Transferring to a new school is always hard. Saying goodbye to friends and the unspoken promise of security can make anyone tremble. There is the act of finding new classes in a landscape in which you are not familiar, all while being surrounded by strangers. You must learn what new teachers want and expect, even if you are not sure of who they are. Now, imagine having to overcome all of this during the last year of high school.

Hi, my name is Andrea Steward and I am a senior. My life this past year has not been what I had anticipated at all. I expected, like everyone else does, to cruise through the end of high school in familiarity and comfort. Life, however, had another plan in mind.

My older sister Morgan was in a horrible car accident in February of last year. Now, I am not going to go into any gory details, but you can trust me when I say it was bad. This event made my parents decide to pull me out of my private school haven and to enroll me in public school. I went in blind, not having any inkling of what to expect.

Needless to say, I was terrified. I imagined it would be like the movies, and not the good ones. After I stopped getting lost in between Collier and Perricone’s classrooms, I finally began to get over the initial shock. I started to feel at home.

I am lucky. I met my now best friends during my first week. Everyone was so nice, so welcoming, they made me feel at home. The sense of belonging is essential. To belong is what everyone seeks in high school. I am one of the lucky ones. Not only did I have the opportunity to be accepted at Kelly, I have experienced the same here.

LCM is an amazing school. I have never felt regret about my move here. The Journalism class is my refuge. Every single writer on the staff has become my family. I am thankful that I have these guys in my life. Moving schools is difficult, but I would not change a thing.

    Pro : you get a whole new start

    Con : All new people ( may also be a pro )

    Pro : Can hide some info you don’t want out

    Con: Last year and your with all new people

    Its all about how you feel about your school, and the people in it.

    Ps : dont move because one ( or more ) people made you mad, dont let that 1 ( or more ) people kill all the good things there are.

    Hey there. My mother enrolled me to a school that I didn’t want to go to and I heard a lot of negative stuff about that school.

    I settled in well since I’m in the eighth grade. Mom got to be an SGB (School Governing Body) I met really nice friends. Even if the kids smoke in the bathroom that’s high School right. I learned that the kids at the ones who aren’t representing our school fairly although the teacher’s are amazeballs

    My friend told me that they would be leaving next year (we are four in all) . Two of them share a cousin. Their uncle pressurised their mother’s into changing a new high school. Their mother’s are totally in for their daughter’s in going to a difernt school. So the last one is positive about going to a boarding school. Note that my friends weren’t asked of that want to go to a different school their mothers chose for them regardless of whose future it is .

    I told my mom about it and I begged her to go to another school ,any school for that matter but I can’t stay behind. She then starts talking about the expenses such as uniform. What can I do please help me😭😭😭
