Transfer Student Shares Experience

Welcome to Whitesburg, Home of the Lions.  Below is an account of the experience of a new student coming to Whitesburg.

My name is Naomi and this is my experience with transferring to Whitesburg P8.

I was pretty nervous about the whole idea of going to a public school with only homeschool and a bit of online school expereince.  I was nervous about all of the people I would meet and if they would be good or bad people.  I was nervous about the school work and if the homework would be to overbearing or stressful - and at times, it can be.  But after two months of going here and getting the hang of things, I can confidently say that this school has been a gigantic positive turn in my life.

Almost every single person I've met has been kind to me.  My teachers help me when I need it and review things steadily before any type of quiz or test.

I've been at this school less that half a year and I've won student of the month for 8th grade, which is absolutely crazy and I'm still not over it.  But that just proves that if you pay attention, try your hardest and treat everyone nicely, you can achieve great things.  

My teachers are amazing and I'm so thankful for this opportunity to attend Whitesburg P8 and to meet everyone that I have.
