For students, freshmen year can be a big change as they transition from middle to high school. Grades begin to count. Classes are harder. It’s a new environment with different people and new teachers.
For me, the freshmen year hasn’t been as tough as people have always described it. It’s true that classes are more difficult, but besides that, everything has been great.
I asked some freshmen about how high school has been for them. They all agreed that high school is very different from middle school, and that teachers give more challenging and time consuming assignments.
In middle school, we were preparing for high school and in high school we are preparing for college. Everything we do in high school now counts for our future.
Freshmen year is a new start, but that also means there’s new things to learn and there’s a big change in our lives.
