    Need advice-Highschool...

    I need advice on what highschool to go to..

    Only reason I'm asking here is because I need unbiased answers
    Also many of you are in highschool or well into your adulthood
    All help appreciated

    Well I have two highschools I really want to go to.

    Here are the options..

    Highschool #1-here are some points..
    - French immersion is what I have to take
    (it goes from grade 7-12.. I am now in my second year and I'm not.. The strongest.. ; low 70's in French..)
    - has alot of Tech classes ( automotive,machining,welding,construction,wood shop and I think that's all)
    - 3 electives I can take..
    - I know about half of the people at the school


    Highschool #2
    - English .. (yessss)
    - only wood shop and construction (Awww)
    - 2 electives.. 1 is taken away due to religeon
    - I know about 50 kids there

    So the reason I like school number two is because it's English
    I've been really struggling this year with my French
    I used to get 1's and 2's..
    But now I'm getting a tutor so i am now getting 3's but im still fairly bad..

    And help would be appreciated..
    If I do go to highschool #1 I can become bilingual..

    Here's my advice, I wouldn't go just because I know more people. Do this for your self and in the process you'll make friends. I was in your position but that's how I decided which high school to go to and it turned out great! But if it were me I would also check other things like all subjects because I know some places offer and or require different things(you might any to look for math that isn't required it just looks better on a transcript for college.

    take school 1! Its a challenge but who has ever "Grown" from not going through tough times?

    Other points to consider, you know people there so it will be easy to "fit it" and get assistance from your peers. It has more classes that you are interested in. If you WANT to get up and go to school, obviously, you'll learn more!

    Who knows, maybe you'll find a teacher that helps you find your chosen career path and puts you there.

    School #1
    More courses and French emmersion
    Great options on different tech courses
    Another language is always a plus.
    You'll be greatful later on when you have another language you know

    You won't like it now but will be happy you stuck it out

    Choos a school not based on how many friends are there but on the resources the school has to offer and that they are applicable to what you are thinking of doing for your career path... Go for the school that offers you the best education you can get and you won't be sorry... SO many pick the school they feel they will get by easiest with,, not always the smartest of choices....

    I think it's school #1 then.
    I'll see where my marks are by the end of the year
    I think I'll at least try it
    I mean it's only 8 subjects a year..
