After the horrific drought that Roseville faced last year, you would think that, even after all the rain we got this winter, people would realize the importance of water conservation. Sadly, it doesn’t look like it. Whenever I see water pooled in someone’s gutter, I get really sad. Right now it...

As a former Integrated Math student, I can understand how strenuous and often confusing the classes can be. I often used to visit my teachers before school in order to fully understand what was happening in class. However, sometimes I needed a better explanation or just more flexibility after school...

As you advance in high school and juggle an increasing volume of commitments, you must allot your time wisely – and use it with purpose. As much of a time as any, high school is meant for considering your priorities. And this debate constantly plays out from the big decisions – ‘What would I...

It’s the beginning of the formation of superteams in California high school athletics. The California Interscholastic Federation’s majority decision to allow student-athletes to transfer to high schools for athletically-motivated purposes is a recipe for disaster. Transfer athletes no longer have...

I don’t need my education squandered to understand that the book is about being taken advantage of and relinquishing my rights. I also don’t need to contract the Black Plague when in AP European History to comprehend that it was disgusting and killed thousands of people. I’m here to learn, not...

Administration’s steps toward a safer campus may birth skepticism from students concerned about losing privacy. In reality, though, admin is working for students, not against them. In considering campus surveillance cameras, introducing an online bullying report system and reinforcing the “run, hide,...

Taking an SAT prep class offered by Kaplan or your high school is something that is almost universally recommended. Recently, I took my second SAT after completing a Kaplan course that took six hours every weekend to complete. After the class, I was only able to improve my score by 20 points overall,...

Roseville High School recently upgraded the school’s web filter in an effort to increase bandwidth. The web filter is so also much stricter than the previous filter, accidentally blocking many appropriate websites such as the New York Times, Vox, CNN, and for a short while, YouTube. The filter largely...

I was already wary of the bad music selection my poor ears would have to go through when I heard talk of a DJ-less prom. I had flashbacks to the days of Nickelback and Kidz Bop and worried about how much I would genuinely enjoy my Prom. As an avid fan of music I’ve learned to enjoy most genres of...

As my senior year begins to wind down, I have come to the unfortunate realization that time really does fly – and man does it fly quickly. Most people don’t realize that they will never be able to fully value the high school experience until it is all over, and by then it’s too late. This is...

You guys, we did it. We finished 80 percent of our high school career, we finished college applications, we finished scholarship applications and most of us know where we will be next fall. Next year it’s a new school with new faces. It is a little scary, don’t you think? Knowing you all for these...

Last Friday, I sat down in the Hyatt Regional ballroom, competing against the top minds in California for Academic Decathlon. I had to stop and take it all in: I almost didn’t even join the AcaDeca team. I had seen it as just another way to spend time after school, and perhaps even a waste of time. It...
