How has third quarter gone, in your eyes?
“Third quarter was really hard for me because it’s mostly the time people are finding out from colleges. Some of my schools don’t have a concrete date when I hear back and I could find out any time, so I’m constantly on edge,” said Mr. Mitchell Thompson, senior.
“I can only speak for myself, but I have definitely seen an increase in students coming in to talk to me this quarter, especially seniors. They are not only worried about leaving for college but also being independent and on your own can be scary. I’m also seeing a lot of students coming in that I don’t regularly see because of pressure and stress,” said Mrs. Jennifer Cave, social worker.
“Third quarter has been harder than the others for sure. I’m getting more used to my workload now that it is coming to an end, and I’m trying to adapt as much as possible to the harder academics,” said Angelie Saguinsin, sophomore.
“Third quarter has been pretty normal, I haven’t noticed much of a difference between other quarters. There aren’t many students desperately trying to get stuff in. I don’t think the content and material difficulty has increased,” said Mr. John Williams, science teacher.
“I think a lot of the stress of third quarter is because we’re so mentally drained by this point. Although the academics are a little harder this quarter, everyone is just burnt out and that’s why it feels ten times worse than it really is,” said Rizwan Zaheer, junior.
