How to enjoy senior high school life without getting a Bad grade?
School is a place to learn and grow as a person. From preschool or kindergarten, you have been making more and more connections in your brain, learning the very basics and how to combine them into more complex thoughts. Now, without much thought at all, you can recognize those letters and combine them to make words or read the words from a book. School helps you to do that, and to condition your brain to complete many, many other tasks as you mature.
Here are some helpful tips to enjoy senior high school without getting a bad grade:
Open yourself up to new experiences. Senior high school is a great time to branch out and try new things. Try to get out of your comfort zone a little bit and try out for a sports team, join the choir, or even just sit with new people at lunch. This will help you discover new passions and maybe even make new friends.
Be confident in your decisions and avoid peer pressure. Don’t let anyone pressure you into activities you are not comfortable with, including sex, drugs, or alcohol. Reflect on what you want and are comfortable with, and stand your ground others will respect you for your confidence.
Become involved in extracurricular activities or clubs. High school is a great place to find people and clubs that share your interests. Sign up to be in the drama club, on the school newspaper, part of the art club—any club or activity that catches your attention and you think you'd enjoy.
Try out a sport to be part of a team. Sports are a good way to get active while also being part of a close-knit team. Choose a sport you like, such as soccer, softball, basketball, or swimming, and work hard during practice and at games to make your team (and yourself!) proud.
Reach out to people and make new friends. Whether you're a freshman or a senior, you can always meet new people and form new relationships. Strike up a conversation with someone in the hall, sit with someone new at lunch, or offer to partner up with someone you're not friends with for a class project. You might leave with a new friend!
Attend school events to broaden your experiences. Events such as school dances, sports games, and pep rallies are all an essential part of the high school experience. Even if you aren't full of school spirit, try to go to at least one school event each season—you'll likely end up making great memories.
Take classes that interest you, and make all others work for you. Electives may include Home Economics, Music, Foreign Languages, Photography, etc. Choose the classes that interest you or you think may be helpful to you when deciding on a career. As for the others, the core classes, that you must take, make them work for you. The skills you learn by completing tasks such as that prepare you for more complex tasks when you become an adult.
Participate in class. A sure way to remain bored in class is to sit at your desk and stare at the desk as the teacher presents a lesson. Become an active listener by watching the teacher and following him/her with your eyes. Answer questions, even if you think you're wrong. Ask questions if you're not sure what's going on.
By following these tips, you can learn to enjoy school more than you have in the past. While it will take some time and effort, it will be all worth it when it becomes second nature to you and you can focus on maturing into a well-rounded, responsible person who will one day be out of school, working in the job of your dreams.
