A group of freshmen walks through the rotunda as part of a tour included in 2017 Freshman Flight School on Wednesday, August 9, 2017.

The class of 2021 made its debut at the school with Wednesday’s Freshman Flight School with freshman split into groups and given a tour around campus, where they learned tips and tricks for going to high school, and were introduced to clubs the school has to offer.

“It was very helpful just to see the atmosphere of the school and how to get around,” freshman Caroline Moore said. “It was comforting to get the chance to see where I will be spending the next four years of my life.”

For some, the transition between middle school and high school is difficult, but Flight School was aimed at alleviating nerves.

“I learned that high school isn’t as bad as you think it is,” freshman Chris Xiao said. “It’s going to be more challenging, and you’re going to be doing a lot to get into college, so a part of me is [excited], but a part of me is still stressed out”

For freshman Jia Kanar, Flight School helped prepare for what will be encountered starting Aug. 21 and the first day of school.

“It gave me a better understanding of high school,” freshman Jia Kanar said. “I think I’m going to have to take [high school] a lot more seriously, but I can’t really change what’s going to happen, so I just have to conquer it.”
