Message To a New Maker

Describe a piece of advice you wish you heard on your first day at Maker?

The first week is not what you’d expect;

So let’s get one thing straight before I answer this question. I am not saying that this school is bad, I think it is a great school for how far it has gotten in the past three years.

Okay, so the first week of school may not be what some of you would expect, it starts out pretty hecktic, the classes would be chaotic and to be honest, lunch was not enjoyable either because there would be no where to sit. Since you probably haven’t made that many close friends yet, you are left being a wallflower. Once the week is over and everything is calm, it would seem like a normal school so take my word for it when I say that the first week is not stable.

How would this have helped you be successful in school?

This advice would help me be successful in school because it helps me know that school would seem more fun if I knew how high school was really like.

How would this have helped you be successful outside of school?

This would help me be successful outside of school because if I could adapt to a new school over time knowing that things would get better then I can adapt anywhere.

Would you have listened to the advice in September? Why or why not?

I think I would’ve listened to the advice in September because I would’ve taken any advice that helps me get through all the madness of that week but because I also think that the first impressions of the school were not how I would think they would be.

Describe what you would have changed if you had heard and listened to the advice.

I would’ve changed my thoughts on this school in the first week because I didn’t know what to expect since I’ve only seen movies of what high school is like.

How will this advice affect your experience as a 10th grader at Maker next year?

This advice would affect my experience as a 10th grader at Maker next year because I shouldn’t be surprised of how the first week of school is like considering that it would probably be crazy.

Good luck!
