The Top Ten

1 Go to orientation (Freshman)

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!

2 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

4 Don't do drugs

TRUST ME. It messes with your mind. - Ajkloth

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

Drugs are bad m'kay? - Zplatter360

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

5 Don't stress out too much

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

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.

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

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.

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.

GO TO THE SIDE OF THE HALLWAY!
What's worse is when people stop in the middle of the stairs. - Ajkloth

7 Keep your awkward hobbies to yourself

Nobody wants to know about your booger collection - Ajkloth

8 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

Some them do, but most mind their own business. If they do bully the Freshmen then they are just misfits with low self esteem. - NikoX

9 Don't tap your foot/fingers during class
10 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. - Ajkloth

The Contenders

11 Be friendly to everyone and smile.

Yes! Do this!

NO - tearest7

12 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.

13 Don't be late to class
14 There is no recess

There's no recess in middle school, either.

15 If you hate who you were in middle school, this is a time where you can reinvent yourself.
16 Do NOT give into peer pressure.
17 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.

18 Don't call yourself stupid
19 Larger than middle school
