In elementary school, there was nothing more exciting than the opportunity to chew gum on a campus that had banned its presence entirely. If you were graced with the pleasure, your teacher had snuck in a couple packs to class to compensate for the even stricter rules that were about to follow. All of...

Four years ago, Roseville High school experienced its last Every 15 Minutes assembly. In Every 15 Minutes roughly a dozen seniors would be pulled out of class to theoretically represent one student dying every 15 minutes from drunk driving. A teacher would then read their obituary to the class, someone...

Currently I am a junior at RHS and as I’ve been progressing through my classes since freshman year, I’ve noticed something that keeps occuring. There is a lot of persuasion to get students to take AP classes so they can try to get into great colleges. There are flyers, people visiting from different...

Imagine this: you’re in your third period class, the bell is about to ring for lunch and you are excited to get in line early and get your lunch. Well think again. In reality, the bell rings and you meander your way through the crowd of people in the art wing. You are near the amphitheater in...

As the spring term continues, students have to manage a substantial homework load, especially if these students are in an AP class and extracurriculars like sports as well. The result: students are having to sacrifice sleep in order to maintain a good grade in a class. Medical professionals say that...

Personal finance’s potential wasted

Personal finance’s potential wasted

March 25, 2019

The personal finance course is a waste of time. Yup, one of the only things in school that can try to prepare us for life after high school is a waste of time. Schools should take responsibility in teaching their students the majority or all of the information within the personal finance course, otherwise...

Coming into High school as a freshman, I thought it was going to be the hardest four years of my life. I was never so wrong. High school is nothing like the movies or the many TV shows that have 25 year olds playing 16 to 18 year olds. There are no happy endings or situations where things work out in...

It’s Christmas in March for seniors: gifts in the form of college acceptance letters flood mailboxes... and school, for seniors, is out. Even though an entire quarter of the 2018-2019 school year remains, as seniors begin to land in their future academic homes, motivation and desire to perform in...

Like many others, I was shocked when I heard our principal was leaving, devastated even. It’s hard to think about walking across the stage next year and graduating without him being there. I can only imagine how seniors this year must feel. Every cloud has its silver lining though and luckily we,...

We have all seen those teen movies and shows in which during lunch students are able to leave and go get food off campus. So why can’t that be a reality? I was pondering this question when my mother actually brought this up to me and how when she was in high school, she was able to drive to a fast...

My four years of being in high school have been the most vital to my life. Most people tell you that high school was the worst time of their life and most of the time they’re referring to the academic work - from the SAT’s to the AP’s, to the ACT’s, to all of those many college application...

Around the world, California is the poster image of ‘sunny weather,’ but this time of year is when winter drags along and spring approaches, students around RHS face unpredictable and sporadic weather on a constant basis. Roseville High School’s expansive campus layout faces a number of obstacles...
