Try classes and extracurriculars that you might be interested in, expand your horizon. You might regret it if you don't do it.
I think I would advise anyone just started high school to just remain focused on schooling. You can't let your focus slip away from grades, because it will only exponentially decrease. I would also recommend to expand your group of friends. High school is a great time to meet people before you really have to make decisions for your future. Take advantage.
For any incoming freshman, my advice is this; forget everything from middle school because this is a new level where nothing is held back, try anything you're interested in, if you're not confident in your results don't shrug it off but look back and correct your error, and most importantly get friends you know for certain will not disappear after that year.
Priortize gettting your homework done the day its assigned so you dont fall behind.
My advise would be that it's not as scary as it may seem. Any teacher is always there to help you when you need it!
For an incoming freshman, I'd tell them to get out of their comfort zone as much as they can. Id say this because I feel I missed out on a lot due to being scared of leaving my comfort zone.
I would tell an incoming freshman not to take anything for granted. Enjoy the time you have with your friends and make as many memories as possible.
I would tell an incoming freshman to not be too shy and to be nice. Also don't slack its really easy to procrastinate but its not worth it. Also learn cursive, if you only write in cursive no one else can read your handwriting and no one will copy your probably wrong answers anyway. If you can join student council, student council was the one thing in school where I felt I made a tiny difference. Being able to go out into the community to volunteer with your friends is someting a lot of people haven't ever done and its pretty awesome.
Stay organized and your school work will be easier. Also put yourself out there. Do this by talking and building relationships with students and teachers.
Stay involved and don't get behind in school work because it all catches back up to you and your'e left stressed out and not knowing what to do.
I would strongly advise to work really hard your first 3 years of high school so that way when your senior year comes you can relax in your lazy boy chair and not have to worry up a million different classes or how youre going to graduate.
My advice would be to try and do as best as you can your freshman and sophomore years. It is much easier to get an A then than it is to now.
One piece of advice I would give them is to not take the time you get with your friends for granted because it can be taken in a second.
I would tell the incoming freshman not to be shy, because you might miss the chance of meeting a person you never knew you would talk. Also when you are walking down the hallway smile at everyone you never know that could have made there day. Last but not least don' wish your last four years away, let m tell you something they go by quick and then your onto the real world.
Dont wish your time away, graduation will be here before you know it. Take time to do stuff you want to, join clubs, talk with friends, that kind of stuff.
My advice is worry less about the people in/on the phone and more about those in the flesh. Life moves so fast and you don't have a say when it's your time to go, be in the present and love everybody.
My advice to incoming freshman is to not worry about the drama between you and other people. It will all seem really dumb once you're older and you'll wonder why you wasted so much time on it.
Also, never crowd or make a complete stop in the hallways. That just gets on everyone's nerves.
always keep an open mind everyone is unique and be kind but dont forget to bring your headphones everyday
I would tell an incoming freshman that it seems like there is a lot of time but it goes by fast so spend your time wisely because one day a pandemic may throw everything off track so do your work go to games and spend times with friends before the goodbyes are already here.
I would give two pieces of advice to any incoming freshman, they're pretty basic.
1. I know the work can suck and you'll want to put it off, but getting it done with the time to have a clear mindset about it is going to pay off more in the long run than you'll ever imagine.
2. If someone won't stand by you when you can't hold it together, then they don't deserve to be by your side when you succeed. Hold on to the people that try to lift you up instead of leaving you in the dirt- those are the friendships that you'll cherish forever.
My advice to an up and coming freshman is to treasure this time in high school, this time flies by fast and some of the people you meet at school won't be there once you're done. Just take time to relax and don't stress too much about social settings and how your friends think of you. Honestly the only thing that matters is how you feel about yourself, basically drink water and care for yourself. Self love is not selfish.
Keep quiet and do your homework.
My advice for an incoming freshman is to have fun and try out everything you didn't think you would be interested in. Also, be nice to everyone, invite them over to talk to you. You have no idea what someone else is going through. Or maybe they just moved from another state and have no friends. (that was me and the first person to talk to me was Julia Bollier) Lastly, go to every dance and every prom. These are memories you will never forget.
One piece of advice I would give to freshman is that it goes fast. Everyone will tell you it goes by quick, and they're not lying.
I would say to ask teachers questions. I pretty much never asked questions my freshman and sophomore years and had bad grades.
I would tell an incoming freshman to be themselves and everything else will fall into place.
One piece of advice would be to enjoy it while it lasts. Now that school is pretty much over I really miss being in class with friends and all the fun times we had.
Advise I would give a freshman is to not care so much what people think and to spend as much time with your friends as possible because soon you will all be off at different colleges.
To incoming freshman, I'd say put yourself out there socially and academically to ensure that even if you miss some amazing opportunities, at least you knew about them in the first place. Always follow the rules, because even if it might not seem like it, they're there for a reason and might one day benefit you more than you'd ever thought they would. Lastly, enjoy your time in high school - I didn't believe that it goes fast, and now here I am, just weeks from graduation, and I'm regretting letting it pass me by.
Learn how to be efficient even if you don't have a lot going on. It will be a very helpful skill later in high school and in college if you are planning on going. If you are efficient, you can spend your time with what you want to do whether that is hanging out with your friends or playing sports.
I would advise them to get all of their hard courses out of the way early and take a lot of college courses
Get involved in extracurriculars
Soak high school experiences in as much as possible. You'll never get another opportunity like this. Go try new things, but be mindful of others.
If you dress nice people will think you are gay also if you decide to carry a satchel it will make it even more difficult to explain that you are just someone with good taste. My advice is to dress however the heck you want because other peoples opinions don't matter when you know you look nice.
I would say that schoolwork is very important, but don't forget to make time for friends.
I think one piece of advice I would give to them is to make the most out of everything that happens throughout high school. I loved high school and am so thankful that I had such a good experience, I'm so sad that it came to an end the way it did but I'm happy that I made the most out of my high school experience and enjoyed everything about it
For incoming freshman, I would tell them to get involved and try to reach out to everyone. I know that is so cliche, but my high school experience was so awesome because me and friendships were so involved. Also, to not take anything for granted and to soak up every second because the four years truly go by so fast.
I would tell the incoming freshman to not be scared to go into highschool. I'd tell them that the teachers are mostly pretty cool and that they should have fun when they can because it sure does go by quick.
My advice to an incoming freshman would be to get involved and make friends. Enjoy the 4 years and every little moment you get with your friends because it goes by super fast.
Make sure you know where all your classes are and when you need to be there. There is nothing more embarrassing than walking into the wrong class, walking in 10 minutes late because you were on the wrong side of the building, or walking into a grey day class on a blue day. These are all things that happened to me by the way.
Don't procrastinate, it'll just stress you out. Also, don't take anything too seriously. Not everything in high school is life or death. Try to enjoy it the best you can and don't overthink!
The best advice I can give to incoming freshmen is to disregard people hating, actually try in class, dress nice, and live life to the fullest. Another piece of advice is to cut off toxic people. You don't need negative energy killing your motivation.
I would tell them to put themselves out there. Dont waste your time and have fun, because it flies by.
My advice for incoming freshmen would be to fully live out these 4 years of your life and make as many friends as possible. The years go by way to fast and its over before you know it and you'll regret not doing stuff.
My advice for an incoming freshman would be time management. When I was about to become a freshman lots of people told me it’s all about the transition and learning time management because in high school there’s a lot more on your plate. And as someone that was always resilient to new things I brushed it off because I thought I would be fine, but that was a mistake. So, my best advice is to truly work on your time management skills and really give attention to the things that need it instead of doing what you would rather be doing because it’s so much easier.
Get good grades, you'll regret it, always focus on yourself before anyone else, and express how you feel to teachers don't close yourself off because you dont understand or are having a hard time.
Do your homework as soon as you can especially if you play sports. Coming from another multi-sport athlete, I know you're always tired and don't always feel like doing it but, it's a lot less stressful if you just get it done and over with.
A piece of advise I would give to a freshman is too stay determined through out all your classes and to stick up for yourself without getting in trouble.
Don't give up on and sports or extracurricular activities. High school may be the last chance you have to play competitively. Also just do your homework, seriously, there's so much more stress from having to make it all up and wonder if your grade will be good enough for your parents.
Take your time and enjoy it while it lasts, you only get this experience once so make every last second as enjoyable as possible!
Take your time and cruise through your work while doing your absolute best. And remember that employers only look at whether you passed the class, not your actual in class grade.
I would tell the freshman to enjoy every moment because the best four years of your life goes quick.
Try your best, but don't focus on doing everything for college. Enjoy the experience while it's here. Also use your textbooks whether the teachers require it or not. It will further your knowledge and you're paying for it anyway.
My advice to a incoming freshman is just make sure you do your homework and if you do that its hard to fail. Another very important piece of advice is only cheat when you need to and DON'T GET CAUGHT.
My advice for a freshman would be to mainly just do your homework and dont screw around. School isnt a choice and you have to do it so you might as well just try.
My advice to freshman would be to be nice to everyone possible. You can always be the highlight of someones day.
My advice to a freshman would be focus on you first then worry about other things. get involved in sports to hold your standards high and get pushing everyday because there will be bumps in the road.
My advice for any incoming freshman would don't be afraid to open up and do things you enjoy doing. Also try not to get behind high school can sometimes be a stressful place
My advice to incoming Freshman would be to take all of your hard classes your Junior year, so that your Senior year will be a breeze.
To an incoming freshmen I would tell them to do as much activities, sports, clubs, etc. as they can because when people used to tell me that it flies by, of course I didn't believe them but it's true. Along with that it allows you to meet as many people as you can. One last thing too would be, the friends you have now are more than likely not going to be your friends at the end, everyone finds their own path at some point.
I would say get involved in more activities. You can make new friends and possibly find something you're good at. Not doing more is something I regret.
Do the work you've been assigned, and do not procrastinate to the last minute. You will end up more stressed waiting to the last moment than if you had completed the assignment days or weeks earlier when you first received it. If needed, find someone to hold you accountable, or keep a list so you can track your assignments.
My advice would be to live these four years to the fullest because it will go by fast.
Advice I would give a freshman going to Reitz would be to be open to change. High school is 4 years of your life where you will really find yourself and your friends so don't be scared to give new things and new people a chance.
The piece of advice I would give incoming freshman is to not define yourself by who you're friends with. Chances are you will drift apart and you will also most likely find that their values are different from your own and you need to focus on staying true to yourself.
My one piece of advice to a freshman would be to be yourself. Don't be shy, just try and be comfortable with who you are and try to find people with similar interests. If people don't like you for some reason, don't spend time worrying about them. Just find people that do like you for who you are.
My piece of advice would be for them to not give in to pressure about assignments in their class rooms, you have to stay clam and pull through till the end, you will feel so much better.
Work Hard play hard, but make sure to work first.
Have fun while it lasts
One piece of advice I have to uncoming freshmen is to not accept any deals for an elevator pass. We do not have a swimming pool on top of the school!
I would tell them that they think they have plenty of time but in reality, it goes by so fast so they need to try their best the entire time they're at high school because it will most definitely benefit them in the end.
My advice to on-coming freshmen would be, Freshman year matters! Having fun and spending time with friends is important, but doing well in school and keeping your grades up is even more important and this sets the base for the rest of your high school years.
My advice would be, stay away from high school relationships. When you get with someone your end goal in that relationship should be marriage. So why are we worried about marriage and full commitment when some haven't even found their path yet. You tend to loose school focus all together if you get too hung up in a relationship.
I would tell them its not all that. you are going to go to school just like they have been doing most of their life the difference is you are going to do new things and meet new people.
