The Top Ten
This is probably the biggest thing that I can recommend. I get it nobody likes them but if you still do the work you will get points. Even if you don’t finish or something at least turn it in on time because some points is better than a zero. As Nike would say Just. Do. It! - Randomator

I had fun in school sometimes joking with friends and teachers, I graduated in 2017, I miss it sometimes
You’ll be there for 4 years and then it’s all over. You’ll never be able to go back to those days again. Make sure you enjoy your high school days. Build connections and support your other classmates whether it’s football basketball choir band or anything in between
Being on time is important anywhere. I don’t think anything drives a teacher more crazy than when you walk in late. Now sure sometimes you can’t help it but if you can be sure to get there and get your assignments in on time as well. - Randomator
Some teachers are chill about others not so much. - 2storm
I always tried to be on time when I was in high school. - Userguy44

If you don’t understand something be sure to ask. Chances are it will appear again on a test so maybe get help from a teacher even if it means staying after school - Randomator

Personally, I took all AP / advanced classes. I do NOT recommend this.
True I never really overdid my classes
Yeah I'm really bad at this.
If you’re a smart person then I definitely recommend higher level AP/ Honors courses but don’t overdo it. I suggest no more than 2 advanced classes at a time. Any more than that and you will be stressing out about it. Just know your limitations. Shoot for the stars sure but don’t overshoot is what I’m saying
I was hardly absent only was when I was sick or something
I try to never be absent
I know sometimes it’s inevitable but if your home skipping class you aren’t doing yourself any favors. Also if you know you will be absent be sure to let your teachers know ahead of time so they’re aware. But seriously it can hurt to miss even one class.
Like I said earlier High School is all about having fun. Enjoy your 4 years while they last because they go by quickly. Joining a club or sport is a great way to find people who have similar interests to you and a chance to meet new people as well - Randomator
Joining a club or sport can help you explore your interests and make new friends. Plus, colleges like applicants that participate in many extracurricular activities. - Atham

I know it can be hard but try to at least stay awake in class otherwise you will be screwed on the test.
I always did pay attention in class sometimes distractions made it hard to pay attention
If you make a bad grade then it's your own fault.
College is hard. It’s a complicated process but a lot of schools offer concurrent credit so you don’t have to worry about doing anything except your normal class. On top of that you will get a lot of Gen Ed classes knocked out for a way cheaper price.
Yep I've taken 4 so far.
This helps to an extent...
If you want to do anything outside of school make sure you are on top of your grades. Make sure you have everything turned in and you are satisfied with your grades - Randomator
Yep that seems to help. I hate it when teachers won't tell me my grade when I ask. - 2storm
I did if I got to see my report card - trains45
These are skills you will need in life outside of school, so it's important to develop them now in order to get good grades and prepare yourself for adult life. - Atham
This is wrong! If you are being bullied please report it... Bullying can lead to many mental and physical disabilities.
I don’t snitch. I fight.
