We all know that high school is one of the biggest part of our lives . What is accomplished in high school is what decides the future that you will be encountering. High school isn’t about who can dress better , who is popular , and who is good-looking.High school is about who can graduate , who will proceed to college, and who will get a job that is worth having. Don’t worry about the other senseless things going on and focus on what you want to become in the future. It is obvious that you don’t always have to focus on school and only that. Having a little fun once in a while doesn’t hurt . Having too much fun may prevent you from reaching your full potential and you WILL regret it later.
Being involved with your school looks good on college applications because it shows leadership and the capability to work with other people.It also shows that you didn’t only managed to get good grades , but also participated in school activities and kept a good GPA. Try to join extra activities beginning your freshman year , sports are also an option. If you never played a sport before , don’t hesitate to try it out and then decide if you want to still participate the following year.Take advantage of all the things that interest you in high school because later on when you take interest , it will be too late.
In some schools there are additional courses available for people that want to challenge themselves. These courses may be AP or IB courses whatever it is take advantage of the opportunity. These courses also challenge you and prepare you for college.Above that you also learn to be organized and how to manage your time wisely.Don’t be afraid to take these classes.I’m sure there are friends willing to help you understand them better.Asking teachers for extra help is also another option so you wont fall back behind with the subject. Go ahead and be a risk-taker! It will all pay off in the end if you try and remember that “the only failure in life is the failure to try”.
