Six ways to be successful in high school

How would you like to do a job you hate or a job where you get paid nothing? If you do not become a successful student in high school, that’s what you may be stuck with. There are many ways to become successful such as being respectful, prepared, and mature.

Well, first off, you need to learn to respect your elders and be willing to do what they ask of you. Your elders include not only your teachers but the upperclassmen also. Respecting your teachers mean not mouthing off to them. Being willing means to do what they ask of you; do not fight them or tell them no. You also need to be respectful to the upperclassmen. In the hallways, do not push, trip, kick, yell at, or just do anything to them at all. To be successful in high school you must be willing to learn, or willing to help out your teachers and do what they ask of you. So that is how being respectful and willing will help you succeed in high school.

Secondly, you need to be prepared and organized to be successful in high school. Being prepared and organized are tied together very well. If you keep all of your school stuff organized, whether it is in your locker or if you have a binder for all of your papers, you should label each section to keep organized. That way when you get to class you will know exactly where everything is and be perfectly prepared for when your teacher asks for your homework or whatever else they may want. Also, being prepared means having all of your materials ready such as pencils, notebooks, or whatever else you may need. If you never have your materials ready time after time you can eventually get written up which goes on your records which colleges look at and may affect future jobs you apply for. This can, therefore, lead you to an unsuccessful year in high school.

Lastly, two of the most important things about being successful in high school are being responsible and mature. Being responsible is one thing. It’s not middle school anymore where if you lose your homework the teacher says oh it is okay, I will just give you another one and you can turn it in later. While you are in high school you need to take responsibility for your own stuff. You only get one homework assignment and if you lose it, oh well too bad, you get a zero. Being responsible also means keeping track of all your books. Keep a lock on your locker so no one can go and steal anything. Being mature is also a big part in being successful in life. You are in high school now so being mature means not playing games or acting up in class. You are in high school, you need to act like it and not like you are in second grade. If you be mature and responsible this will lead you to be successful in high school.

Now, I bet you are sitting here wondering how that leads up to being successful in high school. Well, if you live to all of those things (being respectful, prepared, and mature) and all the other things that will lead up to you getting good grades. Good grades lead up to you getting into a good college and getting a good job. That job can be your dream job if you work hard and not the one that you hate and will be miserable.
