Well in 7th grade, your principle is sorta sweet and innocent to you right? I mean.. your new to the school and you barely know the rules so he should be nice right? NO. In 8th grade, you are basically the ruler and superior grade. There's only two grades in my middle school anyway, so when you get to 8th, he or she we expect the most out of you. It's a softer military school to you in 8th grade. Especially with a principle like mine.
Teachers And Their Pets
I wouldn't get excited about your teachers! When you meet them, they are pretty nice, but some... some are tricky. They'll have high expectations, give tons of homework and treat their 'teachers pets' with the highest respect. Unlike you who will just drown in the waves of homework while the 'pet' is drooling suck-up slobber and acting 'good'. Try not to be a teachers pet though, your classmates will thank you and your physical health will too. Bullies don't like teacher's pets to well.
