Cheyenne B., eighth-grader, East Middle School
I go to East Middle, I’m in the academy, the top part, the science, math and technology academy. I’m going into eighth grade. WS: And how are you feeling about going back (last Wednesday)? CB: Well I’m a little bit happy and excited, but I’m also nervous. I’m happy because I get to see my friends again and see what the school year has to bring this year. But I’m not excited because I don’t want to deal with all the tests, all the homework, and seeing all the people I don’t like again.
