Congratulations! You are one step closer to finishing your schooling career and is almost ready to head to college! Trust me, four years will pass so quickly that you don't want it to end. There are so much memories to make, so much friends and love, so much homework and tests, and other great things! You have to know to not label yourself as others. For example, "OMG, he is so hot...Look at that nerd over there, he ain't never going to get a girl." Those hurt feelings, plus you don't want to label yourself too. It will hurt you in the inside. So, be organized! Know what you have to do, do what you need to do! Do not procasinate. When you are doing your homework or studying for a test, don't be in a room with a TV, cellphone, computer (unless needed). They will distract you and you will not be able to finish! Remember, if you do not do one homework assignment...the class is one step ahead of you. Also, make sure to not be absent. If you are, it isn't like middle school. It will be much harder to make up what you missed. High school is also a block schedule. So you have all your classes in one day. Make sure to label, file, organize everything. Do not keep your backpack unorganized. Do not spread rumors, because they spread like wildfire. If someone tries to tell you a rumor say, "No thanks, or I don't want to hear it." Take care and remember high school is a rollercoaster but you will get over it. Make a lot of memories, join lots of sports and clubs, and do your homework. God bless you hun.

You shouldn't worry yourself too much :D it's only natural that you feel a little bit scared. I started last year and I remember not even wanting to get out of the car when my mom was dropping me off. But as the year continued me and the friends I had from middle school were hanging out again so it didn't feel much different from high school besides the different terrain; which you get used to quickly. And think about how less of a Challenge it is for you especially when your High school and middle school are connected, so basically you don't get the "joy" of being overwhelmed by what seems like a completely new world. But here are some tips: 1.) It's pretty tough the first day because the new experience is so raw, what you can do to ease the sense of being so overwhelmed is to call a friend/friend's to meet up in one place on the first day of school so that way your not branded as a loner; as well as saving the hassle of trying to find someone you know. 2.) Don't look at your watch or phone too much to see how long it is until school gets out. Because if you do that it will seem as if the day will drag on longer than it actually is. (And it's your first day so it's already pretty long) 3.) Try and be social with other students (when I say social I DON'T mean socialize when the teacher is lecturing) But talking with other students is a great way to get more friends especially when you don't know anyone in the class. Well that's all the advice I can give right now. So good luck! :D

Freshman year; 1. Be yourself, it’s cliché buts it’s also TRUE. Don’t forget that your entering high school as an independent person and will leave high school that very same way; so don’t let anyone’s problem interfere with you and your life (socially and academically) 2. MAKE SURE; you go to your school’s orientation. Unless you have an emergency it’s not something that you should miss out on. They will tell you everything that you need to know. You might also receive: school schedules, class schedules, maps, sign-ups, and information about the school itself. IF you miss it then please call the school to try and get these things a little earlier so that you don’t run into problems the first day of school. 3. It’s good to have your own style and as you move up, you will realize that. But if your still a little concerned about common styles in high school, here are some: Shorts – especially during the summer (beginning of school year) Cami with Cardigan - same, during summer. flip flops - summer Skinny jeans Hollister, Aero, AE, A&F etc. Plaid tops Uggs – during winter Sandals Vans, Converse, Nike Although, I commonly advise one to use their own sense of fashion. 4. Choose the right classes; DO NOT choose a class that you know you can’t handle (such as AP or honors) you will regret it. You might end up failing the class and not get credit; and it can literally destroy your GPA which is pretty tough to bring up. –Try to go for what you can handle, you don’t want to put a lot of stress on yourself during your first year of high school, because you have 3 more years of it. 5. Focus on your grade and don’t procrastinate, that is another thing you will regret near graduation time. 6. BE INVOLVED; Join an extracurricular that you enjoy. Not only will it keep you busy but you might end up making a ton of friends. Or try community service if you want to get that out of the way, if you reach up to a certain amount of hours then you have a better chance at getting a scholarship. 7. Hang with the right crowd and stay away from DRAMA; it comes in all directions so just WATCH OUT. 8. SCHOOL SUPPLIES; It’s best to wait until school starts but I know how stores can run out of stuff easily before school starts, and their deals end quickly. Just try and get the basics. Teachers will say you need highlighters, glue, markers and all that stuff BUT really you don’t . . . its good to keep them at home for projects though. Here are the basics: Notebook Pencils Pen Binder or Folder (I recommend a folder for each class unless the teacher specifically says a binder)

Don't worry. There's no reason to be nervous. I was nervous when I started high school too, but i soon realized it was childish. I guess i was worried about the whole freshman thing and being thrown in the dumpster but nothing happened. I met new friends, became involved and had fun.

some schools have clicques mine dont (private school) sort of crazy in fun and wild way people dont care abt eachother as much as they do in middle schools... *guys* girls get more interested in them (not my case) datings stuff sports basketball league prepareing for the outside world harder subjects and classes need to be more serious than ur now cuz highschool is whats going to count when u want to go to college or uni typical teenage stuff STAY AWAY form drugs and other crap...Focus on ur studies and ur life and NOthing to be scared or nervous of Cause at the end of the day its just a school where you spent 7-8 hrs of ur life with 'kids' who r physically larger than elmenetary or middle school kids

I'm like you when I first started high school. I think just being nice to people around you, offer people help would be a good start, you could practice saying things to yourself first, if you aren't comfortable. You could try to write down your feelings, to understand more about your situations.I know it's not easy, and sometimes people looks angry because they are tired, it's nothing personal. Be patient and try to know your friends better, you don't have to initiate a conversation if you don't feel like it. It's important to be a good listener as well. If you don't know the answer or don't have the assignment when teacher call on you just be honest by simply saying "Sorry, I don't know/ I don't have it) It's not your fault that you don't know the answer and you are showing honesty. Don't blame yourself if any of your friends changed or someone's not being nice to you, it has nothing to do with you. I wish you the best in high school and pray that you will find some good friends.
