High School vs. College
“Change is the end result of all true learning.”- Leo Buscaglia
High School and College both give the benefit of having students learn in a classroom. In high school and college, the main objective is to learn and become more knowledgeable.

The students will then realize how big the transition is from high school to college. Teachers in high school and college are similar to one another because they all have a passion for teaching, they are determined and will teach students what needs to be taught.

They are usually available before, during, and after class if there are any questions.

When not in the classroom teachers also get involved with school activities such as being advisors for school clubs and events. Some teachers will also coach the high school sport teams. As for college, Professors assume a student’s homework is complete. Dr. Drew Appleby states in the article “The Differences Between High School And College”, “Professors may not always check completed homework, but they will assume you can perform the same tasks on test” (2013). Students are expected to know when upcoming assignments are due by using the syllabus they received on the first day...
