When teens have to go back to school they get a little nervous about things like making new friends, who will be my new teacher, who will be on the new campus, will I be able to cope up with studies there and many more.
A few steps to follow to make you comfortable when you go back to school
• Drive down to school a day ahead to check the route and directions confirmed, so that the next day your time is not wasted in searching for the school.
• First when you go for admission to the school, just go around and have a look over the campus, to get familiar with, so that you have a little idea about your classroom on the very first day. If the school has an orientation program try attending that.
• Second is the list of school supplies which you should keep with you when you enter the school, so that you don’t have to panic about not having anything.
• Third is arriving a little early then the given time to your campus.
• Don’t be nervous or scared. Joining high school is not a tough task.
• Bringing a map of the school with you is a good idea, but make sure not to walk with it in front of your face.
• In case you are lost do not try to ask for help with upper classmates. They may tease you and point out the wrong direction.
• Try to join activities like sports and clubs as it will help you to make good friends fast, as well as it will count on your college applications.
• When you head for lunch don’t run there, take a breath and move properly.
• Do not get nervous or frightened to see the upper classmates. They are not always bad to you. Some might be helpful.
• Do act like a mature freshman.
• Do not boast about anything on the first day of your school.
