Three West Middle School Students were interviewed on what their experiences are in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. They gave tips on how to survive middle school.

In 6th grade, the teachers tend to go easy on you. Along with the work, you also have some pretty good friends to go along with you through the journey of the 6th grade. Chase Hodges a WMS sixth-grade-student, gave some simple answers, “Yes, [6th grade] It’s fun.” Chase doesn’t like how long the classes are, but his advice is to “do your work”. That seems to be a common theme for all grade levels. 

7th grade is when you are stuck in the middle of 6th and 8th grade. You’re about to rule the school, but you’re still learning the building at West. Your friendships change, the classwork is harder, and the drama is everywhere. After interviewing Viviana Buzzelli a seventh-grade-student at WMS, I got her dish on 7th grade. Viviana agreed with Chase that she also likes school, but she also said “I don’t like it because like the work is hard.” When asking for tips on what to do she answered, “Like do your work, write down what teachers write down on the board, um and just pay attention. And be a good student and don’t talk during class cause either you will miss something. And turn in your homework and study for tests.” She likes school “because like I can see my friends.” A favorite teacher of hers is, of course, the wonderful Mrs. Grady and her favorite class run by Mrs. Horvath is Journalism.

8th grade, the year you rule the school! Natalie Holmes an eighth-grade-student at WMS  has stated that “Yes, the teachers are really nice, the classes are really fun.” Natalie likes that “the teachers are really nice.” However, Natalie admits that “the workload is stressful in primetime.” Natalie said, “My Favorite classes are Spanish and English. And those are taught by some of my favorite teachers, Mrs. Bridges, and Ms. Williams!” Therefore “Be kind and respectful” she has said.

    I don’t really get all the fuss. Middle school is not that hard, in fact, I think middle school is where it’s at. 1 hour is pretty long but not that long. I just think we need tips for high school, And maybe some running shoes.

    If you think work is hard then you haven’t seen much work.

    Trust me I have French and German once a week and then homework that takes up to an hour for each language but also a test every week in that language
