Our project's original goal was to assess suicide rates in the schools of the United States that led to looking at certain causes, including stress. We decided to analyze stress and how that correlates to the main factor in students' lives, school. We attempted to see how the amount of work amalgamated with the pressure to perform successfully in a 9-12 school system correlated with the amount of stress and anxiety in students. The purpose of the project was to gather results from Rincon and University High School to show just how much of a toll work and pressure to perform has on its students. ​Here at University High School, we are very aware that workload, tests/exams, and the pressure to perform are major stress and anxiety sources for students. There is simply not enough time at home to live a balanced life due to the amount of homework and late nights studying for all four core classes, some students participating in extracurricular activities or sports don't have enough time to do one another. It's an overwhelming amount of work and can put students into stress trying to maintain at least decent grades to pass each year, therefore we are doing this project to give students attending University High School a balance between school and life at home.

One thought on “An Examination of the Correlation between Academic Workloads, an Emphasis on Secular Exemplarity, and the Disruption of Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQL) in a 9-12 School System ​

  1. I really liked how you did the “ANXIETY SCORE (%) V. SCHOOLWORK SCORE” graph!
