In the past, signing up for an AP class meant that I could expect to learn a great array of subjects in focused detail complete with a rigorous course structure. Now in my senior year, my experiences thus far in AP classes have definitely proved to be demanding—and dare I say, tedious,but not at all f...

Gender roles are a huge problem in our society, their appearances are no exception to our campus and they need to be broken. People will often excuse this problem by saying it’s “tradition”, but the world we live in is a world growing more mindful and open about others, regardless of these out...

Before beginning to write this article, I looked up when Suicide Prevention Month was so that I could get accurate information and be prepared to gather quotes, data, or anything else that might help my case. What I found and what completely derailed my train of thought, was that Suicide Prevention M...

Each high school student begins five days of their week with the rubbing of eyes, the blare of an alarm clock, and an internal dismay. It’s a universal experience. Trapped in that state between the real world and dreams, our eyelids often weighed down by chains, we try to survive first period.   ...

One of the very first assignments I was given in my AP Government class was to read a set of provided documents and prepare to use them in a socratic seminar. The topic was not entirely related to American government - not even to Comparative government. It was instead focused around the question, ...

In the heat of the moment, Student Government “planned” a spirit week for the RHS vs WHS game. Not only was it planned very last minute, it was downright inappropriate and disrespectful. It’s quite obvious that there was no plan because Homecoming is in two weeks. It seems that it was plann...

Since my first day of freshman year, I have been handed three restroom passes per term in at least half my classes.When teachers hand them out, they bribe you with the possibility of extra credit. As a person with a relatively small bladder, this is an issue. I go to the restroom at least twice per scho...

From what I have experienced in my (almost) twelve years in academia, the dress code has always been an integral part of school policy—Roseville High School is no exception, considering the dress code remains a recurring issue between students and faculty.

The dress code has been an ongoing issue that has caused contention since middle school. Since then, the dress code has always been promoted as a way to make sure everyone is looking “appropriate”. In reality, this censorship predominantly towards girls is sexist— degrading girls to the basis of...

As far as I (and, I suspect, most high school students) are concerned, nothing beats the feeling of being able to leave the classroom following a long day at school. No matter whether you’re falling asleep in class, cooling off from a run, or dutifully working on an in-class essay, the loud ring o...

This year RHS decided to give freshmen and sophomores Chromebooks to keep throughout the next years they go here. Juniors and Seniors were specifically told that we would not get Chromebooks because the cut off year was the class of 2020 and that we would be able to utilize the existing Chromebook c...
