Throughout a students’ eighth grade year, there really isn’t much new to expect. Eighth grade year can go by smoothly if a student can balance school work,  friends, family and after-school activities. This can be very simple: The only secret to that is that a student should not bite off more than they can chew.

Eighth grade classes are extremely fun. The curriculum is so exhilarating. Whether it’s linear equations in math or Greek mythology in English, a student will never be bored. And the teachers make sure to keep it fun and entertaining with interesting projects and class work. An 8th grade student is never bored.

Eighth graders are sure to feel more independent. Teachers don’t walk students step by step through every project, classroom activity and/or homework assignment. Students change classes every single period and teachers expect a student to be prepared for every class. But if a student just makes sure they are prepared for class every day (pens, pencils, homework, etc.) then it should be an easy year.

Out of the four years of middle school, 8th grade is definitely one of the best. There is plenty to do, the classes are fun, and a student is more independent. As long as the student is prepared for everything, they they will be ready for high school in no time, but let’s just take it one step at a time. Enjoy 8th grade!
