WELCOME TO HIGHSCHOOL!

Your golden opportunity awaits

High school is so much more than mastering the Pythagorean theorem or analyzing what Shakespeare meant by “To be.” One of the most important things you’ll learn about in high school is yourself. This self-discovery is what transforms you from a child to an adult. Learning about your strengths, your weaknesses, your likes and dislikes. High school also offers you the independence to explore different interests that you might want to pursue in college and beyond. Some may be a dead end while other may lead you to a passion that develops into a career down the road.

So how can you can you take advantage of this four-year journey of self-discovery? Here a couple of ways you can make the most out of high school.

Get involved– High school is so much more than reading, writing and arithmetic. Some of the richest high school experiences come after the final bell. Clubs, sports, theater, student government —they all can teach leadership, teamwork, time management, and responsibility while having fun and meeting new people.

Speak up– Share your opinion in class and outside of it. Sure, it can be scary putting your thoughts and ideas out there but doing so will give you the self-confidence to speak aloud. Others may challenge your opinions. That’s ok. Matter of fact, that’s great. It will expose you to other lines of thinking that can change your opinion or strengthen your own convictions.

Be open to meeting new people– Having a strong group of friends is great but don’t be afraid to meet new people in class, clubs or just in the hallway —especially those that might seem different from you. You never know what you might share in common or, at the very least, you’ll learn to respect the differences in other people.

Ask for help when you need it– High school is a time of immense growth. You come in a child and leave as a young adult. Just as with any other times of growth, there will always be some pains. Whether you’re having trouble with schoolwork, other students, relationships, drugs, alcohol or your just feeling a little lost, there are a number of people around you who can help. Just ask.

High school is an opportunity that comes once in a lifetime. Work hard, have fun and years from now you’ll look back on your high school years with a smile.
