    Find your voice


    Middle school and high school are all about figuring out what you love. Try new activities—join a team, club or choir. You’ll meet a wide range of people who you probably wouldn’t have gotten to know by just sitting in math class.

    Turn friends into family

    Zoey 101

    Whether you go to boarding school or just miss the fam throughout the long school day, surround yourself with besties that’ll help you get through thick and thin. When you’re having a tough day and can’t hug your mom, turn to a trusted friend like Zoey or Chase.

    Sing it out


    When something’s bothering you at school, take a break at home and turn it into a song like Addie does. Write down your worries, and you’ll release the stress of tests and drama, feeling better in no time.

    Have a laugh

    Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide

    Even an average school day can be full of adventures and problem-solving. Whether you’ve forgotten your homework, can’t get a hall pass or accidentally caused your science project to explode, laugh it off. At the end of the day, things def could’ve gone worse.

    Stay energized

    Wizards of Waverly Place

    If you have an after school activity (like wizard class, of course), make sure to grab a snack at the local sandwich shop or school cafeteria. Refill your water bottle, and you’re ready to go.

    Share your skills

    Suite Life on Deck

    Cody seems to have the advantage in the classroom. But if someone else needs advice when it comes to test taking or project making (like Zack or London), he’s sorta willing to help. Form study groups so everyone who’s willing to work hard for a grade is able to benefit.

    Be a balanced babe

    The Carries Diaries

    Carrie learns to balance schoolwork, a NYC internship, home life and friends. If she can do it, so can you. It’s all about making time for what’s important (while still looking fabulous, of course).
