Tip #1: Don’t have too many friends. I’m not saying you shouldn’t have friends but not too many because that can cause drama.

Tip #2:  Do your homework on time. It’ll help you in the end. You don’t want to be one of those people who struggle during their last year.

Tip #3: Make sure you are active and social in high school. It’s a sure way to find out what group of people you belong to.

Tip #4: Try to build relationships with your teachers because they’ll be more helpful and understanding towards you.

Tip #5: Try to be positive and hang around positive people as well. I mean,  you’re going to see these kids faces everyday for 4 years. So, be positive. Please.

Tip #6: Keep far away from the ‘Dungeon of Doom’,  or in other words, the Cafeteria. I know it’s tempting, but you’ll regret it later. Trust me.

Tip #7: Don’t over-dress. That’s a bigger issue among females than males. Somehow,  we’ve gotten this idea that school is a fashion show. You don’t have to dress up everyday. You came there for an education, nothing else.

Tip #8: Don’t freak out with the classwork or a test. Just put forth the work and you’ll do fine. You have to STUDY!!!

Tip #9: Please don’t fight. I can not tell you how many fights I’ve  seen, where they ended up looking stupid in the end.

Tip #10: Have fun. Enjoy high school while you can.

So, get in there and be great. You got this!!!
