Four students from Brien McMahon's center for youth leadership lead a group of incoming freshman in an orientation session of High School 101 on Wednesday.  

Students reviewed the school's mission statement, preparing each incoming student with the ins and outs of high school life, focusing on academic, social and civic expectations. 

"Teachers will change their way or grading, some will grade quizzes more than whatever," Hernandez said. "It depends on the teacher a lot of the times, so just get to know your teachers," said incoming junior Nathaly Hernandez.  

"Math is kind of difficult for me," said incoming freshman Elizabeth Murphy. "I get very confused." 

Incoming freshman had the chance meet future classmates, test their knowledge on school policies and ask questions. 

High school students say some of the best advice they could give freshman is to always be prepared for class and not be afraid to ask for help.

"Their biggest fear is getting lost and that's like the first or second day and once you get the hang of that, it's the easiest. Don't slack off for your work. You might think it might get easy and I can handle it later or whatever, but it will just pile on if you let it, so just keep on top of your work."  

Freshman will at Brien McMahon High School will begin the school year August 27th.
