What To Buy A Highschool Graduate !!EXCLUSIVE!!

It's easy to give them cold, hard cash -- which high school graduates always appreciate -- but they'll probably be even more grateful for a graduation gift that's meaningful, useful and won't immediately get spent on gas and groceries. After all, the best graduation gifts come from the heart.

If you've ever slept on a dorm mattress, you know just how horribly uncomfortable they can be. So if your favorite graduate will be moving into a dorm room in the fall, they'll be grateful for an upgrade. This mattress topper is a great gift and exactly what they'll need to add extra cushioning and transform their sleeping experience. Bonus: A topper also makes it a whole lot easier to clean up spills after late-night snacking in bed.

Nothing can replace Mom or Dad's home cooking, but a cash-strapped graduate would love having more food options beyond the dining hall. College students may not always have the option to cook food in their dorms. So if you're looking for high school graduation gifts, this could be perfect.

DoorDash is a popular choice for food delivery, and it's our top pick among food delivery apps, thanks to its numerous restaurant options and easy app interface. You can purchase gift cards for any amount between $25 and $500, customize it with a graduation theme, and send it to your graduate via mail, text or email.

For college bound grads that aren't staying at home, chances are they'll need to deal with noisy roommates. The newest version of Sony's top noise-canceling headphones will block out unwanted noise so your graduate can focus on homework or just relax with music. Thanks to its strong battery life, comfortable fit and refined sound, Sony's WH-1000XM5 received our Editors' Choice award. The older -- but still great -- XM4 models remain available, and sometimes dip to as low as $280.

High school graduates are also an age group that can benefit immensely from thoughtful gifts. They may not have the cash to buy the clothes or tech they'll want for internships or coursework, but friends and family can chip in to lighten the load.

If your graduate is headed to school, they'll probably spend the next few years lugging their laptop around campus and into work. Get them a comfortable, trendy, polished backpack they can use for all of it.

Whether you can't be there in person or you want to supplement another gift, send your graduate beautiful flowers to celebrate their achievement. We recommend UrbanStems; the company's bouquets are one of the best items we've ever tested.

Few high school graduates are enthusiastic about cooking a well-rounded meal for themselves every night. They'll appreciate the thought if the next few late-night meals or hurried lunches are on your dime.

If your graduate goes through notebook after notebook, this reusable option offers a long-lasting solution. They can use the included pen to take notes, scan each page with an accompanying app to save the pages digitally, and then wipe away the notes to reuse the same page.

If they're headed to college, your high school graduate will probably be spending their fair share of Saturdays sprawled out on the quad's grass. This blanket is packable, machine- and dryer-safe, and water-resistant. It's also one of the Insider Reviews All-Time Best products we've ever tested.

Whether they're heading into a new college town, starting a new job, or taking a gap year, there will be nights when it's more convenient or safer for your graduate to Uber home. Having a gift card already loaded into their account just makes it an easier decision to make.

It may not be the most strictly fun gift, but every graduate should have a toolbox. It'll help them build their furniture and fix household issues when their landlord doesn't pick up any of their calls.

It's also a time when the requirements for the scary and exciting years to come likely outstrip his budget. When I graduated high school, the money I made at the upscale pizza restaurant in town didn't seem adequate for textbooks and the simple pleasures, like nice headphones to block out noise in the library, or more adult accessories like a nice messenger bag, presentable blazer, or office-appropriate backpack.

The good news is that gifts for recent high school graduates can solve a lot of problems (or just offer a fun way to celebrate a big milestone). With that in mind, we rounded up 40 thoughtful and practical high school graduation gifts for him below.

The Roku Ultra stands out from other streaming device options thanks to its 4K and HDR support, speed, reliability, and large library of streaming services (Netflix, HBO Max, Rakuten Viki, and more.). Plus, if your graduate wants to watch TV on the big screen without disturbing anyone, it comes with headphones for private listening.

Whether he loves to read or might appreciate the lightness and compactness of an e-reader, a Kindle is a great gift for recent graduates. He can read in broad daylight without a glare with the Paperwhite version, and store thousands of books for the same forgettable weight.

Is your high school graduate off to college? If so, this book is the ideal gift. Perfect for helping them to tackle that very important first year of college, this book claims to speak to incoming college students in their own language. (Click here or on the book below to purchase.)

Provide your high school graduate with a gift that requires a little bit of work but will be worth a lifetime of memories. Featuring hundreds of journal questions, this book provides prompts that allow your soon to be college student to jot down their current thoughts and memories throughout their college career, in turn creating the ultimate time capsule to enjoy for years to come. (Click hereor on the book below to purchase.)

I have a college graduate living in my house (her cap and gown are hanging just a few feet from my as I type this), and this is a FABULOUS list. Pinned for future grad-gift buying reference! So glad I hopped over from #Coffee&Conversation!

All of these diplomas are valid high school diplomas. All students can earn a Regents or advanced Regents diploma. An advanced Regents diploma lets students show additional skills in math, science, and languages other than English. Only some students who meet specific criteria can graduate with a local diploma, with lower exam scores.

For the high school graduate who may be on their way to college, technical school, or a different path, say congrats with thoughtful items that recognize their responsibility as young adults. A coffee maker, air fryer, or other small home appliances are excellent ideas for soon-to-be college students gathering supplies for their dorm room. You could also go the route of an Amazon Prime subscription which provides a time-saving way for them to order everything from desk and office supplies to toilet paper, textbooks, and more.

A student who opts for a flexible schedule to take elective courses, pursue career technical education programs or courses as selected by the student to participate in apprenticeships or internships, or act as a tutor at any grade level or to graduate early the student must first meet the following:

For some students, the option to attend or graduate from high school may not have been possible. Instead, they may have pursued a GED. A GED stands for the General Educational Development Test. A GED is granted to students who take this series of tests whether or not they graduated high school. If they pass the GED, then they get the credential of doing so, which can signal to employers and prospective academic institutions that the student has the level of knowledge equivalent to having graduated from high school.

The State Board of Education sets state credit requirements and local districts may set additional requirements. The Legislature identified the tests students must take to graduate, and the Board sets the scores students must earn on those tests.

A table comparing the requirements of the Class of 2016 and the 24 Credit Career- and College-Ready Graduation Requirements is available here. Note: this table pertains only to credits required to graduate.

Figure 3 shows high school graduation trends for various student subgroups. This shows that the 2020 increase was larger for English-language learners, students with disabilities, and Black students. Many different factors could have contributed to this pattern. For example, author Harris spoke with an administrator in special education who said that state exams were particularly difficult for students with disabilities pre-COVID-19, so relaxing this standard made it easier to graduate. This is just one example of many possible state- or local-level policy changes that could have disproportionately affected graduation rates for students in these groups.

In some respects, we might have expected the results to be more similar in Figures 1 and 2 than what they showed. They both focus on teenagers (aged 17-19). Also, with more high school graduates after the onset of the pandemic, there were more potential college entrants.

There is still much we need to learn about educational decisions under COVID-19, and we will have to wait and see whether the drops in initial college enrollment in 2021 are offset by adjustments later. Perhaps high school graduates just redshirted college in the way that kindergartners have often done even before the pandemic, and they will return next year.

Perhaps the main difference between a GED and a diploma is the time requirement. Typically, traditional high school students need four years to complete classes and graduate. The GED is a 7-hour test; preparing for it typically takes less than a year. In most states, you can take the GED tests any time after age 16.

Hi Meena! If you attended an adult education center you can reach out to them and see if they have a graduation ceremony. We will also have a virtual celebration for all GED graduates this spring so watch out for emails about that!
