End of Their First Year

The end of the year is coming up quickly. Most students are preparing for summer, and counting down the days. School can put a lot of pressure on students., but it puts a lot of weight on freshmen.

Freshmen have to adjust to a new school and new people. They also have to worry about their next three years. First years, in addition, have to keep a high GPA. Freshmen also have a chance for new friendships and new experiences throughout high school. There are a lot of things that come with going into the 9th grade.

Most underclassmen are usually nervous at the beginning of the year. One freshmen said he “felt new” at the beginning of the year. He also voiced that he “felt more comfortable and was able to talk to more people” as the year progressed. Others said they weren’t bothered by it. Everybody handles their first year of high school differently.

Overall, school puts a lot of stress on students no matter what grade. With all the work and grades, everyone just wants it to be summer break. Teachers also want the school year to be over. These final weeks are going to be the most stressful for teachers and students. Everyone is trying to make it through these last nine weeks.
