Sometimes we wonder what some of the thoughts are that go through the minds of freshmen as they enter high school. The freshman class was sent a Google form asking them to reflect on their transition from middle school.
Brenna Langenberg said, “Freshman year has been way better than middle school and elementary. Classes are longer, you get Chromebooks, bigger hallways, and better sports teams. I can’t wait for high school to continue and for me to enjoy my teenage years.”
Kate Jones replied, “High school is better than middle school.”
Madison McCarty said, “So high school was scary at first, but then I met new people and now I just go with the flow.”
Blake McClure responded, “This will be much more fun than middle school.”
In the words of Mikayla McFerrin, “I love it.”
Jarlin Alvarez said, “It’s fun and easy.”
Kelsey Brumels said, “I like it-- you get more options and more freedom. You make a lot of friends, and everyone is nice and not judgemental, and no one really cares what you wear or anything. And sports are more interesting and more fun.”
Dominick Cox commented, “It's pretty cool. It's better than middle school.”
Carter Ratcliff replied with, “I wasn't as nervous going in as I was in middle school. So far I've enjoyed it a lot. Being able to have 2 days to do homework is great, just in case. I like all the teachers, especially Mr. Tucker and Mrs. Schlafer. The only really bad thing is being at the bottom of the ‘hierarchy.’ But it could be a lot worse, and other than that, it's been great.”
Sounds like the freshmen class is off to a good start and enjoying their new high school status. Good luck on the rest of the year, freshmen!
