What do I need to know starting high school? Topic: High school students homework

Question: I've just moved on to high school, starting ninth grade, and I'm going to a smaller alternative school with about 400+ students. Is there anything that I really need to know? I'm both nervous and excited, and I don't know what's going to happen.

I'm going into grade 12 tomorrow. There really isn't anything you need to know. Just realize that there's a ton of grade 9 students comming and they're probably just as nervous as you are. Nothing will really happen on the first day. Most teachers will just talk to you and try to get to know you. Unless you had my strict math teacher who gave us homework as soon as we got in. The teachers are probably just as nervous as you are seeing as how they need to teach a bunch of new people that don't know much about high school. So just try to relax and enjoy it.

High school is a pretty big change, but its not too bad :D Freshman year is still pretty chill, just watch out for the seniors ;} Don't worry about not making friends, most people are in a class with only a couple of their friends anyways. lol, its really not that bad. (don't watch too much t.v. or read too much books) If you want you can join a sport or club, that usually lets you meet lots of people to hang out with. Don't be weird or mean (self-explanatory) As long as your semi-normal you should be able to find a group you feel comfortable with. Listen during class (it really helps) and do your homework, nothing is really that hard High schools only as fun as you make it :D Good luck!

I couldn't tell you... because I'm a freshman too :P I'd say, just go with the flow... be yourself... & do all of your homework. [trust me, the homework will pay off] don't get too caught up with boys, or drama. It's not worth it. & i go to a small school too! About 600 students in total. The good thing about being in a smaller school is that you'll probably get to know everybody. I know a good share of the school already & i've only been in school for a few weeks. Good luck in high-school!

When starting high school you want to be as organized as you can. I recommend you get a binder and notebook for each seperate class. You will get tons more homework than in junior high, and the expectations will be higher. Good luck and i hope you have a graet year!

Just make sure you do your homework. That's what kills everyone grades. Organization is an issue as well, but not as much. Besides that, try to be a bit more outgoing, etc etc, you will meet new people and have a good time.

I totally know how you feel. Starting a new school can be rough. Freshman year was pretty good. The things that will really make a difference are simple. 1. Don't be afraid to ask questions. If you need help finding a class or with homework, it's better to ask than to wander around lost. 2. Take chances. Since you're in band, you'll have lots of chances to try out for special groups, solos, etc. Don't let the fact that you THINK you can't do it stop you from trying. Even if you don't make it, you'll have the experience and it'll build you're self-confidence. 3. Look for other shy or lonely people. There are lots of different people in high school. Meet as many as you can. You don't have to best friends with all of them (and you probably won't) but at least you'll have someone to sit with at lunch or work on a project with. 4. Don't overwhelm yourself. If you don't think you can handle a class, get out of it now, but don't use that as an excuse to not challenge yourself. Try as many things as you can, and don't take easy classes just so you can get an 'A.' 5. Take it seriously, but don't stress out about it. Have fun. Don't spend so much time worrying about it. Worry takes the fun out of everything. You'll be fine. If you're a straight A student now, you probably will be in high school.
