is really annoying, I basically get all B's now because my classes are all difficult high level courses.

Atom, you have absolutly no idea what your talking about. No one freaks, and no one carries backpacks around anymore. I had to start in a different state as well where I knew absolutly no one and had no trouble getting around or having fun and meeting new people.

Please stop posting just for the hell of it. Highschool is great even if your not a freshman, at least for the first week or so then you have to start working again.

Yamfanny you'll have fun, but dont ask seniors anything, they'll lie.

Whoa. Venting abit, aren't you Slick?

I was tryin to help the guy out. Telling him not to worry, it'll get better. Not telling him it sucks. How would you know anyways? Are you IN HIGH SCHOOL?

I am, why wouldn't I know what I'm talking about? Not trying to get in a jam, I just don't think you're looking at this from the right angle. wink And what do you mean no backpacks? WTF? Everybody has a backpack. EVERYBODY. We get too many books not to have one. I think it's even required in Texas now.

And........................

justinjonesisn'tthatcool- I hope you like high school. Hopefully it's better as freshman in 10th grade. At least you'll be able to drive. How's that work anyway? I heard evman talk about that (I won't let him live it down) but so..........do you just go *sophmore, junior, senior* or *freshman, junior, senior* or what? How do you get full credit without 4 years of high school?


CX3- Congrats, man. I hope you find your thing. (I'm pretty sure it's filmmaking) and get out there and do it.


ssjaaron- Mondo Congrats, man. Being a senior must ROCK RIGHTEOUSLY. Although that post couldnt've been any cornier. smile

rffproductions- You're 13, are you not? That's abit young isns 't it? How far does school go through in Holland? Is high school longer or is all the curriculum just done earlier?

Slick, I must say, your first post was uncalled for. We all go to different schools, different environments. At his school, maybe freshmen freak, maybe it is a smaller school with more jack arses. I don't know, but it is a completely different scenario. Our school is so over crowded, cwe did have to carry around backpacks.

Represent, Serp-ant! smile
My school is what we call a 5A, with over 2000 kids in a small area.


Ben goes to a different school, a 3A school with less than like 100 kids.

My school has less tolerance and more dress/stuff/rule codes so it can discipline the entire school without taking time to pull out individuals. It works, and I love my school.

Just wondering, from everybody

What age do you start and end highschool, and what grades does it follow? I'm interested to see how different the public school system are. Ours is so crappy we cant afford tables for the lunchroom.

Atom - From your 4th you go to the "basic school" (or how do U spell it) you have 8 years (incl. infants class). Then you R twelve and you go to the High School. I'm born on 11 dec 1991 so you can calaculate that I'm 13 on High School.

The time how long that you R on high school depends on your 'level'.
Here's a scheme

'Basic Beroeps' 4 years (then MBO)
'Kader theretical' 4 years (then MBO)
'Theoretical Havo' 5 years (then HBO)
'Havo' 5 years (then HBO, and if you're luckey university)
'Vwo' 6 years (after that: Choose by yourself HBO or University)

I hope that I was clear enough !

Best regards,

I'm a junior and now am finally apart of the news show in my tv production class. We have some really cool extremely expensive equipment in the studio that I've never used before, It's really sweet and a really good learning experience. Even though I'm not going to television I'm going to be doing film when I graduate.

I been a frosh for 3 days, and Intro to Broadcasting sucks! They talk to us like we don't even know what a radio or a camera are. I have to take it before I do anything in TV and video production stuff. Also, I'm taking all honors.....blah.

Yamfanny- I know your pain about damm Blagoivijhasdfkfdbnhv (Gov. of IL). I'm up around Chicago...in Glenview (Glenbrook South) It's the sister school to GBN that gained international attention with it's hazing incident a couple years ago.

9th graders in our middle school are considered high schoolers... all our grades are marked as highschool grades and the only reason we aren't in the actual building is because there isn't enough room for us... Therefore it was our first year in highschool... so we were... freshman... meaning now we are... sophmores... [/spellingitoutforatomrealslowandeasycausehedoesn'tgetit]

The time how long that you R on high school depends on your 'level'.
Here's a scheme

'Basic Beroeps' 4 years (then MBO)

srry for the bad explanation, it's kinda complicated...

but if you're 12 you go to the first class and then you R a 'freshman'.

Cuz the school before the highschool has 8 years.

And if you're four. You go to that school, so you are 12 if you hit the High School...

That's how it is in Holland dude wink

Texas is so freakin back-wash-style-messed up.

Ever since I can remember, I've got out of school May 24-27 and started August 12-18 (or something like that) I get 1 week for spring break and 2 for christmas. Next year we move to U.S. standards, and end in the first week of June and start after labor day. It's gonna be so weird, because in order to change the dates they took out a week of x-mas vacation and made spring break a 5-day weekend.

I hate "The Man".

We get:

1 week for Thanksgiving

2 weeks + 1 day for Christmas Break

We don't really have snow days. Maybe at most 2 a year. Year before last, we didn't have any.

All regular holidays like labor day, MLK day, etc..

No February or April One week vacations.

Instead, 2 weeks off in March.

February actually ends up being close to a week off because of Presidents Day, a Faculty work day, an Upperschool day off (because of exams), a short day for reviewing exams. Almost 3 1/2 days off for that week.

All the Jewish holidays. smile


Oh, and, the seniors get to end school one month early to work on some senior stuff.


The thing is, we end up having longer school days and a little bit more homework then most schools. School officially ends at either 3:20 or 2:30, depending on the day, and then after that it's mandatory sports or afternoon activities. I don't get home until 6PM (school officially ending at around 5:30PM). Homework is usually 4 hours (I note that a lot of schools get away with giving worksheets, etc, totalling to around 2 hours of hw each night. We don't get worksheets often. Our assignments are open ended.) Projects are frequent (75% of which are usually group projects. Finding time to work in group projects is often hard.

I do, however, have the pleasure of x-blocks (1 hour free blocks). I have 1 every monday after 1st period and 1 every thursday.

I also get an additional x-block on mondays at last period and an additonal one on thursdays, including one every other day except friday because I'm so crafty. razz

School starts at 8AM every day, and on Tuesdays, it starts at 9AM.


I love BCDS. smile

Silly thing is, even though we (Canada) have the most snow, we have the least snow days because we're prepared and can move gigantic quantities of snow off the road easily and quickly mad It really has to be a superblizzard (maybe about 3 or 4 feet of snow and up) or a night-long freezing rain attack for school to be cancelled.

We don't get weeks off randomly in February and all, we just get a bunch of fridays off. In fact, we had 4-day weeks for the entire months of April and May.

Im going to be a freshman, but I don't start till the 7th. I was in Algebra II last year, but since its honors and such, you need at least an 85% to pass. I got an 83.6% which sucks, but at least this year will be a lot easier. Man I hate math.

I hate waking up early. School starts at 7:45 for me. At least this year they through in an extra 10 minute break. But it used to be that lunch was an hour. They decided to give the lucky 09's only half of that. YAY! MORE SCHOOL!

Okay, well I'm in an all honors school (one of few in the state), and for some reason we HAVE to skip Trig and go straight to AP. I took Alg I and Geometry in Middle School, and Alg II last year. I'm in Pre Calculus now.

As far as my social studies go, I take nationwide AP courses. I passed the Human Geography AP, so now it's on to World History AP, Art: Sketching AP, AP Biology, and AP Spanish. Life sucks.

ben, i have to say taking that many AP courses it quite ridiculous. I'm glad I'm not in your school.

Between this year and last I've taken 6 AP Courses: US History, Euro, Gov, Calc AB, Literature, Computer Science.

I've managed to get four 5s and two 4s. However, there is no way I could have gotten those high grades if I had taken even one more AP course.

And.. high school is alrite. Once you get your license, it's all good. I have pretty much unrestricted freedom. I usually stay out all night these days and do shit. going down the shore, concerts, parties, girls, drinking, w/e. I'm looking forward to college though. Even more partying. And I get to study the shit I want to!

In my school system we have something called intergrated math. Throughout Pre Intergrated to intergrated 3 we combine algebra with all the other forms of math. Then we have pre Calc, Calc, and Calc 2.

Sorry, it was 3:20, not 1:40. I edited my post.

Also, the length of the school day doesn't affect the capacity of learning.

We're successfully shaved off only 5 minutes per class and a bunch of other minutes off of meetings, etc, including striking out lunch, for half days. 55 minutes to 50 minutes isn't that much of a difference.

School's fine. Only thing is, US schooling is just not appropriate for the US I think.

More strives should be taken for more real-world curriculum.

This includes more projects, more leadership oppurtunities, more ways to express oneself, and more preparation for the future.

As much as I hate homework, that's something that should stay. You need the practice. In the real world, stuff like writing essays and researching is common place. You need to get used to it.

Being able to solve complex algebra isn't as important as understanding how the stock market works.

Comprehension of what a noun is and how you "modify" such a word is insignificant to being able to compose something of great literary accomplishment and make a difference in society.



That's why I like my school. It really encompasses a lot of what "I think" is the ideal school system.

I most always have some sort of project. Weekdays are always busy, not one chance to I have to play a game or watch a bit of tv. Saturdays and a half of Sunday is all I have to actually do something or...start something.

Being President of your class, president of two clubs, representative of a specific department, and being an allschool president is something really worthwhile.

I hate homework. I would not regret losing it. I am a good student, I am not one to slack or anything. But homework is dumb. Your homework should only be studying. I like the less homework deal in highschool, you are more on your own which is great. I just think after 1:30 (1 hour, 30 mins) for each class during the day is enough work. Why need more?

What's this talk about "less homework" is high school?

I have like 3-4 hours of homework each night. Not all of it's due the next day, but I'd might as well do it or else I'd have a lot the next night.

Our school system said "30 minutes of HW for each class, not including studying." So, I have 4 classes per semester (half school year.) That is only 2 hours. But, I have PE for 1/8, and no homework in Latin (she doesn't believe in it.) So, that is at most an hour per day. I can do it all on the bus, because no teacher gives even 30 mintes of HW. It just seems like most teachers at my school are anti-homework.

Do you have block scheduling or something? How many classes do you take? My classes are each 42 minutes and I have 9 periods.

I wish I didn't have as much homework. Last year for a little while I was having around 5 hours per night. However, that wasn't for too long. Usually I had a few hours or so. This year I may have a bunch more. I'm taking 4 AP classes in comparison to none last year (there aren't any AP classes for sophomores).

I'm in one of the only schools in the state that have block scheduling (no C days, though) and it's awesome. Two days to do your assignments, and you endure one class twice as long to be free of it the next day. Its sucks in some ways, though, because you can forget about homework or assignments during your off day, then not be prepared for the next class.

Mine is called block. 4 classes one semester. Then you take the next four the next. Reduces homework a lot, and stress of having too many tests. And you can knock off 2 maths, 2 languages, 2 sciences, whatever in one year. I am taking two maths this year, and a full year of AP Euro. You can double up on 2 subjects in a full year. Unless you are a senior and have a more open schedule. Or you can choose to do electives. This year is my last all serious class year. Junior I am taking tons of video classes at our technology center. That starts at 9:00 AM and you drive yourself, more sleep. Ah yes...

We have a "rotating schedule" which means each day we skip one of our seven classes.

For example, tomorrow is a No-2 day which means we don't go to second period. We go first, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh.

If it's a no-5 day then we do first, second, third, fourth, sixth, seventh. And I think you understand how that works.

So for example, today was a No-1 day and I have math first period so I didn't have to do my math homework yesterday because I had no math today.

It's interesting. razz

I thought it'd be hell to try to remember it, but that was on the first day of school. Second day of school came around and we didn't have 7th period so that was easy, and that's when I understood how it all worked.

Some days I have the first lunch period, some days I have the second. I MUCH rather prefer the days that I have the first lunch period. (No 1-4 days) than the 2nd lunch days (No 5-7).

Now THAT will most likely be confusing for you but that's what I thought..until the third day of school and it was as simple as a noob. razz

Y'all all (including my brother) are just whinin' about nothing. I have it harder with 7 classes a day, and no mercy from teachers to reschedule tests.

Example- Today I had a Calculus AB Pre-AP Test, then a Spanish 3 Pre-AP Test, then an AP World History Test, then an English 2 Pre-AP quiz, then a Chemisty Pre-AP POP QUIZ.
Ay yay yay!

It doesn't suck for me. Plus how many classes did you have in middle school? 7? Because if so then I don't know how middle schools can have so many classes to hand out..we only had 6. So we had all 6 each day. If you had 6, too, then how could you have a rotating schedule from that unless each class was like 90 minutes long.

I had 6 classes including 20 minute advisory meetings. We got out of class everyday at 1:40. Then we had either study hall or our activity for an hour and then we switched off the next hour until 3:40.

On some days, we did have double periods, which was about an hour and 40 minutes long.

A rotating schedule for high school doesn't really work because we have a small school, so not that many teachers. Scheduling would be hectic for plenty of reasons.

Haha, this school year is going by so fast already!

Just think about it, I'm already a month done with school and it's going by so fast!

I get an interim report next Tuesday, so we're already halfway through the first quarter. That means in the short time that past to get to where we are now doubled, we'll be 1/4th done. razz

While we're all sitting here grumbling about school, people are being tormented by Hurricane Katrina is wreaking havoc all across the mainland. Look at us and our petty, petty problems. For shame.

I started today and I have basically the same set up as serpent's school. I have my Intro to Communications class fourth block for the first 9 weeks. Its funny cause they have more stuff than I do (more cameras, more equipment, more editing systems), but the stuff that I have is better. (They're using some 500 dollar canons and maybe one higher end camera, and they're also using Final Cut Pro 2... yes thats right I said 2.) Looks like an easy A for me biggrin . I'm also taking AP US History though, so that class will claim my life. sad

Well any way you look at I still think school sucks. At least the people in new orleans don't have to go to school.

In an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) there is a driving video they were watching where a guy in the movie says "Why don't they look Al? Why don't they look?" And then Crow yelled out "You're deep Ernie"

The joke...... EXPLAINED!
