Last week, we interviewed a few 5th graders about how they feel going into middle school. We asked two boys and two girls several questions and had them answer one at a time. To find out what they said, read on.

 

Question: What are you looking forward to (excited for) in middle school?

Girl Answer: Most of the classes.

Girl Answer: My brother is in middle school and I want his teachers.

Boy Answer: Having a five minute break between classes

Boy Answer: Parties and lock-ins.

 

Question: What class do you think you will achieve the most in?

Girl Answer: I don’t really know.

Girl Answer: I don’t know.

Boy Answer: Science because it seems easy. Actually, I change my mind to reading.

Boy Answer: Math is going to have hard quizzes. All of them are hard. I think I will achieve in electives.

 

Question: How do you feel about transitioning from number grades to letter grades?

Girl Answer: I’m looking forward to it because we will have more than four grades. In number grades you can only have two grades that meet standard, three and four.

Girl Answer: I feel like letter grades are harder to understand. I know an A+ or an A is the highest.

Boy Answer: I feel good.

Boy Answer: I feel good because I like letters better than numbers.

 

Question: What makes you the most nervous about middle school?

Girl Answer: Bad grades and homework.

Girl Answer: I feel like I am going to forget a lot of things.

Boy Answer: That we’re going to be with other kids, like older kids in my other classes. It will be scary.

Boy Answer: Everything. The tests and worksheets in middle school.

 

Question: Do you think that middle school will be easier or harder than elementary?

Girl Answer: Harder.

Girl Answer: Harder.

Boy answer: Easier.

Boy Answer: I feel bad because there will be hard quizzes and tests. I’m scared because of all the tests and papers in middle school.

    I think it’s great that you talked to younger students about their views of middle school. Our middle school teachers should read this article in August as they get ready for the next school year.
