Top 10 Tips & Things You Should Know About High School


The Top Ten

1 Don't procrastinate

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 - Ajkloth

Easier said than done, lol. - Elina

2 Don't do drugs

I promise that I will not do that cause I'm a NERD
one vote = if you are a nerd

TRUST ME. It messes with your mind. - Ajkloth

Drugs ruin your life! Don't do them! - RiverClanRocks

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

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

3 Go to orientation (Freshman)

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

If you go to orientation so you can get to know your school, you will be WAY less nervous on the first day of school - Ajkloth

Hell Yes!

4 Don't start rumors & drama

Nobody will like you - Ajkloth

Worst part of school

5 Keep your awkward hobbies to yourself

Nobody wants to know about your booger collection - Ajkloth

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

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.

I hate when people do this, like I don't want to be sitting in detention with y'all for being late!

As an upperclassmen I hate this but honestly we all did this as a freshman come on guys

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.

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. - Ajkloth

I got kicked out of the school lounge by some white trash seniors and they aren't even the teachers or principal so any senior in my school plus us freshmen are better because we are still kids and they are adults - Ihateschool

8 Don't stress out too much

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.

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

9 Don't tap your foot/fingers during class



That's how people get mad you need to just be queit or people will not be happy 😅😅😁😉

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

The Newcomers

? Don’t act like you run the place
? Be careful who you hang out with

Some people will be your friend but some will not

The Contenders

11 Don’t block people’s lockers
12 Always take notes in class

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

13 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.

14 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

15 Don't be late to class

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

16 Do not give into peer pressure.
17 Don't buy elevator passes from other students

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

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. - Ajkloth

My school has a legit working elevator. - Lunala

18 Don't call yourself stupid
19 Be friendly to everyone and smile.

Yes! Do this!

NO - tearest7

20 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.

21 There is no pool on the fourth floor

The pool is near the gym

22 Don't judge people too quickly
23 Be Yourself and Not Like Others
24 There's way more people

It's not like elementary school where you're stuck with the same people. There's a lot more people in high school with many different interests, making it easier to make friends, especially in a club or elective classes.

25 Be yourself
26 Be a quiet student

A lot of people want to be successful in high school and avoid failure this can help show your intelligence and be able to understand what the teacher is teaching in class

27 Don’t stare

Damn high school sounds like a prison.

28 You don’t need attention

€�If all you care is about people know and want to be popular, that is not how school work -love school

29 Don't let others bring you down. It's your opinion that truly matters.

Bullying is a given, I know this because I've chopped and changed schools constantly. I'm going back to one of the ones I was at and am going to not listen to anyone's opinions, I have short hair, I'm not lesbian. (No offense to anyone! ) I'm chubby! Who the hell cares! I am who I am, accept me, or get out of my way because I don't have enough time in my life to deal with your judgy self. 😍

30 Larger than middle school
31 Don’t let anyone borrow your stationery

I let someone borrow a pen and they did not give it back what a b***h

32 Don’t let anyone judge you for who you are
33 Don’t spend time with classmates

This can help avoid drama and bullying from other classmates. This can also help avoid distractions

34 Not everyone will let you slide

Be careful what you say to other people there are some that won’t care while there are others that will actually try to pick a fight with you after school

35 People Will Be Fake

"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.

36 Get involved in activities
