When students know what to expect in high school they will be able to better prepare for the exciting educational years ahead. At The Beekman School, we can offer students a few tips for starting high school:

  • Make a list of what you want in a prospective high school, such as class size and extracurricular activities, and determine your must-haves.
  • Research schools, attend open houses, and fill out applications (keeping deadlines in mind).
  • Talk to your current teachers about skills that you can improve before starting high school.
  • Learn how to use technology to assist you with academics.
  • Develop a method of organizing materials and taking notes for each course.
  • Read two or three books during the summer before high school. Ask your English teacher for suggestions.

With some forward thinking and a few preparations, you will be ready for success in a range of accredited high school courses.
