    I notice how you talk about middle school and Highschool as if it’s immediately a different environment. Depending on what highschool you go to, socially and activity wise it can be the exact same thing. Even still entering middle highschool from a descent middle school, your first 2 years of highschool aren’t going to be much different besides the physical environment. When you become a junior is when you start preparing for college (or at least you should) at which point your social and extracurricular life may take a juristic change.

    High school is a lot better than middle school. I agree with it because I felt the same way as the sources. I like how descriptive the quotes are and it makes the point clear.

    I really like this article because i can connect to it and i really get all of the people and quotes in here. Kimberly Miranda made a really good point with saying that middle school and high school are definitely not the same. High school is definitely gonna be harder but it’s a new change and experience, so hopefully it’ll be fun.

    I really like this article, and not just because I’m quoted in this lol. I think this topic is a lot of fun because not only do the freshmen get to talk about how they feel, but the upperclassmen get to see how we feel. I feel like this article is a fun glimpse into the awkwardness of freshmen year, and that is really funny to me. I love this so much, good job Jasmine. Also thank you for asking me a few questions!

    High school is very different from middle school. I agree with the artical because as a freshman I was very nervous to start high school. I felt like I was growing up too fast and was scared to go to high school.

    Reading this makes me think back to my freshman year and how nervous I was on the first day but it is something we all go through. I’ve met some new freshman and they are definitely way more calm compared to last years freshman. I do look forward to be helping some in HLA!

    Going into highschool is definitely nerve racking. I was nervous to see how highschool would be after having to do my 8th grade year online due to covid. Now that i’m a junior I realized it’s not too bad but it is definitely more serious than middle school.

    As a guy who did virtual learning throughout my freshman year, it’s fascinating to read about the freshmen who experienced the year in-school. I wouldn’t have thought that freshmen would have enjoyed lunch at Osbourn more than at Metz. This is a fun read.

    high-school does feel a lot more empty as if there’s not much to do, I really hate having to walk from one side of the building to the complete opposite side of the building like -_-

    I agree with article because I was a person that was nervous and scared because I didn’t know what high school life was all about. It’s more stressing and serious than middle school
