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...

As a freshman, I wrote an article for Eye of the Tiger that explored how parents and community leaders around the district viewed Roseville High School. Coming into high school, and all throughout middle school to be quite honest, I was told horrible stories of what my future days at RHS would consist...

If you have attended a primetime sports event at Roseville High School lately, you are acquainted with the student section. This spirited mass of orange, white and black rages, rants, yells, boos, cheers, and chants the fan-rite-of-passage chant, “I believe that we will win” at every single home...

Most juniors fill their classes with AP and various rigorous classes. Mine is no exception. Throughout the course of the school year, I am not going to remember every single thing taught to me in each of my AP classes – but that’s not a problem anymore. Teachers started to give out AP prep books...

Now, propaganda is a pretty strong word, so let’s say I very easily get caught up in the AP “buzz” here on campus. The majority of my classes this year are APs. Next year they will take up almost 100% of my schedule. I am pushed by my older classmates and my teachers into enrolling in AP classes....
