“I like the high school more than the middle school so far. My favorite part would be getting to be with people who I wasn’t in school with before and being part of a lot of new activities. There is a difference in the workload. Also, extracurriculars are a lot more intense. My least favorite part of WHS is probably the total lack of free time.”

“Just last block I was playing volleyball with my friends, but if I was at the middle school I would’ve been in study reading. Lunch is better because you can come and go. I like how you’re forced to meet new people, because you might not have lunch with your friend group. I like it better because the content is much more interesting. I got bored in my classes in middle school because the curriculum was very simple.”

“I like high school because we can actually do stuff. In middle school, we had to sit in class and study hall all day. My favorite part of the high school is that it is much bigger, it’s not just one building. There is a lot more homework, which is probably my least favorite part.”

“Everything counts now, so that makes high school a little more stressful. It is just very different. There are so many tests and quizzes, but it is much more interesting.”

“[High school is] pretty good. It’s a little different. It’s a lot easier than I thought it would be. I think the difference was realizing that you won’t be able to see as much of your friends as you did in middle school. The lunches aren’t separated by grade and classes. They change a lot. And you have frees instead of always having to stay in a room. Just becoming a little more independent.”

“I’d have to agree that you can’t see your friends as much [in high school]. Things are definitely very independent compared to middle school.

“I think the work is a lot different, and it’s pretty challenging too. [High school is] a lot more independent than middle school, because middle school was just one building, and now there’s the field house and two other buildings.”
