These are high school tips for freshmen, or what we call in more gender-neutral language, first-year students. 

When you graduate middle school, it can be nerve-racking to think about what high school would be like or what YOU would be like.

High school is the last four years of primary school and oftentimes, are the hardest.

This can be due to several external or internal factors. 

High school can be a difficult four years if you are not focused on the right things. In high school, getting caught up in the wrong things such as dating, drama, and friendships is easy. That’s why in today’s article, I’m going to be giving you some high school tips and tricks.

High school tip #1:  pay attention to your circle

In the movies and shows, you see teens with huge cliques and friend groups, but high school is nothing like that.

Of course, people have their groups but it’s not like how movies portray it to be. Also, it’s good to keep in mind that having a lot of friends can make or break you. For example, if you have a large group of friends who are constantly in drama and picking fights with people, that will soon travel to you. I would like to also tell you that it’s okay to cut people off who no longer serve you or old friends that you grew apart from.

High school tip #2:  stay focused on the work at hand

Although high school can be fun and full of new experiences, remember what you are supposed to do. You are there to gain an education and set yourself up for the future, even if you don’t pursue college most jobs will require a diploma and GED.

By practicing, you might learn the basics of time management and the art of mastering routines. You could also learn how to have a healthy balance of social media use and figure out how to use it for the best. 

High school tip #3:  participate in events even if you don’t feel the need to

I know that homecoming or prom sounds scary and even walking across the stage might be as well, but I would recommend doing so. I never went to homecoming and wish I did. At least go to one prom. I would recommend doing everything that happens senior year because you may regret it later in life, but in all honesty, it’s truly up to you. 

At the end of the day, high school is what you make it.

If you do what you’re supposed to do for the most part, you will be fine. It’s okay to make mistakes but make sure you learn from those mistakes, stay positive, and focus on what’s important.

High school tip #4:  organize your time

You will do yourself a big favor if you get organized. Invest in a planner or use a digital calendar to keep track of assignments, deadlines, and important dates.  This will help you with everything, including waking up and getting to class on time.

It doesn’t matter if you use your phone, computer, clock, paper planner, or all of the above-as long as you use something!

Write things down, get used to having a schedule, and even plan your meals and social time.  Make sure you get enough sleep and that you allow time for rest and chilling out.

High school tip #5:  get help

Most colleges are full of resources to help you, especially during your first year.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help, ask questions, or seek assistance when you need it.

Your teachers, counselors, and peers are there to support you.

Your family and friends can also help you during your first year.  It may be helpful to identify a high school or college mentor, too.

And if you ever feel like you are in crisis, you can call the 988 crisis line to speak to someone.

Something to think about

Remember, high school is a time for growth and learning. By following these tips, you can set yourself up for a successful first year.

Many people have mixed feelings about going to college.  And there is often a lot of expectations and pressure.  As a young adult, you may have difficulties with managing your emotions, self-control, and time management.  This is normal

If you are currently a college graduate, what would you tell your former first-year self?  What advice would you give her to help her feel more comfortable and do better?  What advice do you have for new students?  What makes the first year in college difficult?
