The year has felt different and only a couple of weeks have passed. The course of this year is running differently than last school year. There is more work, more expectations and it’s putting quite the stress on students especially with college classes and going to sleep late because of the homework assigned.
Students at Jimmy Carter Early College High School can agree that this year is going to be challenging, but with hard work, they are going to make it through by committing the time and effort to be successful.
Livan Garcia said, “I don’t know, last year was cool, the experience was great I absolutely loved it. This year seems too overwhelming especially with all of the college classes and regular classes. It’s not too much; we are supposed to be able to handle it, we will get through it; I know we will.”
Other students had different mindsets about the school year, all the work and how it’s going to all go down throughout the year.
Half of the first semester hasn’t even passed, and students have already been complaining about how much we have to do and that the year is too hard.
Michael Del Angel said, “I can’t wait until this is all over with so I can get my 60 hours and graduate so I can make a lot of money doing what I love, but I have to do everything I can for my education no matter what it takes.”
Although the work is challenging, the students agree the that the teachers are spectacular and would not be able to make it without them. The teachers have helped out so much, they have explained well, as well as they understand that we can’t do everything and let us do group activities. Therefore this year may be more stress compared to last year and more difficult, but with great effort and excellent teachers to support us, it helps a lot to know we aren’t alone.
