Tips for School

Middle School

Middle school is a great opportunity to meet new people and begin to explore who you are and what you want to do with the rest of your life. It can also be a difficult time, as there are a lot of things that are changing in your life. You are meeting new people. There are more choices and decisions to make. Instead of being in one classroom with one teacher all day, you now have multiple teachers. You no longer stay in one classroom; instead, you have to switch classes for different subjects. You will be faced with more responsibilities. Here are a few tips to help you with the middle school transition. Don’t be afraid to ask your teachers, counselors, or staff at your school if you need help.

  1. Get organized
  2. Do your homework.
  3. Talk to your Teachers by asking questions. If you are unsure of an assignment, what you need to be doing, or anything, just ask. Your teachers are there to help you.
  4. Get involved in extra-curricular activities. Find things you enjoy – sports, clubs, activities, and get involved. This is a great way to meet new
    people and to have fun.
  5. Get good grades. Turn your assignments in on time, ask questions, and take advantage of extra credit opportunities if available. Remember to get absent work and check in with your teachers when you return.
  6. Stay Healthy. Get a good night’s sleep and eat a good breakfast before school.
  7. Talk to your parents and keep them informed of what is going on in your middle school life.
  8. Find an adult you trust to talk to when you have problems.
  9. Choose your friends wisely.
  10. Come to school and have fun!
