Do high school students really see high school as a necessary part of their development as a person or do they feel like it is a waste of time? For many people is a scary, overwhelming, and unnecessary part of their lives. For others it is a fun and interesting way to make friends and live out the last years of being a kid.

Some students wonder why they spend four long years learning about things like the quadratic formula and iambic pentameter but, spend no time learning things that will actually matter like paying bills. When asked if high school has prepared him for the real world sophomore Ryan Ostrander responded with

“I don’t think it has at all, I don’t know how to pay taxes, drive, or raise a family.”

On the other hand some people really like high school and see it as a way to interact with people and have fun. When Sophomore Nick Gorney was asked if he thinks high school i necessary he said

“I think high school is necessary because you learn a lot of important life lessons like motivation and responsibility.

Gorney was also questioned on what he liked better high school or middle school, he said

“I believe that middle school was more enjoyable because you didn’t have as much homework or responsibility.”

High school is viewed by many children as a place where everyone is happy and every day is a fun, nice day. But, what a lot of those children come to realize is that their visions were wrong. Sophomore Grace Mora mentioned,

“I thought it was going to be like High School Musical and that it would be easy and everyone would be happy.”

When sophomore Josh Lucio was asked if he liked high school he said

“ I don’t think that high school is a fun time because the atmosphere in the high school sucks.”
High school will be different for everyone because the people you chose to hang out with will have a large impact on the experience as a whole. It will always have mixed reviews among teens because of the stressful atmosphere and zoo like environments.
