Finals Week Brings Tests and Stress to Students


Nola Miller

Nearing the end of the year, students finish up finals. This is a stressful time of year for most. Finals are held during the last half week of school. Monday were hours one-seven for 25 minutes and then fourth and sixth-hour finals for an hour and a half to finish off the day. Tuesday was hours one, three, advisory and hour five. Wednesday is a half-day with hours two and seven with a 15-minute break in between. 

Sophomore Carolina De La Fuente explains her frustration. 

“Finals are based on what we’ve been learning throughout the year and you pretty much have to ace it to get a good grade,” De La Fuente says. 

Keeping up with your all seven classes towards the end of the year is tough for a lot of students. These finals are very different from the ones taken in the winter. They are the final grade of the year. 

“The knowledge of the whole year is put into one paper and it’s really tough to remember all the things I worked on months ago,” sophomore Finn Houlahan said.

With this being the last grade of the semester, it puts a lot more stress on students making them more nervous and anxious to get done so that they can go on to summer break.
