Our Arizona Public Online High School Students Are Smart!
Eat healthier, lose weight, quit this, or start that…..these are all typical New Year’s resolutions we hear at this time of year. It is the season of resolutions and fresh starts! I had the opportunity to sit down with some of our Arizona public online high school students at Hope High School Online to see what kinds of resolutions or goals they have for 2018! We think Hope High School Online are pretty smart with what they came up with! Read more about our Arizona public online school students to find out how they succeed!
2017 Student Reflections of 2017 Highlights at Hope High School Online
When Hope High School Online students were reflecting on 2017, they were thinking of their favorite parts of the year! I was excited when one student stated that one of her favorite parts of last year was the Agile Student Leadership Conference they attended with Hope High School Online. Our Arizona public online high school students were able to interact with professionals at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona while learning valuable leadership skills.
“No Bullying” at Our Arizona Public Online High School – The Highlight of One Student’s Year!
Another student expressed that her favorite part of 2017 was starting school at Hope High School Online, which made us extremely happy and proud! She said, “At other schools, I have been harassed and bullied and it was cool to try out an online school that I could actually come to. At this school, I have met friends who like me for me and we work together to get our schoolwork done.” Whenever Hope High School Online can be a part of student highlights, we are thrilled!
Resolutions vs Goals
In talking with Hope High School Online students, it was apparent that they knew the difference between resolutions and goals. They decided that it would be best for them if they set goals for the year and worked toward those goals. The thought of having resolutions and maintaining abrupt changes was contrasted with the possibility of goals and the opportunity to grow as a person while developing the skills to overcome the obstacles they might encounter.
Excellent Hope High School Online Student Goals for 2018
With that said, our students came up with some excellent goals for 2018:
”Be myself more and try harder.”
“Get better at concentrating.”
“I want to get better at expressing and telling people how I feel.”
“I want to get better at not procrastinating.”
“I want to learn about life.”
“I want to finish more classes.”
We Support Our Arizona Public Online School Student Goals
Hope High School Online always strives to support our Arizona public online school students in any way we can while they are in high school. Supporting them in their transition to life after graduation is also incredibly important to us because we want our online high school students to find and create success after high school! For this reason, their goals are revisited so that students can monitor and measure their own personal growth. Our student lab is one way we connect with our local students. Our students are able to come into our office and work at their own pace. Our dedicated Arizona online public high school staff is able to tutor our online high school students when necessary. The students also enjoy developing friendships with other students and positive rapport with staff members. Students also have the support of the Hope High School Online academic coaches in reaching their goals for 2018.
All in all, Hope High School Online is a school about hope…..the hope that students develop for their futures, the hope that they can give one another, and the hope to realize their potentials!
