The New Girl Code: Going from private to public
Hey girlie, while you may be nervous about making the switch, public and private schools are a lot more similar than you may think. Sure, your private school was probably a lot smaller than your new school will be, but that can actually be a good thing. More people means more opportunities to meet a diverse group of friends, instead of just sticking with the same group of besties you’ve known forever. You’ll meet and become friends with people you may have previously written off, so take this as a chance to expand your group of BFFs.
Just like at your private school, you’ll become close with some people and not so close with others. The kids in public school are just as smart, sporty, and friendly as those in private school, and you’ll soon find the group you fit in best with. No matter what type of school you went to last year, everyone’s a little nervous on the first day and just wants to make friends. So, if you put a big smile on your face and act confident, you’ll make friends in no time.
