Freshmen transition to high school life

By Anna Berry, Eli Bolus, and Blake Dykes
For most freshmen, the transition from middle school to high school can be a big change. From the number of people, classes, and halls, the first week can be full of different opinions.
“I expected to get lost a lot,” said freshman Colleen Bryan.
This can be the case for many others new to the larger high school. However, freshmen Josh Sauer said he had problems finding classes. After he learned where they were, he described it as “pretty easy, simple.” The first week, according to some freshmen, was different than they expected for several reasons.

“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.”
