Freshmen Survey Article

Even though the school year has just recently started, the freshmen class already have their own opinions on their experience so far. During this past week, I surveyed the freshmen’s by having them answer five questions about their school experience so far, in each of their health classes.

In the first question, I asked them, “On a scale of 1 to 5, how has your experience at this school been so far?” Not surprisingly most scaled their experience as a 4 (26) with only four people rating their experience with as a five. For the second highest rating, only 18 students checked 3. Luckily only 13 students said that their experience at this school was a one, hopefully for those 13 students the school improves to their fancy.  Finally, 12 people stated that their experience was a 2. Most students are saying their experience is a 4, which means the school has given a large amount of new incoming freshmen a great start to their high school career.

The second question I asked, was if they believed that they are more mature now than back when they were in 7th grade. A large quantity of them circled yes, with only 23 believing they are not more mature or as one individual stated, “I was always mature.” Also, a lot of individuals were undecided, as around 10 students decided to circle, “Or.”

For the third question, I asked them to personally rate their teachers so far this year. Luckily for the school, 25 rated the teachers here as “good.” Only two individuals said the teachers they have are “poor”. 17 students stated that their teachers were “average.” Nine students pronounced their teachers as “excellent” in their eyes. Ten more declared, that their teachers were “very good”.

In the fourth question i asked, which class is their favorite, surprisingly to me, majority of them stated math. Usually, math is a hated subject due to its complexity, so it was unusual to me why a lot would choose that class. The second most beloved freshmen class was of course, their elective. Three individuals said they have no favorite class. The rest of the classes (science, english, and health) received a decent amount of votes.

Lastly, I questioned, if the Freshmen believed that they were better than the Seniors this year. It was a pretty close tie. The no’s beat the yes’s by three votes. This means that a large amount of the freshmen class consider themselves better than their upperclassmen. The only way to prove themselves right, is for them to win the spirit cup in the end of the year. The seniors easily triumphed last year as winners.
