The core classes offered at Kennedy High School are split into four main groups, math, history, language arts, and science. Although they are all a very important part to our high school career they are very different from each other.
Math is an entire group in itself. There are so many different types of math to learn, such as calculus, geometry, trigonometry, algebra, exc. Math is different from the other five groups because the main aspect of math is numbers. Without numbers you don’t have math, just a bunch of equations. Math supports many different jobs like being an accountant, a financial planner, or a banker.
History is in a different group because in history you learn about the past. The list of histories you could research is endless. World history, U.S. history, and human geography are just a few areas that have been researched and can all be broken down into far smaller sectors of history. History can also help you in the future and takes place in our everyday lives. Some good history jobs would be archivist, documentary editor, or a museum curator.
A language art is a very big section in high school. Even when you’re not in a language arts class you still have to know how to write papers, or even to write sentences. Language arts involves all aspects of writing weather it’s writing a blog, a research paper, or just writing someone a letter. Some common jobs for people in the language arts field are magazine editors, authors, or a reporter.
Science is the last core group of the high school classes we have offered at Kennedy. The main parts of this group are chemistry, biology, and physics. Without science we would be lacking some very important jobs in our communities. Science majors could be doctors, chemists, and engineers. Without any of these professions I don’t know where our world would be today and because of this science is very important to learn in high school.
