In High School there is always pressure of succeeding many of the kids are pressured by their parents classmates and even society In High School you are pressured to do your best so that you get accepted in to a good college no matter what the consequences may be just so they can please their parents and be a 1st or another generation to go a big college In the movie School Ties by Robert Mandel it shows how 3 boys Charlie Dillon Mack McGivern and David Greene are crushed by the pressures of conformity at their High School St MatthewsThe movie starts off in mid-1950 in Scranton Pennsylvania where David Greene lives David just got accepted in to St Matthews on a football scholarship and after his year at St Matthews was planning on attending Harvard so he was willing to go to that high school so that he could help them beat their old rival team The problem with David was that he was not as rich as all the boys that went to St Matthews which meant he actually had to work hard at doing well in this school and for his money The main issue though is that David was a Jewish boy going to an all Catholic school back in that time they discriminated against Jews The day that David went off to his new school his father told him to keep his Jewish identity secret so that he would be able to fit in with the other boys When David arrived and got settled in with all the new friends he made he had to go take his shower for the night When he started to get undressed he realized that he still was wearing the Star of David He then took it off so that his identity of being Jewish would be saved from all the boys at high school to avoid conflict and to please his fathers
