  In America, after middle school comes high school, which includes grades 9 through 12. Students are required to take certain subjects like English, social studies, math, science, and physical education. In addition, they choose among elective subjects to complete their high school education. Electives include subjects in technology, music, art, and foreign languages.
       Each student in the school has their own locker for books and personal items. This convenience saves students from carrying textbooks, and allows students a small space they can decorate with posters and favorite objects.
       Cheating in any form is strictly prohibited in American schools. And in fact, high school students usually don’t cheat. A student caught in plagiarism, forgery, or copying another student faces severe discipline, even expulsion.
School Activities
       Each school holds certain yearly activities for the entire school body, such as homecoming, prom night, holiday celebrations, etc.
       Homecoming is celebrated each fall, usually on a weekend, and events leading up to it may last all week. While homecoming is celebrated differently at each school, it usually includes a parade and the crowning of the Homecoming King and Queen, and ends with a football game and school dance.
      The prom is a formal dance for students in grades 11 and 12, and is generally anticipated as the most important social event of the school year. It can also be a time of anxiety, as boys have to work up the courage to ask a date to the prom, and girls hope the right boy invites them. These couples dress in formal clothes — girls in long gowns, boys in suits. Some students even arrange a limousine and driver for their group of friends to arrive in style! At the prom, students dance, have snacks and drinks, and chat. Prom usually ends with a Prom King and Queen being announced and crowned on stage before an envious audience.
        Besides hosting events for holidays such as the Fourth of July and Halloween, individual high schools often have their own special events. One day might be “Inside Out/Backwards Day,” where students and teachers should wear their clothes reversed all day, perhaps walk and speak backwards, and even go to classes in opposite order. And some schools hold contests where, if certain academic goals are met, the principal will kiss a pig, shave his mustache, or dress as a woman for the day.
Sports
        Most high schools have at least one sports team that competes in local events, and all students are encouraged to be involved in athletics. Schools often offer football, baseball and softball, basketball, volleyball, tennis, and soccer. Some may even have sports like golf, swimming, gymnastics and cross-country skiing.
Jobs

        Many high school students have part-time jobs by the age of 15 or 16, some even earlier. Their first jobs are often babysitting or cutting lawns, but later they will likely get a job at a fast-food restaurant, video store, or clothing shop.
Driving
        Sixteen years old is legal driving age in most states, and students usually want to own a car as soon as they can. Some parents allow their children to drive a family vehicle, and may even buy a car as a graduation present. Others prefer that their sons and daughters earn enough to purchase a used vehicle. Regardless, many teenagers feel it’s a necessity to own a car, and will do whatever it takes to be able to drive.|上海留学中介 | 南京留学中介 | 杭州留学中介 | 宁波留学中介 | 武汉留学中介 | 合肥留学中介 | 重庆留学中介 | 成都留学中介
