Dear Carol

Freshman fears: Help! I'm nervous to start high-school (where grades really count)

 
How can I be a better student? Im about to start high school (where grades really count).
Dear Freshman Fears,

Attitude is important, so I applaud you for wanting to kick off high school on a solid note. 

Arrive early and well-rested. Get in the habit of participating in class, rather than sitting in the back and texting friends.  If you get confused in any courses, seek help from teachers. Stay organized, and divide big projects into manageable assignments. Sign up for after school activities to provide a great balance to academics and to make new friends.  

It feels good to be on top of things, and four years from now, it should pay off big-time. 

For serious issues, visit our HELP! page now.
