My eighth grade year has been a crazy year. There has been a lot of work and preparation for moving into high school. Eighth grade was my last year as a middle schooler. I am sad but also excited for what's to come. I assume that I will like high though. This year has had highs but it's also had its lows. Overall I have enjoyed this year quite a bit. I have enjoyed my whole middle school career, I guess you could say it has been fun. I am excited to move on though and see what's to come.
Going from a middle school to high school pretty much for anybody can tend to be challenging. High school is the place where you start to mature yourself and better yourself for later on in life for whatever the future may bring. Coming from 8th grade entering into high school as a freshman depending on where you're at can be tough, you really start to realize that you are starting to have responsibilities. You may not start feeling that way in the beginning which in my case I could say the same, but it definitely comes. Converting as an 8th grader to high school you notice the teachers don't baby you in situations if it's your work or your project it's your job to know what's going on the teachers definitely won't look for you.
Eighth grade and ninth grade are nothing alike.They are not alike because in eighth grade the eighth graders are the oldest students there.It is also different because since they are the oldest they get the most respect.In ninth grade the ninth graders are the youngest and get the least respect.In ninth grade or freshman year the students are new to the school and you don't really know anyone but your friends.To get through your first year as a freshman you must make a lot of friends and have good relationships with all your friends. Something that can help make you many friends is joining clubs or teams.Another way to get through freshman year is by helping other students on homework and classwork.If you are done with classwork
8th grade has been a hell of a ride, I went through ups and downs, met new people, learned new things, and finally finished middle school. But along this hellish ride I encountered many challenges (and sorta solved them). I learned life lessons and had people help me along the way, I achieved goals that I set for myself. Most importantly, I learned many methods from AVID that I hope I will always use and take advantage of. Without AVID I would probably not care about my grades so much as much as I do now.
I just want to say 8th grade is an experience you will never have again. It’s a point in life where you are a kid and adult at the same time. It’s a place to grow up and become who you want in life. Your 8th grade year is going to be lots of hard work, you have to fight to make it. Mostly no one slips by 8th grade without attempting to do their best.
If I knew then what I know now I would let up and coming 8th graders know about requirements, friendships, & the building. High School is said to be one of the best times of your life. But, it can also be a scary experience. It is up to you how your high school experience turns out to be. I have only been in high school for twos years. It has been stressful but yet its been extremely fun. Spartanburg High School has many exciting opportunities for you and I to try out.
Life as a middle school student will be totally different from the high school life. These are two different things and way more things will be expected from each and every student now that we are in high school. It will not be as easy as middle school was because when coming to the high school students will have to face hard challenges that might throw them off because they are not use to it. After a couple of week of experiencing high school it will start to get a little easier. Do not to expect high school to go by easy as middle school. If my word could get to the upcoming 8th graders about life at Spartanburg High School I would warn them about academics, sports, and friendships.
My 7th grade year was much easier because I was used to being in the school with the big kids. Sports weren’t the same as they were in 6th grade. I didn’t get playing time because the 8th and 9th graders. It wasn’t too much fun playing with 8th and 9th graders. The work was still easy except for science I never understood it. It caused me to have a d in science. My 8th grade year was not so bad. I got better at sports and got a little bit of playing time. My grade in science still was bad. I got in trouble in my English class because we had had Ipads and figured out how to text on it. Kids in my class and I were texting each other on it and the other kids started putting bad stuff so I pretended that I was our
Should 8th graders remain a part of the middle school or should they be moved to the high school? I as an 8th grader does not think that we should be moved to the high school. One reason, the high school would get over crowded. Another reason, what would the school do with the second floor of the school. Furthermore, it could have negative consequences on student morale and development.
I am sure it will not be hard to make new friends. The 8th graders are very intimidating but they are actually very friendly and they want to help you through the year. Do not be one of those people who start drama and try to stay out of is. This is a big part of jr. high and you need to avoid it. Just make friends and don’t make a fuss. Make wise choices and do everything thinking about God looking over your shoulder. Think before you do and not do before you think.
Middle school just seemed like another round at the elementary school. The year that I was dreading came along, seventh grade. Checking out an AR book was required for a grade and we had to test on the books we checked out even if we didn’t enjoy the book. My english teacher was picky, everything had to be just how she wanted it but other than her checking over the students work every five minutes she was good. Science was my favorite class to take and I was so excited to have that class and Rainie, my sister told me she would be a great teacher. Our class had a couple of class clowns in it, but who would have thought the students would end up making our teacher cry? Eighth grade was definitely difficult my science teacher, Mrs Prescott knew what she was doing and boy that made the class then times harder she was willing to do anything to help me out. She was not hesitant to call home to a kids parent in front of the class if the next day there was no homework brought back. Once a month we went on a field trip to E.O Wilson Biophilia and it was always a blast studying different types of animals and learn about the environment. Middle school wasn’t exactly a walk in the park but it was not too far from it.

To me freshmen year can go either way, depends on what middle school you went to. If you went to a school like the one that I went to then the transfer is going to be a pretty difficult because in my middle school there were only 3 periods, english/history, p.e/art, and math/science. So going from 3 periods to 6 the transition is difficult because you are not used to getting homework for more than two classes or taking test for more than two classes. However if you come from a school that has already 6 periods then the transition should be quite easy. In order to adjust to the 9th grade you just need to manage your time properly and most importantly do all your work if you don't want to fail because in high school they are a lot more strict
Now high school can be a big pain in the butt, but in reality, what would you be doing at home if you weren't in school? Probably just sitting down and eating. High school is a big responsibility and a big change. Teacher's don't mean to scare you by giving you a ton of homework they're just getting you ready for the rest of your life because that is their job. You do get a lot of freedom, stress really kicks in and the people in the hallway can get on your nerves, but in the end High School is a great
