Government spending appalls

December 18, 2016 Paige DelMargo 0

As a teenager who has grown up in a blue collar home the least I ask of my government is they spend my family’s tax money responsibly. It is frustrating and painful to watch a country who claims to be strong and built off of the working man have such disregard for those very people who need them most.

Is the school system adapting to society’s needs?

December 1, 2016 Abby Hanson 0

For some students school is a sanctuary, a second home, and from there it is able to be seen as a tool for self development. However every individual has vastly diverse learning styles, personalities and natural skills.

But unbeknownst to those tragic figures, their fateful actions would soon evolve into the most unspeakable mistake of our modern times.

Grades weigh down success

May 10, 2016 Brendan Allen 0

One of the reasons students take AP classes is for the opportunity to receive a weighted grade. Although these grades are attractive on a high school report card, the reality of “grade inflation” is much less appealing. A weighted grade is essentially the means to achieve a higher GPA. That’s it; stripped down to the bare bones, a weighted grade doesn’t amount to much more than class rank.
