Preparing for High School - Now That You're There

You’re in high school—hurray!  It feels like a huge accomplishment to get through your first day (and it is—go you!), but there are some things to keep in mind as you start at a new school.

Don’t bite off more than you can chew.  Figure out how much time it will take you to do your homework before you sign up for Student Council, Chess Club, and the yearbook staff.  It’s great to be involved, particularly in a new school, and it can help you make new friends.  But you don’t want to feel so overwhelmed that you feel like you can’t accomplish everything.

What Should You Look For in a High School?

So you’re starting high school next year.  For some, that means that you need to look for a new school.  There are so many things to consider: Will I like the other kids?  Can I be on the debate team and the soccer team?  Do they let freshman have roles in the spring play?  But you may not have a good strategy for finding that new school and making sure that you’ve done what you can to be successful in high school.
