“All the teachers were suppose to be hard and strict,” said Sauer.
Also, freshman Brayden Hoke thought high school was going to be tough but said it turned out to be easier than he thought.
One of the biggest changes for many freshmen is the teaching style of their teachers. Some freshmen have trouble studying for the harder tests.
“It’s harder to take notes because teachers do not explain much,” said freshman Kaelei Gnthulier.
Some freshmen also enjoy how the school rules are a little more lenient. “I like the dress code a lot better,” said Gnthulier.
“[I like that] people have grown up a little, and are not as concerned about what you wear and what you say,” freshman Jalyn Kowalski said.
Overall, freshmen tend to find their place in high school and begin to get the layout of the school down. Many have high hopes for the rest of the year.
“For the most part, I want the rest of my high school career to be similar to this week,” said freshman Liam Resener. “The best part about being a freshman is that you’re going to be a sophomore.”
