Throughout nearly any Roseville High School student’s career, they have most likely experienced the true horror behind the recently implemented Common Core learning standards. During its tenure, Common Core mandates that students explain every single nuance of their work and answers. Although the creators...

Roseville High School administration recently decided that juniors looking to become a teacher’s assistant or hoping to take a fourth period off have to complete the personal finance course in order to become eligible to do so. This is a huge step in the right direction for a number of reasons,...

A serious tone as people stand huddled in the rain. A stony silence screaming this is not right. Seventeen minutes for 17 lives lost in what was an undeniable tragedy, no matter how someone looks at it. The intended scene of the March 14 student protest against gun violence – with symbolic stillness...

Roseville High School decided to bring back the Sadie Hawkins dance this year, and it is isn't going too well. It's doing so poorly that they actually might cancel it days before it’s set to take place due to lack of ticket sales. I have barely heard anyone talk about Sadie Hawkins. This dance ...

U-turns are illegal on the entirety of Berry Street per city ordinance. This is because of things like what happened today, a four car crash that involved someone making an illegal u-turn, someone driving down the middle turn lane for longer than 200 feet to bypass traffic, which in itself is a violation,...

My preference for sciences with the word “social” in front of them became a defining part of my personality long before I stepped foot on a high school campus, and likely no course or teacher, no matter how extraordinary, could ever change that. However, while attentively taking notes at the February...

In the midst of crisis and tragedy, student safety has become an even greater worry. Building up defensive walls and moving forward with the same unyielding ideas isn’t necessarily enough to keep the real dangers at bay. Clearly, RHS hasn’t quite gotten the memo, because the school plans on adding...

When taking PE, I’m about positive that most people will pass the class as long as they try. It’s an easy class as long as we participate – that’s the main thing teachers care about. But there is a way a student can fail the class even if they put as much effort into each unit and run as possible. I...

EYE OF THE TIGER’S VIEW: Florida shooting should inspire action

February 26, 2018

America is in mourning. For many, the sorrow is not as inhibiting as it once was when news of 13 lost lives at a Colorado high school broke nearly two decades ago. No current RHS students were alive when Columbine took place, but understand its impact because we’ve seen the same horrors repeated on...

Going into high school I had no idea that I would take part in the programs that I am in today. I walked onto campus as a freshman, ignorant that I would serve as an editor, anchor and photographer for Eye of the Tiger. So don’t be afraid to try new things when you register for classes. In middle...

A dream I have dreamed a thousand times is coming to an end. Picture this: I’m 10 years old. My eldest brother returns from his first semester at university touting two gift bags, a smile, and an excited voice, saying, “Look what I got for you two!” My twin sister and I eagerly open the gifts,...
