In the United States, secondary school is called high school; students begin high school in ninth grade, when they have completed eight years of school.
An average day for a high school student begins with a brief “homeroom” period, when the roll is taken and announcements are made. The rest of the day is divided into eight or nine “periods” of equal length, usually 45-50 minutes.
At the beginning of each period, when the bell rings, students go into a classroom to begin class. Every period they have a different class, with a different teacher, in a different room. Some of their fellow students move with them from class to class, but many have very different class schedules.

One can’t live without friends, especially teenagers.
School is the place where the real friendship begins. But it’s not easy to meet a true and faithful friend.
A real friend is the one who is ready to share not only your joys but all your sorrows and troubles.

All the people in their childhood studied at school.
Not all students like going there. Of course it’s hard to get up early every day and do a lot of homework but school plays a great role in our life.
We get the principal knowledge in school. It gives us not only knowledge but new friends.

I study in an English Secondary school. It is called so because English is paid much attention to.
When we have English lessons the class is split into three groups, so there are ten or twelve pupils in each group.
We have English five times a week. Some subjects are taught in English. They are English and American Literature, the Theory of Technical Translation, Applied Economics.

In early childhood children tell their parents whom they would like to be when they grow up.
In school students begin thinking of their future profession.
There are lots of professions in the world, and all of them are interesting and exciting. So it’s very hard to discover your vocation in life.
The choice of profession depends on your abilities.If you are good at humanities you should choose something in this field. And if you are good at natural sciences you should choose something closely connected with them.
I would like to become a chemist because I like chemistry. I think that it is a very interesting subject, but I am not so good at it so I think that I am not suitable for this profession. In spite of all I possess some qualities which are needed in this field.
I think that my future profession will be closely connected with computers. I am capable to work with them, and I also possess the qualities needed in this work. They are accuracy, energy, carefulness. But I hesitate if I have enough patience. I must develop it if I want to become a computer operator.
I know that it would be better to choose a profession of an interpreter or any other occupation connected with Russian and literature because I am good at these subjects but when I began to study the computer skills that was what I have been looking for. In our modern world it’s hard to do without computers. They are needed everywhere, and I hope that my interests in this subject will never change in spite of any circumstances.

I’d like to tell some words why I’ve decided to base my future profession on chemistry.
When I got acquainted with the simplest chemicals and reactions for the first time, I didn’t realize entirely how interesting chemistry is and how complicated it is, too.
In the 8th grade “chemistry” appeared in my school time-table and due to books, due to my teacher I was getting more and more absorbed by the marvelous world of chemistry. Читать далее How I’ve made up my mind about my future profession
The educational system in Great Britain is extremely complex.
Each school is responsible for its own organization and curriculum.
The Department of Education and Science is responsible for national educational policy, but it doesn’t run any schools, and it doesn’t employ teachers or prescribe curricula or text-books. Читать далее Educational System in Great Britain
Educational System in Russia is not so complicated as it is in Great Britain.
The school education is compulsory.
Pupils begin to go to school at the age of seven. The pupils are not streamed as they are in England.
When they complete nine grades, they can either continue to study at school for two more years or to go to a professional school, where they study not only main subjects but are able to learn some profession and to become skilled workers. Читать далее Educational System in Russia (in brief)
Information science deals with the laws as well as ways and means of accumulating and processing information.
The necessity to store and exchange information led
to the development of speech and writing, printing and art, radio and TV.
But the most important thing about utilization of information is the planning of purposeful activity aimed at solving problems or making decisions on the basis of the acquired information. And until recently this planning was performed by the human mind exclusively. Читать далее Computerization of Economy
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” You have heard this question many times during your school years, haven’t you?
Perhaps it was difficult for you to give a definite answer, perhaps it wasn’t. Perhaps you changed you mind as the years passed about which science or field of industry you would like to specialize in.
There are always some boys and girls who know very well what they are going to do after leaving school. Читать далее Choosing a Profession
