It’s that time of the year again, where kids are getting up earlier and parents are throwing their own parties. It’s the start of the “School Season” and while a lot of you might me going back to high school or going to high school for the first time, here are some things that every high school student needs to know:
1. Know How to Get Around in the Hallways
A lot of upperclassmen Everyone will get mad at you if you walk side-by-side with your friends and create a barricade through the hallway. Learn how to do it right, or find a way to get to class that has less traffic. Also, don’t fight against the stream of people. Go with the flow.
2. Don’t Try to Outsmart the Teachers
Now, this might not apply to all teachers, but when dealing with most, they like to think that they’re the only ones who know how to teach their subject, so it’s best to just lay low and pretend like they are all-knowing. *Also, if the teacher has made a mistake, just make note of the right answer in your notes and don’t say a peep (I learned that last part the hard way).
Get there first because it is first come, first serve, and if you go to a big school like I do, the healthy and appetizing things are gone in the first 5 minutes. Simple as that.
Join as many clubs that you can because that’s where you make the friends that will stick with you all four years. If you’re into being a part of a family, I would suggest drama club, if your school has one. If your school doesn’t have a club that you’re interested in, create your own! That’s what I did, and my school had 52 clubs!
Unless you’re talking about your relationship with friends, family, or food, you don’t need it. I honestly have to say that relationships are overrated. High school is the time to learn and grow and how can you do that if you’re attached at the hip with your significant other?! Just stick to the three f’s: friends, family, and food.
In my opinion, the best thing to do is keep your phone in your backpack on vibrate. That way you, if it goes off, you won’t know until a passing period, and your teachers can’t take it. Many teachers will let you use your phones or keep it on your desk (if you’re in higher level classes) but it’s best for your GPA and respectful to your teacher to keep it out of sight and out of mind.
