Starting a new school after a summer move

I’m really nervous about making friends and getting comfortable at my new school. Can you help me out?

I have lived in Ohio for a little over a year now. Last summer my 'rents gave me a choice if i wanted to go back to Catholic School again for one more year i did because i knew my friends would be heartbroken if i just suddenly didn't come back. So this year i am going to public school i am afraid that i will be in shock. People are telling me don't worry about it you will be fine. but that only makes me worry more and i hate worrying.

Hey girls! If you like to read, write or both could you please join my club "Bookworms & Writers"? I am trying to reach at-least 55 members by the end of the week and right now I'm at 43. I would really appreciate your help! Smile

OK so school will be starting soon and my nerves are starting to get to me.Since i'm afraid I am gonna end up in a class with the guy i have a crush on(Since the ending of 5th grade)and plus he knows I like him.Also I think in 8th grade you study U.S History,and i'm the worst at history.I have no clue what to do.I don't feel like the world's gonna end but I feel like it's halfway there, but only for me! Frown

hey! it's only natural to feel nervous, but a positive attitude is half the battle toward a great year. If you think thought's like, "I'm gonna study hard and ace history, then you'll be more inclined to try harder than if you're already worried about failing. trust yourself girl, you can do it!

I'm going to be a sophomore in high school this year. Last year, I went to a private high school for the first semester and hated it, so my parents homeschooled me for the second half of the year. Then, they decided I wasn't getting enough social time, so they're having me enroll in another private high school this year. They just told me this morning and school starts the 25th, so I'm SUPER overwhelmed. A couple questions: 1. What's your advice on making new friends? I only know one girl at the school. 2. Do you think I'll be the only one who doesn't know their way around the building the first week? 3. How do I deal with the stress of it all?
Thanks so much, MOD! (:

Hey babe,

1. Be yourself - the best version of yourself possible! It's natural to be nervous on your first day, especially at a brand new school. But that doesn't mean you can't chat with your classmates, go to a new table and ask if you can sit with a friendly-looking group for lunch, or get involved in a new club/sport after school. All of these things will help you become more comfy in the school environment while also making friends!

2. No way! There are other newbies there too, even if you don't meet any of them. Just remember that no school is actually difficult to get around - it just seems that way since you've never been before. You can use this to your advantage though - this is a perf a way to start a convo with someone! Tell them you're looking for Room #___, then say you're new so if they could give you tips on finding your way around, you'd really appreciate it. Remember to smile and be confident (without being pushy).

3. Just breathe! Like I said, it's totally normal to be nervous at first. But once you make it to your classes and you realize that the school day doesn't last forever, you'll start to relax. Once you start chatting with your classmates and realizing that you can make friends if you try a little bit, you'll settle in. You can do it!!

Well, I'm not the new girl in town, but I am going to a new school. I'm going into high school and it's my first I'm attending a public school. I'm not nervous but I am a little shy. Any tips.

I'm moving, too, and leaving all my old friends and school behind. I had such a great two years here, I don't know if my new house will be as good as this one. But this will be my 10th move and if I know how to deal with one thing, it's moving.
Here's a tip - when you move, nobody knows you! So it's a way to start out new! Ever wanted to cut your hair short, or go by Kate instead of Katie? Here's your chance! I'm not saying try to be someone your not (that never works), but start out right this school year, be yourself, and be confident. You'll have friends in no time!

Hey i get it i've moved tons be yourself and be outgoing and you'll be comfortable in no time

I am sure it is stressful but I hope never have to deal with it. I have switched schools before but I knew some of the people so it wasnt that bad, but not knowing anyone would be kind of terrifying.
