How does high school differ from middle school? Non attendance impact grades significantly Treated as a young adult responsible for actions and decisions The teacher/student relationship is a partnership. You need to talk to your teachers Less drama and rumors. Fighting and “drama” are considered immature Transition; Freedom, Opportunity, Self-Respect
Freedom and Responsibility More independence with choosing classes Choosing career path Personal choices - Peers, work habits Special events, Dances Clubs / Activities Sports Tech Prep classes Running Start
Advice from Counselors Take the most rigorous classes you can (it looks good to colleges when you challenge yourself) Maintain highest grades possible (transcript) Get involved (sports/clubs) Develop clear goals for your future Begin networking with your teachers, counselors, coaches, etc…
Advice from counselors continues... Cell Phones and Time Management Reminders and alarms are some of the most useful tools on a cell phone, but they are also the least appreciated. Most cell phones come with a scheduler to allow you to set an alarm at a certain time of day or on a certain date. You can set alarms to remind you of an established daily homework time to keep you from chatting right through your work time. You could also use calendar reminders to notify you when projects and assignments are due. These reminders can be set up weeks and months ahead of time. Once you get into the habit, you'll find it very effective.
