Freshman Guidance

The most important issue in freshmen year is the transition to a new school. Freshmen are understandably anxious about taking new courses, making new friends and having new teachers.

Freshmen face new academic expectations such as more homework and study, long-term projects, and Regents examinations. Guidance counselors help freshmen understand the importance of being organized, developing good study habits, and accepting personal responsibility for their school work, their grades and their behavior.

By working closely with freshmen, their transition to high school is made easier, and that they become truly comfortable in their new surroundings.
