In high school it is important that a student have a balance in their schedule where they are challenged yet not overwhelmed how can you achieve balance? Balance academic courses with electives, as well as balancing honors and on

level courses. If you have a high B or solid A in a on level class, have a conversation with the teacher about being recommended for honors for the next year to add more rigor to your schedule. Each year schedules are built in the spring for the following year. Keys to being successful in HS Choose a realistic and balanced schedule Have a plan of attack- set goals for high school Push yourself to be the best Stay Involved or get involved in an activity that sounds appealing Understand you have a VOICE- do not hesitate to reach out to teachers

Common Issues Freshmen Face Not studying/preparing enough for tests/quizzes/ exams Failure to complete homework Lack of organization (homework getting lost in the backpack or locker) Worrying more about fitting in or socializing than grades Not attending help sessions with teachers when needed Not taking responsibility for grades and staying on top of current assignments and/or using the opportunity to do test recovery to raise a grade
