When freshmen think of high school, they think of the intimidating summer school, large hallways and a huge campus with classes spread in all directions. The students may have fears, but they also have high hopes of what they want to accomplish their first year.

“[My biggest fear is] not knowing where my classes will be, but I am looking forward to being on the basketball team next year,” Sara Zabrecky (‘20) said.

One optimistic side of the crowded hallways and classrooms is seeing new faces daily and making new friends.

“I am most afraid of the crowds and the teachers I will have next year. However, I am looking forward to meeting new people,” Trina Pappas (‘20) said.

As a school we should help the freshmen feel as comfortable as possible. Returning students should greet them with smiles and help them find their way around the school.
