Four goals to success in high school l.jpg

Four Goals to Success in High School

  • 1) Academic (Remember you will start to apply to college in 11th grade, not 12th grade!)

  • 2) Behavior (You will need letters of references for schools and jobs.)

  • 3) Attendance (Jobs will want to know this information! If you miss 11 days, you fail regardless of your grade!)

  • 4) Involvement (Your fondest memories and feeling a part of the school in some positive way.)


5 things you can do right now to improve your grade l.jpg

5 Things You Can Do Right Now To Improve Your Grade

  • 1) Use your agenda. As you get older, there are too many assignments to remember in your head. You can review them each evening before you leave.

5 Things You Can Do Right Now To Improve Your Grade

  • 2) Do your homework! The high school says if you do not do homework, you will fail! This is like an easy lay-up! You will lose lots of games if you miss them. Remember what a ZERO does to your grade! If you have two 100’s and then get a ZERO, you are down to a 67% (FAILING) with just one ZERO!

  • 3) Study a little bit as you go. Everyone knows trying to cram the night before a test does not work well and it is stressful. You will feel more confident if you review each day that night. You would not run a 6 mile race by trying to run 6 miles the day before. You would be training for months ahead of time, slowly increasing your distance.

  • 4)Show your teachers you care by asking questions, paying attention in class, and being polite. If you were in charge of teaching a group of people and some were sleeping or talking, how would you feel? You would feel they do not care and are a distraction to others. You will want to help the people who you view as seriously trying!

5 Things You Can Do Right Now To Improve Your Grade

  • 5) Have balance in your life. Studying your lessons is critical, but find time to do the things you enjoy in life. Many people forget the importance of having a balance between work and play. You must find time for this or you will become resentful of school. You want to run your life, not feel like a school or a job run your life. WORK HARD! PLAY HARD!


Last tip stand up for yourself in a way that will be helpful to you and not hurtful l.jpg

Last Tip: Stand up for yourself in a way that will be helpful to you and not hurtful!

  • 1) Passive – In an effort to avoid conflict, person allows others to take advantage of him/her.

  • 2) Aggressive – Forces opinion on other people that is loud, rude, disrespectful to another person (Even if you are right, NO ONE wants to help you or see you get your way!)

  • 3) Assertive – Stating what you feel is right and what you deserve without personally attacking another person.

    Ex: “When you (describe behavior), it feels like you are ________________.

    Ex: “I paid you to (list a job) and what I am hearing is that you cannot do the job I paid you for and I am still out my money.”
