Welcome Hamilton Class of 2021! The first year of high school may seem daunting at first, but here are some tips to get you through the year. Off the bat, remember to attend Freshman Orientation with Link Crew! First, prepare for finals. Tanner Saddi, a senior at Hamilton explained, “Freshmen will never have experienced something like high school finals.” He also advised newcomers not to procrastinate. As he bluntly put it, “It will ruin your grade.”Some classes may be difficult at first as well, so it is suggested to take tutoring sessions offered by teachers. Gina Sun(12th grade) said, “Tutoring always helps in challenging classes.” She also suggested to start homework as soon as possible because teachers will hand out a lot more than usual. Summer book reports are also assigned every year and because it is worth a substantial amount of points, Jake Young(12) says to do a good job on it and to check teachers’ websites for all the work that is due. 

Freshman year is tough, but it is also, as many seniors point out, the only time in high school to have lots of fun. The year may seem insurmountable, but with perseverance and staying on top of grades and work, it will be an enjoyable and rewarding experience.
