Freshmen

Welcome to Saxon Country!

Welcome to Saxon Country!

Your freshman year in high school is an exciting time – full of new experiences.  For many students, high school can be intimidating -- if you don't know what you're doing. But if you know what to expect in high school, it'll be easier to make good friends, ace your classes and be active. Familiarize yourself with the layout and rules of the school before the first day of class, be outgoing during and after class, build a solid study and homework plan, participate in class, and guard against negativity.

Regular and open communication, within the family and with the school counselor, makes this a much easier process and leads to success. Get involved, there are so many things for you to do.  We want you to be an avid and enthusiastic part of Saxon Country!

Everything a freshman needs to know about high school.

Family Connection

Family Connection is a comprehensive website designed for high school students and their parents. It's a great resource for students as they make decisions about academic plans, colleges, and careers. Family Connection is linked with Counselor's Office, a service used in our school counseling offices to track and analyze data about college and career plans. We encourage you to use this valuable tool.
