    High school is a scary and hostile enviroment. It can either be the most fun youll ever have with so many fond memories, or it can be the most miserable thing in the world. My experience was horrible in school, but mostly cuz of the poor choices i made. Get yourself a group of good friends, ones that have fun and yet do their work. Enroll in as many activities as you can. Get good grades. Whenever your friends are around someone you dont know, introduce yourself and make them your friends too. When you see that person again around others, make friends with them too. Thats the only way to get a large amount of friends or to become not popular, but at least not a loner.

    Be brave and confident. Take good care of your appearance. Try hard to make friends and work for the best at sports.

    You'll find friends who like you for who you are.

    If you don't think you can survive, you won't. Believe in yourself and you will!(Yes I know, but do it!)

    Good luck :)

    Well there's no guide, maybe there is but honestly I'm barely a sophomore and freshman year went great for me, dont worry theres no freshman treated wrong, look for your classes earlier, surely you wouldn't want to be late, and get to lunch as early as possible because the lines are huge!
