What should every freshman at your school know before they start?


The advice I would give myself as a high school senior is to go with the flow of everything and prepare for the best years of your life. High school is just a stepping stone in life and college given is another stepping stone but the life long friendships that you make and the family that you gain from classmates or teammates is a bond that you may never receive in a high school.


Start thinking about college sooner. You need to apply for as many scholarships as possible because it is really difficult to make ends meet when you move away and have to start paying for things yourself. College is very expensive and if your parents both work there is not much help out there. It is also really hard to find jobs in small towns that are willing to work around school schedules. This also makes life tough.
