Freshmen reflect on high school

With the first semester behind us, freshmen are reflecting on their first experiences of high school.

December 21, 2017 marked the end of the first semester, and Freshmen have a lot to talk about. Students expressed how their views of high school have changed since graduating middle school.

“High school is a lot less scary than I originally thought it was going to be and I feel, for the most part, that it’s pretty easy,” said Savannah Proctor, a freshman.

Micah Brown, also a freshman, agreed with Proctor, in that high school students are much more accepting than anticipated.

“You guys are more welcoming in high school than [students were in] middle school, because they just kinda give you your classes and like ‘OK, bye,’” Brown said. “In high school they welcome you and have rallies.”

Proctor said even though she didn’t have issues, she knows freshmen who struggled. She said she hopes for a nicer environment for their sake.

“For myself, I hope to get better grades,” she said. “Just in general, and for the school, I hope that it can just be a nicer environment for everybody, because I know that some of my friends did have a little bit of a tough time, and I hope it’s just a better environment for everybody.”

Martin Foster, a freshman, hopes to “finish it strong” the next semester.

“I realize now that math is a little bit different than from what we’ve been doing in some of the school work and that we have a lot more classes and a lot more work to do,” he said. “The work is just going to get harder in the second semester. My grades were not what I expected last semester and I hope to bring them up to A’s and B’s next semester. You know, finish it strong.”

Frosh Health Teacher Jeff Bickmore explained how he thinks the freshmen will do their second semester.

“I think they’ll probably continue to keep doing well,” he said. ”I [also] think there’s some that may get comfortable and maybe make some mistakes. You know, because they’re more comfortable and they don’t feel as, maybe, intimidated by coming to high school and all of that.”
