Too many threads that spam the precious pit about starting school (High School especially). SO, upperclassmen, and students in general, post info for other students! All info will be gathered in the first post.

your probably not gonna get any attention from upperclassmen, so i wouldnt try to suck up to em, they'll just look at you like your retarded.

dont be a jerk to a upperclassman, they'll make your life hell.

keep your grades up, you dont wanna be a senior panicking bc your GPA isnt high enough.

take your SAT/ACT early, get a feel for it and work hard.

Quote by samick007
if your a freshman, don't be an idiot (which may be impossible)

No matter what a freshman does, it is stupid. There is no way to avoid it. Just try to be less stupid then the other freshman. Also be as outgoing as you can, the more things you do, the more people will know you. Have a group of friends you hang with, but don't confine yourself to that one group. Get to know and be friends with everyone.

Remember that every single thing that happens in high school and every choice you make is the most important thing that will ever happen in your life and should be dealt with in the most dramatic way possible.
I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

are juniors upperclassmen? or is it just seniors
EDIT: nvm.
freashman, you are not the biggest baddest koolest dudes around. unless your name is chuck norris or jessica simpson. make friends with some upperclassmen. remember, most alot of 11th graders have cars. some 10ths do. that is the key. make friends with people who have cars.

That sounds more like advice for if you're getting raped rather than starting school.

However.. to freshman/sophomores: Respect the juniors/seniors, keep yourself on the down low (especially if you have a small school that has gossip that spreads like a wildfire in California), keep a tight-knit group of friends that share the same interests as you.

There was a kid (The Stereotypical Blonde haired skinny as **** kid) that (used) to be popular in my school, every guy and every non-shallow girl immediatly thought he was a poser, he did it again, now nobody talks to him.

I failed half my classes last year, and I've never failed before, I just stopped caring...
also since it's still summer i'm gonna pretend school's a myth created by the goverment to opress the youth.

Don't wait outside your class ages before the bell rings.


Don't try to look cool in front of older kids, we're on to your games.

get involved with extra-curriculars, its the best way to make upper-classmen friends and it looks good on your resume, also do volunteer work.

It's hard to maintain the two, though. I say, if something bad relationship happens to you, just screw it and forget about it.

After all is said and done, you can't go pleasing everyone one, so screw it.

Oh, and get involved with school, like student council or clubs. You will meet new people and your HS experience will be enjoyable.

Be friends with the kids in the marching band because they are always one of four things.

1.) Stoners- know where to get good pot.

2.)Intelligent- know how to do your homework.

3.)GOOD Musicians- you are on a guitar site so you should like musicians.

4.)CREEPY- steer away.

there's one in four chance you'll find someone to hang out with, at least that's how it is in my high school. I am in the band. I used to smoke pot, I'm smart and I'm a good musician.

Plus I know this from Middle School but I assume it applys in high school. Don't try to be "popular" everyone has their own share of popularity as every one has their own share of fame wether you're world famous or famous in your neighborhood is like wether you're popular in your close circle of friends or the most popular person in the school. Just worry about yourself because noone wants to hang around "that guy".
