We all know freshman year can be very stressful at first with a bunch of new people and more classes, but the class of 2023 were not too anxious about it. Have things changed with incoming freshmen this year?
We asked the freshmen how they've adapted to their new environment. Expecting different answers, freshman Brooke Judson said, ¨I've adapted very easily, I get a hang of things quickly¨.
As it seems all the freshmen we interviewed had the same answer to that question, high school was easy to adapt too. Another question we asked the freshmen was “̈Does highschool scare you?” Many answers were the same and unexpected.
Two freshmen boys, named Will and Nick, “No not really”.
Looking back at your freshman year, walking through the halls with kids almost four years older than you can be a little intimidating, but these freshmen didn't seem to mind. We asked how the upperclassmen have been treating the newbies. “They've all treated me really well, I've had no problems so far.” says freshman Madison McGeachy.
One of the main description of highschool we heard from every single freshmen interviewed is “freedom.” High school gives freshmen more freedom than the middle school and all I can say is we agree with them. When asking Lucas a question about liking middle school or high school better he states, “[High School is] very confusing to start, this school has a lot more freedom than every other school”. Along with him, Will says “It's fun because you can be with older kids and it is more free”.
The overall highschool experiencé for freshmen is looking like its going smoothly this year. More freedom and fun, we are glad Wethersfield High School is a good learning place for new students and we hope it continues every year.
