College and high school have the best memories in the minds of many. It is the time when you make the best and worst situations in life. It has become a well known fact, that college is far more better than high school. Some people mistake college as a simple step above high school, but an evaluation of the two study publishes that are indeed numerous differences between the two. As we go on in life we face many challenges and new situations that we deal with. A new situation that most people deal with is college and all the changes that come along with it. What many people don’t realize is that high school, in many ways, is similar and different from college. A very important part of life is education. In order to acquire a satisfying education, one should complete high school prior to college.
College and high school have two different levels of education, both are trying to further students knowledge. They are both places of education that help students learn more and help them achieve what they want in life and what they want to become. High school is required and a free place of learning, while college is optional and expensive. As a freshman in highschool you find yourself growing at a hastened rate. There is much more freedom compared to middle school.
High school is a very organized environment. You become reliant on your teachers and other classmates to guide you through all four years. In college, you are self-reliant and manage your own time and scheduled. Time management is big because you can be lazy and not take time to do work or you can take every moment to accomplish things you need to do throughout the day. A high school student needs to arrange his or her time to modulate their study habits to ensure better results. To manage your time is a learned experience in high school and carried along in college. Your time management skills are put to test in college. At the high school level there are punishments, such as after school detention(ASD) or in school suspension(ISS) or an even worse scenario, out of school suspension(OSS). These punishments occur when an assignment is not complete or the rules are broken.
In College professors don’t give any strikes or warnings. Professors give out the work and it’s up to us students to complete the task or fail. I would say college professors and more lenient with small things such as bringing food into the workplace. At the highschool level there are a decent amount of rules and ordinance to pertain to. Dress code being a main factor along with no food or drinks allowed in the workplace. Including going off campus for lunch or going to the restroom with no type of pass. In duration of college there isn’t really a strict dress code. Many professors allow food or drink in the workplace and as students we are allowed to leave the room without a hall pass or without notice of the instructor.
But in comparison of the two, they share some of the same rules and ordinances. They both follow the endangerment codes when those types of sequence of events partake. Classes in high school are well put together and defined by the mandatory credits for graduation. Students share the same classes that are based on the grade level they are in. Graduating high school is an accomplishment, and not the easiest task. It sucks having to spend eight hours a day in the same building, going from class to class, completing daily and weekly assignments from subjects that aren’t always interesting. Since the assignments in college are harder it may take a long process of time to complete, while in high school it takes a shorter amount of time to complete tasks. You depend on your teachers for constant reminder for completion of task.
Versus in college, your instructor gives a small lecture. Courses are chosen by the student based on their future career plan. At the high school and college level, grades are influenced by the achievement or failure of courses. A person has to pay for the education in college. College is more expensive because of tuition, living expenses, and books. Based on research tuition can from a low amount to a high amount of money. Semester tuition ranges from four-thousand to five-thousand dollars and for the yearly tuition it ranges from eight-thousand to twelve thousand dollars.
