This year a large number of Grade 9 students arrived at Milton District High School. Many Grade 9 students have said that going into High School has been a big change from being in elementary school, but they enjoy high school much more. When asked about their new experiences there was a variety of reasons the Grade 9 students were enjoying themselves. The change to the semester system has been a welcomed one. Instead of having to deal with six subjects at a time students can now focus all their attention on just four which makes it easier to study. A large number of Grade 9’s are taking ninth credit music and enjoying it very much. They say it’s a fun way to spend half their lunch period and enjoy the fast paced learning experience. Most important, the Grade 9 students stressed how happy they are to meet so many new friends. They look forward to the next four years of being a Mustang.
