PostSubject: My School    Sun Aug 11, 2013 12:10 am

As most of you know I go to a different school. It is still part of the public school system but I will graduate from it with a High School Diploma and a free two year Associates Degree. It is a five year plan, so you are pushing four years worth of high school work and two years worth of college work all into five years. So, there is a 13th grade and these people are called "Super Seniors". It is possible to finish in four years but it is extremely difficult. I may try to do that, I dunno. If you plan to graduate early you have to take summer classes.

We had orientation the other day, it was actually a week but I only went for a day because there was something else I needed to do, and I still have no freaking clue where my classes are. Dear lord, help me. My school is the actual college, it is in no way connected to the normal high school here in my county. With that being said: College= Big= Easily-Lost= Lost-Storm= Confused/Sad-Storm D:

OH! Okay, so, every student at the school (highschool) has to wear lanyards with your photo ID on them.. They decide to take these pictures on your first day or orientation WITHOUT TELLING YOU ahead of time. You have to wear these freakin' lanyards around your neck every single day you're on campus. My picture was absolutely gross. There isn't another word for it, it was just plain gross. And now everyone is going to see it every single day. Great. Also, if you don't wear them you get fined by security and can't resister for classes until you pay the fine. If you get fined repeatedly they just expel you.

Their lanyard system is actually pretty complex. Students have a certain amount of freedoms and considering this is my first year here I have none. *sigh*

Entry Level/White lanyard: Privileges- None
Freshman/Yellow lanyard (2nd Semester): Privileges- Eat Lunch on the Balcony
Sophomores/Green lanyard: Privileges- All of the above+ Library Privileges (without escort)
Juniors/Red lanyard: Privileges- All of the above+ Social of the Month/Fun Days
Seniors/ Black lanyards: Privileges- All of the above+ Student Center Privileges [its a cafe they can eat at], Sign-Out Early*
Super Seniors/Blue lanyard: Privileges- All of the above+ Sign-Out Early**
{*Requires no high school class average below 80 and no college class average below 70
**Must have completed all high school graduation requirements}

You can also go down the chart. Lets say you have a green lanyard and make two Ds. You're only allowed to make one D when you have a green lanyard so your lanyard color would go back down to yellow and you would lose your privileges.

Our school buses go everywhere in the county so most of us have very long bus rides. I get picked up at 7:20 in the morning, not that bad. But I get dropped off at 4:58. ._. I think I'm going to carpool with a friend in the afternoons. xD

I start school next Monday, but I also get out early on May 22nd. I am looking forward to it though, I wonder what it's going to be like. If you have a question just ask, and I'll try to answer it. Razz I think I'm going to join the Debate Club this year. I love debating and I've never been in a school club before, so why not? I get out of class once a week. ;D Are you guys going to any special schools are taking changeling courses you would like to talk about?

What is the name of the school? How much do you have to pay to go there?

Im usually so confused when reading about schools and things like that in the U.S or UK, because you are using the word high school, in norwegian høyskole, and høyskole is college. (Not sure if you understand my explanation?)

So basically when I read about high school I usually think about college, but the high school you are talking about is not college.

It's called the Early College Program, and I'd rather not say the name of my particular school. And that's my point. I don't pay anything. It's free.

As for the second part; what? xD

Its just that the names on the schools, like high school, college, elementary school has weird names in my opinion. In my opinion college should be before high school, because when translating the word high school, it is then the same thing as college in Norway. If you wanted to study in Norway, going to college, but in Norway the word would be høyskole, translated high school. See?
And you go to high school before you start college, right?

Oh, okay. I understand what you're getting at now. But it's like three levels on a tier. Elementary School (which I guess you could think of as "Low School"..), Middle School, High School. The more years you have the higher you go on the tier. College is after high school but is not included on the tier because College is not required. You don't have to go to college but you do have to go to the other three schools.

Well, at my school, we have honors classes, and I am in all of the ones that can be honors (English, Geometry, Earth Science, and World History/Geography). I might try to take Algebra II (the class after Geometry, and important to me) instead of Personal finance (not important to me). So, I may get to do two math classes in one year Razz Plus, I'm taking Gym, French 2, and Technological Drawing/Design. So, that covers all of my classes.
