High School is already overwhelming as it is, being a freshman in highschool is a whole different story. For freshman, high school is an entirely new topic.
“The subjects are a little challenging, but fun. I plan to to get A’s in my classes and stay on top of everything,” said Kaylee Bliaya, a freshman. Freshmen are experiencing new topics and ideas. Their perspectives are changing and stress levels are rising.
High school is so different from middle school. “Middle school projects would be given out every two months, but now there’s seven going on at once,” said Elsie Gutierrez. Middle School to High School is a big transition. Homework is slowly increasing, bags under your eyes are developing, and sleep is your new best friend. Homework is getting harder to keep track of and everything keeps on piling up.
“On a scale of one to ten my stress level is a 7," said Koree Yniguez. It’s been nearly a month and students are already freaking out.
“I’m having a little trouble finding a balance in my work, but I know everything will fall into place. I’m excited to find out what more The Samueli Academy has in store for us,” said Mariana Ortega- Rodriguez.
There’s been a lot of different activities going on during school. There has been games, rallies, town halls, and even a dance. “I’m happy to be here and I’m making new friends,” said Mariana Ortega-Rodriguez, freshman. Even though the school is fairly new, the ninth graders seem to be like the way the school is organized.
“I didn’t expect the school to be so nice. I pictured the school larger and more intimidating.” Kaylee Bliaya also said, “The Samueli Academy is a welcoming school and I’m happy to be here.” Samueli Academy is fresh, new, and ready to leave a mark in their community.
