Good to know. I thought I was gonna have 2 give in to the pretty girls in my school. They hate everything about the way I look, and they can't stop picking on me!

The one about not giving in to peer pressure is sooo true. One of my friends is Muslim and she has to wear a head scarf. In the beginning of the year most people were really rude to her and were making fun of her for it/her religion. She held her head high and continued to be her usual nice, funny, awesome self and now she's friends with EVERYONE, even the football players who were the worst (she's really good friends wth the meanest one now). These are all great tips for high school

tips for surviving middle school? in going into 7th grade and i had a HORRIBLE year last year. I had no friends & forgot everything (including my planner, lunch money, pencils, projects and homework). I barely passed the year.
by emroxlol on 7/29/2012 2:27:20 AM
This was extremely helpful! I'm going to be a freshman this year and I'm nervous. This helped though. I'm also excited, I've wanted to be in high school since I was little! Only thing I'm kinda upset about is that there's SO many kids in my high school that they had to take the junior high across the road and turn it into a "freshman center", and build a new jr high somewhere else. So all the freshman will be in a different building than the sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Bummer right? But we're still part of the high school and I'm still excited nonetheless

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!
by rosehuber on 7/24/2012 12:09:58 PM
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!
by iheartu? on 7/24/2012 12:03:02 PM
Ohmygosh thank you thank you thank you GL! I've still got another year to go before high school but I'm the only one in my grade who isn't like...scared about it. Thanks againg for posting this article GL!

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.

I'm so nervous about high school. I'm changing schools but my mom's a teacher there so she knows some of the kids and says they're nice. I'm still so nervous... This helps. Thanks, GL!

the first one says "Do dress to impress" i go to an all girls high school and no one cares about how anyone else looks. it's great. basically it's no make up, messy buns and unshaven legs because there's no boys.

Middle school took about 1 month for me to get used to, but everyone takes their own amount of time

im going into middle school and i was just wondering about how much time it takes to get used to everything?
It won't take long at all. For some people it only takes a day or two, for others maybe a week. But either way, it's nothing to worry about, just enjoy yourself! Jordan S.
