    “ Did you have problems as a freshman in High School? If so, what kind? And how did you overcome that problem? “ Sophomore Philip Robinson, at Pocomoke High School, answered with “ My number one problem being a freshman was actually finding my way around the school. I asked a lot of teachers around the school how to get to a certain class.“

    Robinson was also asked, “ How much more harder do classes get from 8th grade to 9th grade? “ He responded with, “ For me classes didn't get much harder but for other people it got much harder, where you can’t fail in middle school in Pocomoke Middle School, people tend to not try their hardest in classes because they think it doesn't count. “ Pocomoke schools should not let happen, because it hurts them when it actually does count.

    Upperclassmen have been in the same school for over 1 year, therefore they should know almost anything to do with school. Robinson wishes that upperclassmen had helped him with either getting around the school or something like that in general. He was asked, “ Has a upperclassmen helped you at all when you were a freshman? “ He responded with, “ Yes, but not a lot.”

    Robinson was also asked, “ How often do you help freshmen now that you are a Sophomore? What do you help them with if you do? “ He replied with, I help freshmen now because that’s how i wanted to be treated as a freshman. I help them with getting around the school, and often i tell them what teacher you can play around with and which ones you can’t.” 

Robinson enjoys helping freshmen feel comfortable at their new school.
