So you say Spring Awakening isn't fit for high schools. However, high schools around the country have played it, from New York to Wisconsin to Florida, where survivors of the Parkland school tragedy just appeared in a local community performance. It's been done with great success, so it's not exactly clear why it wouldn't be able to handle the added attention and responsibility of teaching students about sexual violence.
The most common reason given by those who will not allow Spring Awakening into their schools is that it is too explicit. But what does this actually mean? Is there anything in the script that might lead students to act out sexually? Are there any scenes that might give rise to discussions about sex?
The answer is no, because Spring Awakening tells a story, not gives advice. There are no attempts made to tell students how to deal with their issues, only a look into the mind of a young man as he confronts his past sins and tries to find a way forward.
So really, schools should not be denying students the chance to see this amazing production because of some puritanical notion of what teenagers should or should not be seeing. If anything, Spring Awakening could help students learn more about sexual violence by showing its effects on one person's life.
In the Spring Grove region, the Spring Grove Area School District now offers three primary schools, an intermediate school, a middle school, and one high school. Spring Grove Area High School is the name of the high school. A new high school, closer to the middle and intermediate schools, was recently erected nearby. It is this building that students use today.
Students are zoned to different schools based on their address within the district. Zoning for elementary schools is by census tract while zoning for middle and high schools is by block group. However, none of these buildings are racially segregated. All students attend all-gender schools.
There are two private institutions of higher education in the Spring Grove area. Montgomery County Community College's West Campus is located just outside of the city limits of Spring Grove. The campus offers several degree programs including nursing, medical assisting, dental assisting, radiology technology, and many other fields related to health care. In addition, it provides training in office skills and business services such as legal research, financial management, human resources development, and more.
Montgomery College - Maryland's largest community college - has five campuses across the state. The main campus is in Rockville near the center of the county but there are also campuses in Gaithersburg, Germantown, Wheaton, and White Marsh. This college offers degrees in over 50 fields of study with courses available online through MC2.
William McKinley High Institution for the Performing Arts is a fictitious school that serves as one of the show's key locales. The school is said to be in Lima, Ohio, yet there is no school in Lima called McKinley. McKinley High Schools may be found in Canton and Niles, Ohio. The television show has no relation to the actual school.
In an interview with TV Guide, actor Dan Aykroyd explained, "We used to have schools in Chicago that were similar. Then they changed them all after we filmed there last time." He also went on to say, "They're all supposed to be like this: half school, half theater. It's not true of any other school I know of."
The show was set in Chicago before it moved to Los Angeles. However, since William McKinley High is never mentioned anywhere else on the show, it can be assumed that this was another case of creative license being taken by the writers.
Although not confirmed by NBC, it has been rumored that McKinley might be based on the same high school that John Hughes attended - Lincoln Park Central School District #1. The show would have taken place in Chicago during its first season before moving to Los Angeles. Like William McKinley High, this rumor is just that - a rumor. There are many differences between the two schools that make them unlikely to be the same school.
This item was reviewed recently and is current as of December 14, 2020. High School of the Dead, sometimes known as 'Apocalyptic Academy: High School of the Dead,' is a Japanese horror anime based on the same-named manga. The story follows two friends, Shun Asada and Ryōta Takahashi, who go to a high school where people can attend any authorized educational institution in the world. When their school becomes involved in a battle between gods from different mythologies, the students are forced to fight using their skills as future police officers.
High School of the Dead has been released in several countries including Japan, South Korea, United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India and Europe.
It premiered in Japan on January 6, 2008. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for distribution in North America.
The first season consists of 13 episodes and covers the events at Seika University during its first semester. A second season covering the second semester was announced in 2009. The second season aired in Japan from April to June 2010 and added three new characters: Kureha Asada, Reina Takakura and Rinko Kikuchi. A third season is in production and will focus on other schools besides Seika University. It is expected to air in 2016.
The American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement in 2014 recommending that middle and high schools begin no earlier than 8:30 a.m. as an effective way of addressing the serious public health issue of insufficient sleep in adolescents, a position echoed in 2015 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention...
The current average school day in the United States is about 90 minutes long, which means that most students don't get enough sleep. Not only is this amount of time not sufficient for growing brains but it's also associated with increased rates of obesity, diabetes, and other health problems.
By starting classes later, students would have more time to sleep before they head off to class. This would help them retain what they've learned during their sleeping hours and give them the energy they need for the day.
Additionally, starting classes later would allow teachers more time to plan lessons and students more time to process information. This could lead to improved academic performance and less stress for everyone involved.
There are several reasons why schools start so early even though so many students lack sleep. First, the requirement that students attend school every day applies to nearly all schools, including private ones. So even if a school did choose to open at 9 a.m., officials would be forced to remove someone from the classroom.
Springtown High School has 982 students in grades 9 through 12. The student-to-teacher ratio is 14:1, which is lower than the Texas state average of 15:1. Approximately 91% of the school's graduates go on to some form of higher education, with nearly half going on to a four-year college or university.
Of the $764,000 spent on tuition at Texas public universities and colleges, Springtown residents spend about $20 million annually. In fact, the town's economy largely depends on its high school since there are no other industries that could provide jobs for all those who want them.
Over 90% of Springtown's population is made up of Hispanic or Latino people, mostly of Mexican origin. About 8% are African American. The remaining 4% include Asian Americans, Native Americans, and others.
About 75% of the students at Springtown High School qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, which is given to children from low-income families. This means they get food stamps, school meals, etc.
The majority of students at Springtown attend other private schools before entering high school. These schools include St Mark's Episcopal School, Central Methodist University, and Southwestern Assemblies of God University.
