Hallo:-) Ich habe nächste woche meine Englisch Prüfung und haben ein Text zu high school geschrieben.. Es würde mich echt sehr freuen wenn jemand drauf schauen könnte wo auch gute Englischkenntnisse hat:-) Danke schonmal im vorraus:)
In senior high school, the classes are not only marked with numbers, but the students of the individual classes also have special names, for example the 9th grade is called "freshmen". The 10th grade is called "sophomore", the students from the 11th grade are "juniors" and the 12th grade is called "seniors".
The schools are strict the students have to carry a hall pass during the lessons if they have to go to toilet. Leaving the school grounds during the lessons is strictly controlled. In American schools they have a dress code. The students dress must be neat and clean at all times. They are not allowed to wear too small, too tight, see-trough, or torn clothing. Students who break these rules are send home to change their dress.
The construction of schools is diffrent from school district to school district . In some states the students have to go to high school until they are 18. In other states they are allowed to leave school at the age of 16 or 17, if the parents agree. The traditional construction for high schools is from 9th to 12th grade but the demarcation of middle school and highschool is out of focus.
A high school graduation either ends with the middle maturity (Mittlere Reife), the advanced technical college certificate (Fachhochschulreife) or the A Level (Abitur). It depends on the required classes you have to take to get your current graduation.
Its usual for the students to use a school bus that is only for students.
The use of the school bus is free. The School buses are yellow because of the good visibility on mornings so they can avoid an accident. In high schools, hours are usually from 7.30am to 2pm or 2.30pm. This is divided into six one-hour classes or four 90-minute classes (with a five-minute break between classes) and a 30-minute lunch break. Extra curricular activities and sports are scheduled after school hours. It's common for pupils to take a packed lunch to school, although many pupils go home for lunch when they live close to school. High school students are provided with a locker where they can store their books and other possessions.
American schools are more into extracurricular activities, they are as important as lessons. For example they have american football, soccer, basketball, baseball, swimming, volleyball, athletics and cheerleading they also have clubs like theater club and debatin club.
In Germany we have grades from 1 to 6 in the USA they have letters from A to F. For example A is excellent and F is Failure. In Germany the school day isn't usually in the afternoon but in the USA there is school until 3 pm every day.
There vacation is 3 months in summer while ours are just six weeks. They have still christmas holidays and spring break
