Very soon, 8th graders will be entering their first year of high school. This is exciting, but also nerve wracking. Teachers are preparing the 8th graders for high school, however; it is what we choose to do for our Freshmen year, to follow the advice or simply not. Here will be a helpful guide for future Freshmens. It’s always better to know what to prepare for then to know right before high school starts.

Tips to prepare the first year

  • Think about joining extracurriculars
  • Check the school websites for updates, student life, and what is expected

Time can fly by in the blink of an eye and then we’ll see ourselves applying for college or whatever you have planned after high school.
