School is never like it is in the American movies. For example, the school buses never pick you up directly from your house and doesn’t drop you off from there either. Also at school there is no such thing as detention hall and the local “hub”. If you think about it, you find high school is much more productive here than in England. But it is also much harder. Not that there is more tests but there are way more projects. Like very recently I had to do a huge alphabet book for an English project. I had to get a noun, verb, adjective and an adverb from every letter. Then define all of them and then put them in a complex sentence. It’s over now and I hated every part of that project.
