Students Adjust to Full Schools

Posted:

With all of the changes and re-arranging of grades to other schools, there's always some things to get used to.

We talked to a few students at Century High School in Bismarck about what they're experiencing now that school is back in session.

"It's a little more crowded and it's also, well a lot of people are walking slower because you're trying to get used to high school."

"It's really crowded, there's a bunch of people, it takes a lot longer to get to classes. And there's a lot more people in each class."

"I don't like that we have the portables outside because it takes up a lot of parking spaces."

"The hallways are really crowded and it's like just really congested all over but it's nice having like different faces that you see."

"It's nice having a long lunch now."

Steve Madler, Principal at Century says in years past, the lunch room was very crowded.

This year they added a third lunch period and also an additional lunch line to accommodate the increase in students.

He also says that the transition of freshman now being in the school is going smoothly.

"It's natural on the first day, all the students came at about the same time and so that really caused some crowding but now that students kind of know their schedule, they know the classes that they're going to, they're coming in using different doors in the building and so the flow of the building has gone much better since," says Steve Madler, Principal of Century High School, Bismarck.

Even though some schools may have an increased amount of students, they are still under the capacity and meet fire code regulations.
