My new school is seriously tough!
Help! I'm going in an advanced school this year, and I don't know what to expect. I don't know anyone there and I wanna do well! The work is gonna be even more challenging. So how can I do well, make friends, and have an awesome year? Please help!
First of all, take a deep breath. Starting any new school is super-scary! And you’re probably sad to leave behind a place where you were getting awesome grades and knew everyone in your class. But once you get used to your new classes, new teachers and new kids, everything will start to feel just as comfortable as your old school.
Don’t forget--if you’re going to an advanced school, that means you’re super-smart and belong there! So give yourself some cred, girl, and remember that you are just as smart as everyone else at your new school. It’s easy to psych yourself out, but everyone else is probably doing the same thing.
Think about the subjects that you enjoy and excel at, and get excited about the aspects of school that make you feel like the amazing, confident girl you are! The best way to do well at your new school is to be passionate about what you’re doing, and have fun with it! You’ll be acing those tests before you know it.
