Don’t be afraid to talk to the counselors if your schedule for a semester will be brutal, if you can spread out your classes so you don’t end up taking 3-4 honors or even AP classes in a single semester, try, I know a few people who are way too stressed out cramming all that work each and every day.

Regular sleep is very important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle!
Don’t be afraid to take a break every once in awhile. Life doesn’t always have to be go-go-go.
Be involved! Go to every high school sport event that you can because student sections make the best memories!
just be nice; to each other and to staff, you never know what’s going on in someone else’s life.
take a no-block senior year and take all the college credit classes you can! Also, freshman/sophomore classes are easy and will help keep your GPA up so try to get good grades.
My advice to the underclassmen would be to try the things that scare you, and push yourself as hard as you can.
Go out and just have fun, this is the only time in your life where you can mess around. Also don’t date anyone. Boys and women are nothing but trouble and waste you money faster than you can make it.

Enjoy every moment you get because it goes by so freaking fast!
Don’t be afraid to show who you truly are. My biggest regret is not being myself from day one and not showing who I cared about that I did.
Don’t sweat your grades too much, you need to put your own mental, physical, and emotional health first.
To do your best and to not let drama get in your way of graduating, but also have a little fun here and there.
Don’t think you’re too cool to participate. Your high school experience is better when you aren’t too afraid to look stupid/embarrass yourself.
Be nice to everyone!
Enjoy high school while it lasts. It flies by in a blink so don’t take it for granted.
Get all of your hard, necessary classes out of the way way before hand. Buckle down and work as hard as you can when you get here so you can enjoy your senior year when it comes. It will come quick so don’t take any of it for granted. Go to every game, every play, every concert. Do it. You won’t regret it. Oh, and take lots and lots of pictures and videos. No matter how bad you think you look.
Enjoy the moment.
The drama doesn’t matter. The lost friendships and relationships don’t matter. YOU and your mental health matter the most over everything else.

School is important but so is mental health!
Try to figure out your career pathway as early as possible, so that you can plan to take the harder classes in high school opposed to taking them all in college.

Do EVERYTHING! Get out of your comfort zone and try new things. High school is such a special time, because you don’t have as many responsibilities. Just be a kid! Make new friends, join clubs, and do things that benefit YOU. And most of all, don’t compare yourself to others, just do you.
My advice for underclassmen is to never give up on yourself and find your true friends. High school is such a stressful and intense part of your life and it’s super important to stay happy and positive through it. Try to find people who share the same morals and goals as you and just stick with them. High school will seem so much easier and bearable with the right people by your side. Get involved and just have fun.
Make sure you have a good high school experience.
Don’t mess around, get stuff turned in, and if a person or group of people goes against your morals, drop them they aren’t worth it.
Don’t get too stressed about grades just do your best, that’s all you can do.
Don’t sit in the front row at sports events.
Just try your best, and do whatever makes you happy.

Enjoy it while it lasts, use the ping pong tables before it is too late. I never got the chance too.

You have the rest of your life to live as grown up. Be a kid and be smart with the choices you make.

It’s okay to be selfish sometimes. Throughout high school I learned that you have to put yourself and your needs first. Sometimes a lot of us can be stuck in toxic relationships and we don’t have the courage to get out of them because we worry that we’ll hurt other people’s feelings. Sometimes our “friends” can prohibit us from excelling and hold us back instead. I’m not saying go out and be rude to people. I’m saying do what is best for you because you don’t want to get stuck in relationships that impede on your dreams.
Be as involved as you can even, make the most of your 4 years.
Keep your grades up.
Go to school events.
Just push though it’s hard but it gets better.
Join cross country.
DON’T HAVE FAKE FRIENDS!
Don’t fall behind.
My advice for underclassmen would be to enjoy everything and not take anything for granted. You can always find joy under any circumstances, and in the end you would rather remember all of the positive times and memories you had in high school rather than all the negative drama you focused on.
Focus on school.
Don’t take too many hard classes at once, use your time wisely, and don’t miss out on opportunities to have a great time in high school.
keep your head up and don’t let anyone ruin your dreams.
Always take things for dual credit.
That upper class boy doesn’t REALLY like you.

Get involved in the things you’re interested in.
Have confidence in yourself and surround yourself with positive people 🙂
Get involved in as much activities as possible. Try new things.
I would say that being involved is important, but be sure to only do what makes you happy instead of giving your time to things that will “look good” on scholarships or college applications. Use high school as a way to explore your interests and actually enjoy your time instead of worrying about the future.
Take classes outside of your comfort zone. High school is the perfect time to explore different areas for free. Don’t limit yourself to classes that are your strengths.
Don’t get Senioritis early. Keep doing homework and studying.
Get involved and get your work done.
Don’t be easily manipulated by your peers. If there is something that you want to do without your peers then do it. You don’t owe your peers anything.
Be yourself, don’t try to be anyone else. Changing to make yourself better for your own sake not others (in the good way).
To get all of their hard classes out of the way.
The advice I have for the underclassmen is to get involved. Do not be the lonely person standing by the wall at a function, get in to whatever event is going on.
Do what you want to do.
Live in the moment.
Go to all the games and participate in everything you can. Don’t be afraid to be yourself… don’t let people tear you down stay strong. Everyone will hit a wall at some point and just want to give up, don’t do it just keep pushing, it will all be worth it in the long run.
