As a wide-eyed freshman, new to the confusing world of high school and its many intricacies, I knew the date of the spirit rally and football game weeks before it was scheduled to happen – despite never before having any interest in school spirit or football. This is because, arguably, nothing is more...

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...

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...

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...
