Once, there was a small pond and in it a very large fish. This fish was the largest and soon outgrew the small pond so it swam down to the lake where it expected to still be considered very big. In this lake, however, there were much larger fish, and he came to find out he was now the smallest of the group.
High school offers a different opportunity for everyone: a chance to try new things, a chance to excel at a single talent, or even a chance to make a new friend. However, as most students can attest, the transition from the "little pond" of middle school to the "big pond" of high school can be a daunting experience. This experience carries through all four years spent here at SI and gives rise to academic, athletic, and social setbacks for many students. No longer the star athlete, or the class genius, or even the most popular classmate, many students face challenges in the realization that they are in fact a small fish in a very big pond. In this edition, Inside SI takes a look at these issues that hold SI students back from reaching their full potential.
