How to Survive Highschool

How to Survive Highschool

This article is for teens struggling to get through highschool.

50% OF LIFE IS JUST SHOWING UP - Go everyday, you would be amazed at the things that you miss when you are not there. Much of life is small steps added together. Many teachers give grades or portions for attendance.

TURN IN SOMETHING - Do your best work for every assignment and turn something in. Even if you do not know how to do it, that is how you learn. You make mistakes, the teacher tells you what is wrong and then you fix it. You are not expected to know how to do everything, you are learning.

NEATNESS COUNTS - You will learn that in life, appearances do matter. Look your best and do the same for your school work.

D's ARE PASSING - You need to pass all of your classes so that you can graduate. You would not believe the minimal amount of effort it takes to get a D. Slightly more and you will get a C. Some real effort will land you a B and going the extra mile will get you an A. Later in life no one will ever ask you what your grades are, but they will ask you if you graduated high school. At least to the minimum, even with all D's you can still get a high school diploma.

ASK FOR HELP - There are guidance counselors for a reason. If you need help, ask for it.
