Should we be concerned?

Perhaps it's a statement made out of stress? DD started a new school this year, and while she's doing awesome, friends are slow to evolve. She's in a class environment that has K-12 mixed. She relates more to the Senior girls (4 of them) than the ones that are her own age, which is causing stress for her too. She has stated that she feels very lonely right now...she is an only child....and most of the kids around her at school have been friends for a long time or have siblings in the school (it's a small Christian private school of about 60 students). This is all causing a bit of an identity struggle for her, which we're helping with as much as we can. Her old friends she left behind when we moved have just about disappeared completely in the rear view mirror...
Anyone have any comments or suggestions? Ideas as to why DD feels uncomfortable? Thanks!
