High School Survival Guide
Maddie Shields & Haevyn Risley
1. Make friends with the new kids
2. Always stay on top of your school work & never procrastinate
3. Be careful what you say
High School is a time you get a lot more freedom. More than you are use to. With this freedom comes responsibility. However none of us are perfect. We all have to be careful because one bad decision could ruin what people think of you.
4. Image does not mean everything (but it means a lot)
5. Be involved
There are so many clubs and extracurricular activities to join in high school here are a few:
- Spanish Club
- Student Council
- Student Senate
- Cheer leading
- Spirit Club
6. Get the hard classes out of the way (before the senioritis plague hits you and takes you down)
(If you are one of the freshman who walked into the school the first day talking about how ready you are to graduate. All we can say is..good luck. You will need it. The road ahead will be especially long for you. You are too far gone for our advice to benefit you)
7. Make Sure to Dress appropriately
8. he loves me he loves me not
9. Be respectful to everyone & everything
10. Be organized & Friendly to the smart ones (You may need them)
Those kids you called nerds in middle school because they liked to study. When you get in high school you might consider making friends or perhaps bribing them with a calculator or some sharp pencils. Trust us, you will want them on your side. You will soon find out you are now in a land where big brains reign supreme.
You will also soon find out being organized seems to be a lost cause for most high school kids but for the few that do decide to even put their papers in a folder...it makes a difference. Planners are vital for keeping on top of eight classes of homework. Nothing is easier than looking at a little box to find all of your homework as opposed to flipping through a folder for 30 minutes.
