If I was a high school career counselor now, here would be the things I would tell
my
students.
Yes, most of the stuff you will probably never use in your future job, that’s
because most
likely you’ll be working will be deskilled to the point that you don’t n
eed to think. The
only exception is English and Math.
The purpose of school is to help you build good habits. You may be smart, but
it’s your
work ethic that will get you ahead.
College Prep classes really doesn’t prepare you for college, if you want to go to a decen
t
college, you must take AP classes.
Your reward for doing well in high school is going to a good college. Undergrad
is a once
in a lifetime experience that you shouldn’t miss.
Don’t believe in all that high school sterotype bullcrap
