My Advice Essay

In this essay, I'm going to give advice to the high school freshman class to help them out with their last four high school years and to help them be successful. The advice that I am going to give might and probably will help freshmen, whether they are in-coming or already enrolled.

The first piece of advice that I believe will be the most helpful is to turn in your paperwork on time, or have it done early if possible. Make sure that you get it turned in on time to get the maximum number of points. And also make sure that you have a separate folder and notebook for EVERY class. I have found this to be most helpful. In high school, it can be easy to get your papers mixed up because many of teachers give you homework everyday. If you really have to use another notebook to write something down, tear that piece of paper out and stick it in the folder for that class. The second piece of advice is to take the time to study the information that the teachers give to you. Study for tests and quizzes several days before the exam, especially for semester tests. Some teachers make that grade worth one-third of your semester grade, and if you really want to get a good grade and do well in school, you need to study all of the time. If you are stuck on a problem or idea and don't understand it, don't be afraid to ask the teacher for help or a friend who is smart. It always pays off to ask for that extra help if you don't get something.

The third tip is to not skip class because you don't want to go or because you don't have your homework finished. If the teacher, someone that is looking at you suspiciously or the principal catches you, you know that you are going to get caught. You will have to pay the consequences for skipping class. To add something else, you might miss a class discussion, or you might miss the homework assignment the teacher would be assigning for the class work for today.

For freshmen, it can be easy to get lost or go into the wrong class by accident. There are always people that will be happy to help you get to where you need to be at the right time. A tip that someone gave me once is that the "100's" are downstairs and the "200's" are upstairs. For example, if you have a class that is in room 108, you know your class is located downstairs.

The upperclassmen might play tricks, jokes or pranks on you. When they do, you might laugh to go along with it. One of the tricks I have heard them pull is to sell you an "elevator pass." There is no such thing because the elevator is only to be used by people who have disabilities. It's not to be used by students who are capable of using the stairs unassisted.

For some young people, walking into the high school on the first day of their freshmen year can seem scary because you don't know very many people. You also might be a little nervous when that first bell rings, signaling you to find your first class. But always know that if you are having trouble with school or finding your way around, ask someone, because there are always people to help you. I hope that I have given you some advice that will be helpful throughout high school and even a little advice to follow to help you get through freshman year. My Advice Essay
