I just finished my first year of high school. It was really busy as I had a whole lot of actvites going on. One piece of advice, it's good to be involved in high school. But there is also such thing as being to involved. I was in track and field, soccer, in 3 school bands( brass and woodwind player), 2 outside bands, trumpet lessons and piano lessons,plus a whole of homework all at the same time. I missed a lot of classes for sports and band trips and had trouble getting in practice time for lessons. It's great to be involved, but there is something as being too involved!!!!Even though it was a busy year, it was fun to. Just take it slow and easy. And don't wish for the year to be over. Trust me, there'll be a times in college or university were you'll wish you were still in HS.

This is perfect timing! I'm starting high school this August and I'm really excited! I may be taking some advanced classes but I'm not too scared. Thanks GL!

as a high school junior this article is right on! the one thing i've learned that is EXTREMLY important about high school is to love yourself first. if you do that you become confident, get friends (make friends from all groups! it can really help you later down the road!) and you do so much better in school. oh and DON'T procrasinate. i kinda did last year and its a pain trying to get back into things. other then that high school is so much fun! just enjoy it because you only get to be a teenager once!

The whole missing one day of high school is really true. No matter how much I hate school I know if I miss one day, I will be up late trying to get stuff done for the next week. Not worth it, these tips are pretty average though.
