High school life

The Accelerated Schools.

I culminated from Animo Jefferson Charter Middle School this past year. It was nerve-wracking but amazing!! I was really sad when I had to say goodbye since I was going to a new school far from everyone else, but it was an excellent way to open new doors. I know that it might sound scary to go from middle school to high school but everything is going to work out in the end.

In middle school, you can slack off a bit but of course, it’s not good for you. In high school you won’t get an extension for an assignment. You have to keep yourself in check and rely on yourself instead of your teachers. I know most teachers say this but it’s true. I came to find out the hard way. I was scared of the transition from middle school but you will come to learn that a fresh start will always be beneficial.

I am now going to Wallis Annenberg High School (aka TAS or WAHS). I started school on August 14. I have made many new friends and it has been amazing so far. The school is pretty big and a drastic change from JMS. One of my struggles in high school is finding all my classes and talking to new people. In JMS it wasn’t too hard because everyone knew each other so going to a larger school has helped me get out of my comfort zone. In JMS I was a quiet student depending on who I was around. I usually kept to myself or my friends. I have overcome this challenge with the help of my new friends. They push me out of my comfort zone and have helped me speak out a little more.

WAHS has a wide range of clubs and sports and it’s really amazing. I have signed up for volleyball and film club. The students and staff have all been very kind. The students are very kind and welcoming. Most students went to the schools connected to Wallis Annenberg High. The staff helps me find my classes and keeps me in check and I am grateful for them. I am starting to get used to my new school and new friends but I miss everyone from JMS. I hope to visit soon.
