Top 10 Tips & Things You Should Know About High School

The Top Ten
1 Don't do drugs

How about: picture the scene: somebody broke a chair and everybody thinks it is you. Don't contradict them, make yourself guilty,
even though you just saw the broken chair and did not break it.
That is how to live life: make yourself the criminal.

Drugs will ruin your life. A section of my friends do drugs and I personally try to get them to stop. It is no use, they are already addicted. Don't think it won't happen to you.

Drugs are a bad habit so you should not do it because it will kill you!

Do drugs its fun! Do it in the bathroom, smoke weed everyday like me

Yeah because cannabis brainwashes you, reprograms your brain so that you think it is good and get more.

2 Don't procrastinate

Yeah you gotta learn how to grind a little bit. If middle school didn’t teach you already high school will be a tough time for you

Most of the people in my class really need to know this! High school isn't like elementary school where if you don't do your homework, teachers will let you off the hook and give you a bunch of extensions.

Procrastination is when you wait until the last minute to do homework

Yeah procrastination will kill you. Figuratively.

3 Go to orientation (Freshman)

My high school serves free pizza to the incoming freshmen during orientations

Definitely makes you feel better about that first day with the entire school

Yeah orientation makes a huge difference.

Hell Yes!

4 Don't start rumors & drama

Even if you try your best to stay neutral, drama will find a way to get to you

The worst part was drama or rumors of someone

Nobody will like you

Worst part of school

5 Keep your awkward hobbies to yourself

Nobody wants to know about your booger collection

6 Don't stop in the middle of the hallway and chat with your friends

Usually when I want to talk to someone I usually just walk with them, go to their locker, talk in either of our classroom doors, or if I am walking in the opposite direction I just pull a U turn.

This happens all the time in my middle school and most of the people in my grade are super loud. I hate being classified with those people.

They do this in high schools as well. I dislike it usually because it causes people to get in the way when you need to go someplace.

This will a lot in my school and I end up late to classes because people won't move and it causes a traffic jam in the hallway.

7 Upperclassmen don't bully the freshman

Sophomores may make fun of the freshman a little bit but the juniors and seniors definitely don't care enough to do anything to them. If the freshman don't bother the seniors, the seniors won't bother the freshman.

This is why bullying is bad and should be stopped.

Actually only the Sophomores do that.

Ruins the freshmans confidence and self esteem.

8 Don't stress out too much

Yeah people will just stress themselves out. It isn't even that bad, High School is actually fun in my opinion. Just enjoy it.

Highschool is only four years of your life and after you graduate, you'll probably just forget about it.

People say I stress out way to much and I'm in the 7th grade. Can't wait to see what high school is like.

High school was sometimes stressful sometimes it wasn't just depends on what day it was

9 If you hate who you were in middle school, this is a time where you can reinvent yourself.

Yeah I had a teacher freshman year who once said. Your grades in Middle school don’t mean anything. Everybody gets a clean slate in high school

Yep no grades count.

10 Always take notes in class

Always get the important stuff down. Make sure your notes are organized so you can use them to study

What if one day your teacher says that you have a suprise test but you can only use your notes that you took in class?

I always take notes unless it is a easy class.

Especially if your grades are low... writing facts on paper is like writing them into your head.

The Contenders
11 Don’t block people’s lockers

I don't have a problem with this. I just ask the person to move or I just wait. One time though I had to talk to one of my teachers about something and I was running late for a class and the teacher forgot to give me a note and when I got to my locker this one dude was getting something from his bottom locker. I could tell he had a physical disability and when I tried to help him get his books he just declined me, so I had to wait about a minute. I ended up being about a minute late for class, but thankfully my teacher was cool and I didn't get in-school or a write-off for being late.

This annoying when someone is especially if you're running late

Literally nobody uses their lockers in my school

Kinda awkard lol

12 Don't tap your foot/fingers during class

It is really annoying.

It can be annoying

please

that's one way to get beat up.

13 Do not give into peer pressure.

Peer Pressure can cause a LOT of damage to you and the people around you.

Because it actually helps you or your friend to not get in a bad sticky sitiuation

14 If you hate one of your teachers, chances are you will only ever have him/her for the one semester

Same with the students. You might not even see them again after that semester.

15 Don’t date seniors

Ok thanks for that becuse I was thinking about it

Is there a reason why?

16 Not everyone will like you and want to be your friend

Not everyone is going to like you. but it really doesn't matter, think about what you do have, not what you don't

Learnt that the hard way

17 Don't buy elevator passes from other students

The elevator passes are fake.
It's a trick that my dad played on the freshman when he was a senior, and it worked!... But he got in a little bit of trouble.

My high school had elevators but most of the students were not allowed to use them.

My school has a legit working elevator.

that's just- ya know?

18 Don't be late to class

In my high school if you were late for even 1 millisecond you automatically get detention

Last year my school had a rule where if you’re late you have to go to the office and get a tardy pass and then go back to class because after the bell all the doors are supposed to be locked

19 There is no recess

Recess I learnt what that was from American television shows, it looks little kiddy. What next do you want toy day?

There's no recess in middle school, either.

I have recess in my middle school

No reccess there is study time though.

20 Cut off any bad influences

Trust me, you don't want to be near or seen with anyone you know is considered a bad influence because the company you keep is the company you get and no one will want to hang out with you.

21 Be friendly to everyone and smile.

You don't have to be all bubbly to EVERY single person and No one expects you to just don't be mean or ignorant.

22 Don’t act like you run the place

Yea because that's extremely annoying and can cause you to get some bad attention.

Its really annoying

23 People will be fake

Not everyone is going to be a "True" friend. Fake People are always gonna be around you might as well get used to it.

"must be people that are your friends will stop being your friend in high school or middle school.the best thing to do is not worry about it and move on.

24 Don't judge people too quickly
25 Don't call yourself stupid
