I've always been home-schooled and now I am heading to public school...what should I expect?

I've always been home-schooled and now I am heading to public school. I feel like people are really judgy in high school and I am worried what people will think of me. What should I expect?
Dear School Fool, 
Remind yourself that other new kids will be looking for friends and that teasing tends to be less of a problem in high school because many students have outgrown the insecurities behind mean-spiritedness. Be outgoing, and sign up for after-school activities. Also, why not show up for school in an outfit that isn’t so attention-getting? You’re right that people judge by appearances, so it’s not a bad idea to have a lower profile at least the first few days of the new school year.

SERIOUS STUFF? For serious issues, don’t wait. Visit our HELP! page now.
