Fayetteville High School

2020-21

  • The Reality check program definitely changed my view on a lot of things about relationships, alcohol, and social media. I actually thought this was a good lesson that helps people be more informed for the future.

  • I know more now. I feel more likely to think about my choices, no matter what they are, more in depth before I do them. This was also the first time that STDs have been discussed in a school setting towards myself. This is a good program to have out there and thank you all for caring about our knowledge of these subjects.

  • I thought it was very needed, to be educating us, high schoolers as we start to enter adulthood.

  • I realized that I should start working towards my big goals earlier on, and that I have the choice to not do bad things like drugs/alcohol.

  • It made me more aware of my relationships and whether or not I was reaching out to people for the right reasons.

  • It taught me to really take time to the people around me and make sure that I want them in my life. Also not to rush into an relationship with someone even if I feel that intense attraction because that attraction can wear off and I could end up in a relationship I shouldn't be in.

  • It just showed me how to treat my body and how to be safe physically and mentally.

  • it gave me good information on a everyday thing for teens, relationships, sexual activity and how our brain works while in use of alcohol and drugs.

  • It made me realize that drugs and alcohol are a big deal and we have so much more life to live and experience.

  • It was very helpful to learn about the impacts of the physical and emotional side of the conflicts of the wrong time and reason to have sexual activity. It is also very good life lesson to learn, obviously, but it's properly the right time, when going into high school.

  • It opened my eyes to the many aspects of my life and body. Those aspects determine what could happen in the future and the consequences of doing not-so-good things. At the heart of it all, the brain and the feelings you feel are the most important things. So many things have become so much more clear after this program.

  • Made me realize I shouldn't be lazy. I can’t say I wanna be this and that with no work improvements nor actions.  I should be responsible for my work cause my hard work will pay off soon. I just gotta be patient and believe in myself. Thank you for reminder.

  • The Reality Check program taught me about how to avoid getting stuck in an unhealthy relationship and I learned about how my brain reacts emotionally to different things and the types of attachments it creates.

  • Remind myself of my ultimate goal and not to lose focus, help me see my problems and reflect, and also focus on myself.

  • It is a good reminder that you need to make good choices now so that you will thank yourself later in life for the decisions that you are making in this moment so you don’t regret anything and you are content with what you have done because you have so much life ahead of you.

  • It helped me understand what I need to be careful of and take more consideration in the life ahead of me.

  • It helps me make better decisions and be a better person each day.

  • At first I thought this was dumb but then I realized I got so much information from it that I can use in my future.

  • Helping me understand that bringing people into my life that I don't know well is harmful and that I need to get to know more about that person before letting them get too much involved in my life. Also understanding that the choices I make now affect my future is the impact the Reality Check program had on me.

  • It gave me a better view of life and I'm more certain of things as well. Now I will be more careful and cautious with what I do. And I will be surrounding myself with people who will bring me up instead of bring be down and will help me get to the future I want to have.

  • It made me realize how important my future is and how to avoid things that could block me from my goals.

  • It made me think about relationships in a completely new way.

  • It gave me a better understanding and view of my responsibilities now and how I can shape my future to be how I want, with the things I do now.

  • It taught me how to think and act online and how to have healthy relationships with others.

  • The Reality Check helped me gain a better perspective on what to avoid in order to have a good and successful life. It helped me gain a better understanding of my body and how to protect it.

  • This helps me better understand my relationships and what to look for and what not to look for. This also helped me understand better of why some of my relationships did end and I know now they didn´t like me for really me; they were toxic relationships. Being smart on social media. Taking care of yourself emotionally and physically. Choices that we make in this short but critical point in our lives impact the rest of our lives.

  • I think it just highlighted some things that I have been taught in the past and made other things clearer. It showed what can have impacts on our lives and taught me some things I didn't know including some interesting information about love and emotions. I saw how every choice in life may affect your goals and you have to be careful.

  • The comparison between infatuation and love really opened my eyes on my own and my friends’ relationships. I learned that my own "love" wasn't really love but infatuation. I've also come to realize that there are more important things that I should be focusing on rather than spending my time obsessing over something that might not even happen.
