High School: the last and hardest step to finishing school. I interviewed two high school students to know what’s going to happen when we get to high school. These are my questions:
1. What do you like about High School?
H.S.S. #1- Closer to finishing school.
H.S.S. #2- It’s the time in your life when you discover yourself.
2. Do you feel safe in school?
H.S.S. #1- Yes. If you’re concerned about bullies, they’re nothing to worry about. Don’t let them get to you, because once you do- they’ve won.
H.S.S. #2- Yes, High School is a pretty safe place and there is nothing to worry about as long as you do your own thing.
3. Are you learning a lot in High School?
H.S.S. #1- Yes. High school is an opportunity to expand my perspectives so that I can figure out what I want to do with my life.
H.S.S. #2- Yes. It is preparing me for the life after High School.
4. Do you make a lot of projects in High School?
H.S.S. #1- Yes. Especially in IB, from what I hear.
H.S.S. #2- Yep! They will get harder but it’s just one more thing to overcome in order to prepare for college.
5. How was your transition from Middle School to High School?
H.S.S. #1- It was surprisingly easy. A bit more work than what I was used to, but I got the hang of it after a while.
H.S.S. #2- It was overwhelming at first but everyone goes through it and adjusting to the extra work is pretty easy, put little more effort in what you do and you’ll be ok.
6. Are the homeworks hard?
H.S.S. #1- No, they’re just extra practice to make sure that you got the lesson.
H.S.S. #2- As long as you paid attention in class, it’s alright. Helps you review the lesson.
7. What will you do when you finish High School?
H.S.S. #1- I will definitely go to university but where I’m going and what course I’m taking is still tentative.
H.S.S. #2- I will attend a university, hopefully abroad, and then I will be independently living on my own.
I thanked the two high school students and walked away, knowing what will happen when we get to High School and to know what is possible and what is not.
