The high school experience: a personal reflection.


Filled with growth and life lessons, the high school experience has been a journey worth the climb.

Anna Waldron , Editor May 4, 2022

High school is arguably the most transformative time of a person’s life. My own experience has been filled with more memories, laughter, stress, and — most importantly, growth — than I ever could have anticipated when I began. 

The lessons I have learned about myself, about others, and about the world in the last four years have shaped who I am today, and that person is far from the naive 14-year-old girl who walked through those glass doors of La Salle nearly four years ago. I was oblivious to the overwhelming emotional distress that I would feel when I started high school. 

In some ways, it feels like an everyday battle. 

As a freshman, the struggle began with adjusting to what felt like a whole new world. I was desperately trying to make friends, considering I had only one. I never knew what it was like to feel alone in a school with so many people. I felt like I had to act a certain way or be a certain person in order to maintain a basic conversation with people in my classes or on my soccer team. 

Every day, my head was filled with an overwhelming concern about how I could manage to make myself look like someone with more friends than I actually had at the time. 

I remember constantly thinking, “I’ll start enjoying this at some point, right?” 

The truth is, I did. 

To anyone who is feeling the way I once felt, please know that those feelings do go away. By the end of my freshman year and into the next, I enjoyed myself. School wasn’t particularly challenging, and I was spending my weekends having fun with my friends and going to basketball games and sleepovers. I had finally created a routine and felt mostly content with my life, aside from daunting thoughts in my head telling me it was all a lie.

I think that’s something that all teenagers deal with. It comes with the age, the questions, “do my friends actually like me?” or “am I enough?” — “do people worry about me or have I tricked myself into thinking they do?” 

I continued to move throughout my sophomore year feeling a new level of comfort with my life. Then, the pandemic hit. 

The original two weeks of quarantine turned into two months, and then two years. The predictable high school experience I had become accustomed to was no longer my reality, and instead, high school turned into an atypical rollercoaster of isolation from all the essential parts of the experience. 

To say it was hard would be an understatement, but after the initial forced adjustment to a remote life, I was forced to be content without relying on others.

Without having to fear other people’s judgments of me or having to conceal myself in social situations to appear more “acceptable,” I gained independence and confidence within myself that I didn’t know existed.

Then finally — after over a year — the long-awaited return to school arrived. 

I rejoiced in my ability to thrive academically again and I was so relieved to feel like I was really learning. I reconnected with my friends, ate lunch outside, took finals, and then — after a blur of two months — the year ended. My junior year flew by like no other. 

When senior year rolled around, I felt out of place. I couldn’t imagine a world where I belonged to the oldest class at the school. In the beginning, it was odd getting used to, but after a few weeks, it was nothing but a thrill as I planned what the next weekend alongside my friends would hold. 

My friendships were flourishing and I was becoming closer and closer with people I had never really gotten to know. 

Unlike the three years prior, my senior year has felt like a stereotypical high school experience, and I could not be more grateful for it. 

I always thought of myself as someone who was above enjoying things like attending soccer games, getting ready for homecoming with my friends, singing karaoke in someone’s basement, or going to a trampoline park for an 18-year-old’s birthday party. 

The truth is, I’m not. 

I regret that I spent so long depriving myself of the things I love in order to fit a narrative that I created for myself. 

I love that I will graduate high school happier and more fulfilled than I ever felt during my other three years here. It feels like everything has finally come full circle, after all these years of feeling so alone. 

So yes, it was transformative. I am finally content with the person I have become and the life I have chosen to lead. I wouldn’t be the same without La Salle and I wouldn’t be the same without the people I’ve gotten to know here. 

I know that I will look back on my high school experience here, not feeling critical of the insecurities I have felt, but feeling grateful for the memories and lessons that came regardless of them.

Philosopher Marshall McLuhan characterized technological advancements as extensions and amputations. For example, before television, there was the radio, before radio, there was print, and before print, there was word of mouth. When we made the move from radio to television, we gained visuals but in turn required users to dedicate two senses to the medium of television.

High School Reflection Essay

Middle school reflection essay.

8th grade was great I wasn’t the youngest, I was in the oldest grade. At this point I had middle school perfectly handled. Going to high school and being a freshman is terrifying you're the smallest you don’t know what a seminar B is and when you go to it. I loved middle school. I love high school; the only reason that I love it is because I have middle school to reflect off of. I have those experiences to help me have more. I use middle school to reflect and learn from everything that I did. I’m doing well in high school so far only because I have I have past experiences so that I can make choices that best benefit me now. Arnold Spirit from The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian and the Narrator from “The Bass, The River and Sheila Mant” are reflective because they both took action while being unique making it much harder than necessary. At the end of it they learned a valuable lesson and made the best decision for themselves.

My Junior Year In High School

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths,” (Walt Disney). The overview of my Junior year in high school was, I believe, the best school year so far both in academic and my personal achievements. As a person I had a major growth, I become more active in school in which was a huge step for me, and academically, well I’ve never seen so many A’s since Freshmen year, well that is if I examine only second semester but overall I felt that my grades were better than last year. This year I became a person who is more open-minded, one who sees the outside world, my mind has opened a door which helped me find the inner me that was stuck in for the past 2 years of high school like if I were a bud that has finally opened. I shockley impressed at myself, willing to accept any new challenges this year which truly helped me become a better person in education and personally.

8th Grade Reflection Essay

I was not a huge fan of this book, it was really hard to understand what was going on do to it thick dialect. The book is written in first person, but the choice of words and dialect created a dense style that made it hard to read and understand what is going on through the book. I had to reread some of the area to understand what the character was saying. Regards the the dialec the book is good to read and understand about black history. Because of the length, style and choice theme; I feel this book will be best for students who are in 8th grade or in highschool.

Reflection Essay

    Over the course of this semester, I can gradually see a change in my writing process. I have been able to think about the topic, I am given and write a well thought out essay. However, I am not the best in the essay department, I have been meeting with my teachers, peers editing my papers in order to obtain their sense of the essay I’ve written. In previous years, I would write essays and think they were well developed, but that wasn’t the case. As a writer, I never really knew how to edit my own work but with time I have been able to change that. I have been able to read the text in

Coming into Drexel this year, a necessity, I learned was to have a clear understanding of the mechanics for literature composition. I learned that it would mature my writing to a higher level of thinking. This is seen as past experiences in my writing through high school English teacher feedback indicated my writing to be full of flaws. I often would receive feedback on my writing being awkwardly worded or lacking fluidity. The one valuable skill I learned from English 101,102 and 103 was the idea that exposure to different readings, formulas and informal writings give practice, for me to find my own voice in writing.

Organization is one specific tool I have used throughout my life consistently that has helped me become who I am today. When I was a little kid, my mother use to say, “ okay, now help me clean up.” This stuck with me and as years went by, I eventually did so without her asking. I had a place for all of my things. If it wasn’t there when I went to look for it, I became anxious. Point is, at a very young age, I discovered the need for things around me to be organized and tidy. Throughout the course of one’s life, we adapt many practices that later shape who we are. These practices are called literate repurposing. While gathering my research, I came across many unique findings. This character trait has never diminished, and I've repurposed my organizational skills all throughout my life.

I have participated in Acts of Random Kindness club, whose purpose has been to spread positivity in the school environment. High school students encounter a variety of emotions such as anxiety, stress, and drama. Hence, we have done uplifting projects such as putting nice complements inside books. We have also reached out to teachers by delivering messages of appreciation to their mailboxes. Furthermore, I have partaken in Colts for Animals, whose motive was to spread student awareness in regards to animal cruelty. We invited guest a few times speakers to talk about issues relating to animal abuse. Moreover, as a member of Garden club, I have helped in beautifying our campus from watering plants to picking out the weeds to digging up for new plants.

As i a still learning i am/did have trouble with this. This time I am going to connect it into one section(I will try and split them up but they may run together)

Not many people attribute hardship to the actuality that they are the initial root of the issue. In my instance, a speech disorder restricted my ability to effectively communicate; however, a subconscious attribution lead me to limit my social interaction. My failure to extort the idea of structured redevelopment immobilized the outcome of effective action.

I learned a lot in my life like math, history, fitness, health, etc. Though I always had one curriculum that catch my interest than others. That subject would be english as the one that caught my eye as one might say. I was always fansticated with the certain techniques and skills you can learn from it. The expressiveness that people can learn from that subject and put what they learn into something big like for example writing an play, movie, skits, etc is truly something special. So as young adult I find myself willing to learn these intrestic skills that many talented writers have master and I have belief that my techniques will be sharpen to mastery. In english 102 I can proudly say that those beliefs did happen as the class went further through days and weeks so did my progression as a researcher and writer that in factly impact my future career. I own to the teacher and support programs in the school that provided me this which I couldn’t thrive without.

One aim I remember well is “Why do we prefer to see segregation as natural, or unplanned?” as I was the one who helped pick it. You gave me a choice between this question and “do we prefer to see segregation as natural, or unnatural?” (something like that), and I picked the former because I knew it better prompted the way you like to guide your lessons. I didn’t think you wanted a debate on whether segregation is planned or not, but rather a discuss on how calculated the racism in our nation is. When you asked the class about the aim, I remember there being silence. Even I was uncomfortable answering because Americans have a tendency to not want to accept their faults. It’s in our textbooks, our curriculum, and our daily lives. Every single history teacher I’ve ever had remained very neutral to the information they taught (which I don’t blame them for most teachers are expected to not share opinions), but you did not care and I loved that!! I feel like I never had the weight of how cruel and deliberate our history of racism was really drop on me until I was in your class. Americans passed segregation off as a natural process because we knew it was wrong, and did nothing about it, but we did not want to feel bad about ourselves and accept what a backwards society we created. It’s such a simple concept, but for some reason, it didn’t hit me hard until then.

When working at Wade King in Mr. Denton's fourth grade classroom, I found that the students were very excited to have Nicole and me as guest teachers for their math hour. I had never worked with fourth grade students before, so their warm and inviting attitudes help calm my nerves. The lessons went well and I was surprised by some of the students' connections that they had made throughout our lessons. For example, there were several students that would bring up things that we hadn't talked about yet, but we were going to at the end of the lesson. Like the connection that certain fractions were larger than other fractions and this connection tied into the end of the lesson where we would place fractions on a number line by smallest to largest. It was so exciting to see students making these connections on their own and understanding the content that was being taught. I also felt like I was able to support the students very well when they had questions or difficulty with the lesson. I must admit, I was intimidated by the new fancy school and the fact that the students knew Chinese! Also, never having worked with fourth graders before, I didn't know what to expect or if I was truly prepared. Then we began teaching and the students had questions that I could confidently answer! Everything that I had learned paid off and it was such a good feeling to be able to support students learning. Something else that went well was teaching to Bridges. Bridges is so easy to follow and the

Upon completing my first semester of college, I would say that the moment I will most likely remember most is the preparation of my Portfolio for my Africana Studies 115 APPR University Writing class. While working on the assignment, reviewing and organizing each iteration along with the revisions to each and every exercise within the selected progression, I noticed the high level of critical thinking that I applied to my work throughout the semester. This level of critical thinking was something I could not see myself doing prior to my college experience. Another highlighted memory will be the fact that I developed a greater degree of camaraderie with my classmates. Usually, interactions with other individuals in a class, with whom I am not well acquainted, produced very poor results.

Giving back to the community is a passion of mine. The most rewarding experiences in my life have been doing what I can, to help others. As an Education major, helping children in the community is important to me, and reflected in my volunteer work. I have volunteered in several classrooms over the past two years in partnership with Junior Achievement. Volunteering with Junior Achievement allowed me to teach second grade students about the community they live in, the differences they can make in the community, and empowering students to become successful citizens who make a positive impact in the community. I have also volunteered with SA Reads, tutoring four students in reading in high-poverty schools in San Antonio. When tutoring, I use Science-Based Reading Instruction to improve literacy components. Tutoring students with SA Reads allows me to directly impact the lives of children in the community by tutoring them in reading each week, improving their reading skills, and helping students who would otherwise fall behind, succeed. Other ways in which I have impacted the community in a positive way is by regularly donating platelets at the South Texas Blood and Tissue Center, donating books to children nominated for an angel tree, volunteering at SWISD Special Olympics, Volunteering with Voices for Children, Picking up litter in a neighborhood, volunteering at the Celtic games and music festival cultural event at the kids’ corner, raising awareness of human trafficking

Practicums are a time to put into practice what we as pre-service teachers have learnt in theory. This experience can be challenging and rewarding all at the same time as it makes a pre-service teacher face both their strengths and challenges as an individual and an educator. Lesson planning can be time-consuming during the hours when one is not teaching but makes the teaching time run more smoothly. There are standards that graduate teachers need to adhere to and relationships with mentors, children, families and colleagues to establish all in such a short time.

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 wasn't mugged, no one tried to sell me mind altering drugs, and I actually made it through break time at the cafe. Life at school became easier as I came to meet people and actually know my way around the halls. Over four years I have been here I have developed friendships with many of the faculty as well as kids my own age. Some of these relationships were with teachers while others were with other staff members. When people begin their adventure through high school, their journey begins with an aura of uncertainness. No one knows quite what to expect, so they prepare by expecting the unexpected. I can still remember my first day of high school. I awoke early and forced down breakfast trying to subside the fluttering of butterflies in my stomach. When I arrived at school I was surprised by both the size of the school and the size of the students. The seniors were so big! To say that I was intimidated is an understatement. For the first time in my life I was unsure of who I was and who I was going to turn out to be. Previous to entering high school I had heard all of these rumors about hazing and what not and I was uneasy at the prospect of being openly ridiculed. As the year progressed my uneasiness began to fade. I began to meet new people and try new things. I Show More

High School Reflection Essay: Similar to the case with all articles, your reflection paper should start inside a presentation that contains both a snare and a postulation proclamation. The reason behind having a ‘snare’ is to command the notice of your crowd or peruser from the earliest starting point.

A reflection paper is a few page exposition that allows you to share your contemplations on an encounter, like an understanding task or a class, and apply what you’ve figured out how to your life and instruction. In contrast to most papers, they’re moderately casual, zeroing in on your responses to the experience and how you anticipate applying your new information. Association, the solidarity of thoughts, and the utilization of clear models are all keys to making an effective reflection exposition.

My High School Experience Essay

High school has been an exceptionally fascinating encounter for me. It has certainly had its highs and lows and many befuddling encounters in the middle. In general, I feel like I have been prepared for school, yet in addition life all in all. High school has shown me numerous things, both scholastically and inwardly. It has uncovered and uncovered my genuine nature, both great and terrible, and thus, has constructed numerous parts of my person. My encounters at Good Shepherd High school and Good Shepherd Learning Center have formed me into the individual that I am today.

From both of these schools, I have taken in a ton about my own characteristics, like my qualities and shortcomings, and my work propensities and perspectives. One of the main things that I needed to learn at Good ShepherdHigh school, which comprised of my green bean and sophomore years, was a liability. I understood that after centre school, my instructors just had such a lot of responsibility for my grades and even activities.

Regardless of whether I turned in my schoolwork or got a passing mark in the general class all relied on me. My instructors were as of now not considered liable for whether I comprehended the illustrations or even displayed for their group. I figured out how to step up to the plate on the off chance that I didn’t get something and I reliably talked with my instructors about an arrangement that would assist me with prevailing in their group.

Luckily, my functioning propensities were never an issue for me. I was in every case exceptionally focused and finished the entirety of my schoolwork, classwork, and undertakings on schedule. However, when it came to working with others, issues emerged. I needed to figure out how to be modest myself and become responsive to the thoughts and assessments of people around me. I could presently don’t keep on talking over others and negligence their considerations. To work in a gathering effectively, I understood that I must show restraint, adaptability, and deferential. Getting positive confidence and self-esteem was consistently quite difficult for me. It was difficult for me to face troublesome difficulties with the mentality of “I can do it,” since all that I could see was whatever was directly before me. At the point when I got a handle on the significance of confidence and being sure of what I was unable to see or comprehend, I had quite a lot more certainty and security in myself and in my future.

All through every one of my years in High school, as I took all of the necessary A-G classes, I learned numerous things. I found out with regards to correspondence, in English, yet Spanish also. I figured out how to hold a discussion with a Spanish-talking individual and I likewise figured out how to compose and peruse in the language. In both English and Spanish, I figured out how to impart my contemplations, thoughts and data in a formal and smooth structure. I acquired a lot of my composing abilities from the books, books, and brief tales that I read.

My degree of perusing cognizance improved as I figured out how to comprehend decipher, and like the composed data in writing, exposition, and different records. Generally speaking, I figured out how to develop significance from a wide range of materials. Tuning in and talking were additionally vital things that I needed to learn. Through tuning in, I figured out how to get, decipher, and measure verbal messages and different types of correspondence. As far as speaking, I figured out how to put together my musings and convey my thoughts, information and data through familiar discourse. Practically these abilities I had the option to learn inside my study halls and other scholastic settings. To the extent different subjects in school, for example, history, sociologies, topography, actual wellbeing, artistic expression, and science, I gained from the different courses that I took at both Good ShepherdHigh School and Good Shepherd Learning Center.

Thinking and thinking abilities were additionally something that must be created throughout my years inside High school. Despite the fact that this is a roundabout language, I needed to figure out how to learn. I needed to figure out how to utilize productive learning methods that turned out best for me. I understood that the way that I learned was not generally the way that my instructors expected or even needed me to learn. I needed to discover better approaches for applying my insight and abilities. Despite the fact that I have consistently been a genuinely innovative individual, in coming to Good Shepherd Learning Center, I certainly figured out how to consider some fresh possibilities.

Rather than the conventional composition, activities, and strategies for educating and learning, I have conceded the opportunity to communicate my thoughts and my thoughts in an altogether new way. My imaginative reasoning has extended in its beginnings and is presently not oppressed by the traditional hindrances. Dynamic, critical thinking, frameworks thinking and thinking all run connected at the hip. I have taken in these through the two internal and external homeroom encounters all through High school. I have figured out how to perceive issues, comprehend the variety in climate/society, use rationale, and eventually reaching determinations that lead to successful and mindful choices.

Since I’ve been at Good Shepherd Learning Center, I have taken in a ton about innovation and have acquired a lot more prominent consciousness of it. I currently apply innovation to various parts of my life including scholastics, individual, and sports. I’m presently ready to pick carefully between various sorts of innovation and am ready to recognize the various alternatives that I have. I additionally have a greatly improved comprehension of the wide assortment of projects that are open to me and I am ready to utilize them with a fundamental comprehension of how they work.

My High school experience has been an extremely difficult and invigorating 4 years. I have learned numerous things that will help me throughout everyday life and I feel certain that I am prepared for whatever obstruction I might confront. High school has characterized, moulded my person, and assisted me with developing into the young lady that I am today.

Final Reflection

“Without struggle there’s no progress” was the quote I looked up to through out my high school experience. As I woke up every morning I hated the fact that I had to go to Warren Easton and feel stressed about it. The only positive aspects I thought about were “you have to graduate, and prove society wrong”. From the first day I stepped into the halls of Warren Easton, I felt over worked, but very confident. The whole idea of being in high school was great, but the work that sat in my face was not.

But hey, that’s high school right? At Warren Easton I had so many incredible, emotional, enjoyable, and most outrageous memories while being a student at Warren Easton. Everyday on the announcements I had to be attentive to my principle, Mrs. Medley, badger my peers about uniforms, being on time, and respecting others. If it wasn’t for Mrs. Medley and administration being there to harass us everyday of the year I wouldn’t have learned responsibilities, cause in reality it would have been much more worst.

One solution that I will always remember from over the years of high school was how lazy I was. Being lazy from my freshman to junior year really took a toll on me once I became a senior. I was always so stressed out and overwhelmed by the work because I had to force myself to get the work done, and on time. Throughout my hectic high school years I have also grown a lot personally and socially.

As a freshman I was one of the shy people that sat in the back of the library everyday. I didn’t communicate much sense I didn’t know anyone that well, but now that I am a senior I am far from shy. High school has showed me that you have to keep positive people around you no matter what because they’ll always be somebody negative around that wants to bring you down mentally telling you can’t, or you’ll never succeed. Everything that I’ve been told positively I will take it into consideration and apply it to my life. Moreover, the most interacting and fun I had from my junior to senior year for being in the allied health program with Nurse Ferrand. In Allied health we learned about the different fields that involved medicine, interacting with patients, needles, and even drawing blood. In my senior year I got the chance to be enrolled into a nursing program at NANA (nursing assistant network association). In this program we became certified in CNA (certified nursing assistant), Phlebotomy (blood letting or introduce fluid), and even EKG Technician (performing diagnostic tests to access the heart rhythm and rate in patients). What I like most about this program is that I will have a good job while I am in college. This program also showed me responsibility and dedication. I can honestly say the classes weren’t easy, but I managed to get my schoolwork, and nursing work done and complete on time. In conclusion, I can honestly say that high school was like a roller coaster. I’ve learned so much in these short four years, and I’m truly going to miss it dearly. I will take everything that I’ve learned and apply it to my life after I graduate. Of course I still have plenty to learn, but I feel like I have accomplished one of my first biggest accomplishments in my life. But ill always remember, “Without struggle there’s no progress”.
