If someone were to observe an average day at Roseville High School, they’d see barely-awake students muddle their way through a groggy first period and an unproductive session of ROAR before starting their second period class. And then they’d see students stand up like zombies to a meaningless m...

An administrator stopped a student in the halls for a routine dress code. Another student walking by made an explicit comment about the dress code. The administrator asked the student to return and for her name, she refused, or defied, both of these commands. The administrator summoned the youth s...

I have seen many times that teachers will grade students’ work based on what they have done in the past. For example, if a kid gets a good grade on an essay or a test, teachers almost automatically assumes that this student will produce a great essay again. Teachers won’t read the essay as criticall...

I have few problems with Roseville High School, but recently some of these few came to my attention and, simply put, make me mad: collective punishment, and group projects with apathetic people. First things first – I am a really good student; I don’t get anything less than a B, I never talk back ...

Priority period, “ROAR period,” “intervention period” is now in its sixth week at Roseville High School. At the conceptual level last year, some loved it and others hated it. In its rollout first week, some loved it and others hated it. Now, the divided consensus remains. The two sides aren’t...

The value of an AP class is usually approached one of two ways by most students: completion that would prepare you for college classes, or a factoid-based class accompanied with an overwhelming amount of workload to prepare you for one exam that could be either six months away or the next week.

A fresh Student Government dynamic brought, among other changes, the return of elements from the traditional dance court system. The return comes less than a year after a more fluid system replaced Roseville High School’s years-old setup. This year, dance courts will again consist of five princes,...

If you are a student athlete, you have probably heard a coach say that academics are more important than sports. Does the statement “grades always come before sports” sound familiar? For the most part, coaches maintain this philosophy and will act accordingly. But, in some cases, coaches forge...

As a four-year AVID student with two siblings of the same title, I consider myself an avid AVID extraordinaire. I can’t speak for my siblings, but in my four years I have seen some students who seem to enjoy it and some students who loath it. My believe that the program has limited its own potential...
